I have the same receiver with the same problem. I fixed it by using a cleaning spray on the inside of the input switch. Deoxit 5 is the cleaner and it took care of the problem.

I recently had an extended episode solving a distortion issue with my Onkyo A-807. I also asked my repairman about the spontaneous switching of the output selector. He told me the output is managed by a motor driven selector located in the back of the unit, not where the dial is, so I don't expect cleaning the contacts at the knob to help. The idea of protecting the remote cable, if you use it, seems more plausible. The contacts at the knob are very difficult to access, and according to my repairman, the motor is in a sealed compartment - so I think remedies other than protecting the remote cable will be difficult.
Just FYI, my distortion problem was from the record selector position "Source". It goes away when the selector is in the "Off" position, or when I disconnect the cable going from my CD recorder to the DAT "REC" jack in the back. I spent a lot of time and money figuring this out. I suspect it is an issue with more than just my unit. If you don't have anything plugged into the DAT jack, or leave the record source on off , you'll never notice this and enjoy a happier listening experience.

The problem (Known to Arcam) is with the some diodes in the power supply to the DSP board. Over time they do not work properly and the power fluctuation makes the sound distort. They need replacing (only once to a higher spec) if you contact Arcam they can advise you.
