Question about Onkyo HT-S580 System

HT-S580 Randomly Shuts-Off

My connections are as follows: Dish Network satellite into the receiver using composite cables. When I turn the system up to 40 it shuts off after a few minutes. None of the other connections have this issue. Please give guidance as I have NO clue. Thank you kindly. Shawn.

    We, too, have a DISH connection which is currently off due to a bad wind storm. However, for some reason, the "protect" mode is now on, preventing us from even watching a DVD. What's up?

Most systems like this have what is commonly called 'protect' mode. This usually kicks in when the volume is at a very high level, and the unit tries to use more power than its designed for, or it is overheating. The reason why only this connection has problems and others do not could be a few reasons. One, satellite signals usually carry high quality digital sound, and use more power to play sounds that may be inaudible. Two, You may also want to upgrade your composite cables to the highest possible quality. (There are many durable gold plated models that work well). Low quality cables could hasten your problem and produce signal bleed. In addition to this, the unit may cut power when it overheats. Make sure the vents on the unit are not obstructed, and that it is not near other components that are generating heat.
