My AVR 100 is about 5 years old and I have always been very happy with the sound. However, this morning I turned on my TV and the sound immediatly began cutting in and out at about 2 second intervals. At first I thought it was the satelite receiver which is connected to the AVR using analog cables. I tried my digital coax connection between the sat. and the avr and although the display registered a signal there was no sound at all. I then turned on my DVD player and again, no sound at all using my optical cable. When I used my 6 channel analog inputs from the DVD to the AVR everything was fine. I switched the AVR between sources a few times but no change. So, I left the AVR running with the 6ch. input for about 45 minutes. When I came back, everything was fine. Oh, neither my universal remote or the HK remote would control the AVR. I had to do everything on the front of the unit. Is my AVR 100 dying after only 5 short years? I really like this unit and don't really want to buy another right now. Does anyone know what is going on? I don't want to be bringing this back and forth to the repair people because it is an intermitant problem. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
