    Just got on this bandwagon recently becouse I upgraded to Tivo with only 1 composite and 1 s video in on my tv, so now everything goes into my Harman Kardon AVR 120 out to my tv the problem Im having now is my reciever keeps shutting down, Is there something Im missing? Is there a better HK that will do what I want?

    For instance my Tivo is connected to the input on Video one of the reciever using Svideo and Copmposite audio then S video on Monitor out to tv so when I press Video 1 to turn all those on it comes on for a few seconds then shuts off.

    Ive been playing around a bit and when I reset the processor it works for awhile but then starts up again.

    *Update*

    my rear speakers recently were cut but the leads were still connected to the receiver therefore shorting the processor which is a failsafe on HK,I disconnected the speakers and tested seems to work fine so far will keep updated!

    H/K's internal circuit protection is very sensitive. Watch those connections. No frayed, dis-connected or loose wires. Glad it seems to be working now.
