    Today I decided to watch Gladiator at reference level volume, and I noticed that when the action scenes came up like the opening scene and a couple of the coliseum fight scenes where there was a large demand for power for the receiver (vsx-49tx) I saw my monster cable hts 5100 powercenter's amp rating more than double during these scene's. Anyways, during these scenes when there was a LOUD mid-freq noise like chariots running into walls or sword blades hitting armor located in the center channel speaker (klipsch rc-7) that is sitting on top of my tv (sony vega 27") the tv began to flicker violently in the upper left corner of the screen. I don't know if this a problem with my receiver because my dvd player is routed through the component inputs and maybe since there is such a draw for power for the audio section of the receiver the the video side loses some of it's current and hence video quality suffers, or maybe my tv has a loss of current and it flickers for that same reason (now remember the upper left corner is where the tv picture starts on all interlaced tv's). Finally it could be aproblem with my speaker maybe some downside to using horns instead of tweeters or because the sound is vibrating the tv but I've never heard of this before. Gladiator is probably my favorite movie I've watched it about 10 times on this system but never at reference level before and I never had this problem, but other than these scenes everything else was fine and I highly recommend watching it at such volumes the movie is funner and more involving in such an enviroment, and no shutdown probs on my 49tx either. Since I don't know where the this problem lies I am going to post it in all three forums tv's, speakers,and receivers and see who knows the problem. Thx in advance for any help.

    Daniel,

    Run the movie again at the same volume, except disconnect and/or remove your center channel speaker. You should isolate the problem pretty quickly.
