hello, I am a new subscriber but I've been lurking here for the past month or two. I have really learning a lot about home theater and based on the information I've read here and my own research I've recently purchased a set of Paradigm Reference 40's and a Pioneer 45tx. I had originally purchased the Denon 3803 but I returned it because it because I found the remote to difficult to use. In the next couple of weeks I'm planning on buying a Hitachi RPTV. In any case, I have an issue with my Pioneer and I'm hoping that someone can help me solve it. I've got a Sony 5 disc dvd hooked up with an optical cable to the receiver. I also have my digital cable box (scientific atlanta)that only has a digital coax jack to output the audio. I've got that going into the receiver on one the digital cable inputs. The problem is that every action where I sue the remote for the receiver results in a "popping" sound coming out of the speakers. It only happens if I'm on one of the digital cable stations. If I disconnect the cable box, the "popping" almost stops. Anuy ideas what might be causing this? I guess I'd like to know if I need to excahnge the receiver, or is this an issue I can resolve in another way. Thanks!
