Mitsubishi WS-65611 losing HD signal

I hope someone can help with this problem.  My WS-65611 has always been a great TV, but lately it think it's losing sync on tv programs, either live or recorded, on my DirecTV Hi-Def dvr.  If I switch the input to one of the 480i inputs, it works ok, so it's not the box or cables.  The screen goes black & audio stops, and none of the remotes work.  When it comes back, there's a message saying there was a power outage or a connection is wrong.  Sometimes, the audio goes all the way up, sometimes it goes down.  The reason I think sync might be involved is that when I put up the device menu (if the buttons happen to be working), the audio & video come back.  I was thinking that was caused by the menu providing the sync for the picture. I just can't stand it flashing on & off, sometimes screwing up for hours, sometimes perfect for days at a time.  If I had to guess based on the intermittant nature of the problem, I'd say something is loose, probably the input for the green component cable that carries the sync.  But it'll cost me about $100 for a housecall by a repairman, and another $85 for an estimate, before they even fix the darn thing.  Is it worth fixing?  Is the whole thing ready to go belly-up?  Please keep whatever answer you can come up with in layman's terms, because I obviously don't know what I'm talking about.

    Sorry, but I don't understand what you're trying to tell me. It has an integrated HD receiver, but I want more HD than I can get with an off-air antenna.  I'm hooked up to a DirecTV HD Digital Video Recorder.

    The TV loses either power or the signal periodically.  It goes to black, audio stops, remotes don't work. When it comes back after a few seconds, audio is higher or lower. Sometimes the remotes work, sometimes they don't. This only happens on the 1080i input from the DirecTV Tivo, either live or recorded.

Ws 65611 will not play HD channels. Screen gets fuzzy like it is trying to focus, then converts to blue screen that states "Check connections or power. The connections for RGBHV or YPrPb invalid" I have...

This model only has one HD input---it has two sets of component inputs on the back and one is marked 480/1080----in the menu it will be the DTV input.

Check to make sure you are not connected to the other component input.

Let me know what happens and let me know exactly where you are connected and what are using for signal.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

My ws-65611 always stay in 480i even with HD signal.

If you are using the component connection, make sure you are connected to the one that will support 1080i. If that is not the problem, make sure that the HD receiver is outputting 1080i and not 720p. No RPCRT will support 720p and the video may be down-rezed to 480 since this is the case.
