    This started Saturday and I don't know if it is hardware related or what...

    When watching using my Samsung STR-151 regardless of what channel I am on all of the sudden the picture freezes, the audio sounds like a skipping CD, and then the signal is lost and I cannot change channels.

    If I turn off the receiver for a few minutes then back on again the picture is back in wonderful HD. Anyone have any thoughts on this... could it be a hardware problem or do you think it may be having some problems with the signal and locking up?

    Thanks in advance,

    -JA

    Thats a Samsung hardware problem, it seems to be some component after warming up. Some have used a cooling fan to help and give it plenty of air space for ventilation.

    Thanks for the help don. It is what I figured it would be. I will try and see what I can do for a fan.
