Sorry to Be The First Bad Review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Onkyo TX-NR509 5.1 Channel Network A/V Receiver (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Sorry to be the first to have a bad review. Please note that I have ordered a replacement unit as I believe this specific unit to be bad (at least I hope so). The unit I recieved from Amazon was in great shape, seemed ok, until I tried to connect any HDMI 1.4a source to it. ALL HDMI 1.4a sources have random video and audio flicker. HDMI 1.3 sources work fine, no flicker whatsoever. I have tested three 1.4a sources including both Panasonic and Samsung 3D Blu-Ray players. The HDMI 1.4a sources all work perfectly when bypassing the reciever direct to the TV (Panasonic GT30). The flickering ONLY occurs when routing through the reciever, and occurs on all HDMI inputs. All cables have been tested in both direct and through-reciever configuration and the potnetial of it being a bad cable has been completely ruled out. Not sure if it is a bandwidth issue with the reciever or just something wrong with the HDMI control. BTW, I updated the reciever with the latest firmware and the issue remained afterwards.

I just submitted a review with this problem when using a PS3, had to go with optical cable for the audio which sorted it.

Sorry to hear you're having issues. I'm having the same issue now. I can't live with things this way when watching blu-rays. It is simply too annoying. Unfortunately I recommended this receiver to my dad who bought one as well. I expect him to have the same issues. Disappointing...

I solved this by turning off deep color on both the blu-ray player and the receiver. It's at least worth a try.

Same with me. I fixed this by turning off Deep Color. I read that its not needed for blu ray video yet so its not critical.
