It's not speculation. I mentioned there was one esoteric hardware
issue--but it IS a hardware issue... and one that I understard requires
sending the unit back. With my receiver it loses synch from the coax
digital out when I do things such as turn on lights in the house. It's a
real issue and not some whacked issue with my cables or my house wiring.

Sure, there is sometimes noise on this list... andm like I said, you tend to
only see problems. But I don't think many people just type up a complaint
for attention.

Thanks,
Phillip

In your case, absolutely true. However, having this issue turn into 'likeliness
of hardware issues' is a case of someone, somewhere taking the case for a leap.
I'm not blaming you; You are pointing out fact. The application of 'likely'
is statistical spin, rather than fact. It is that point which I call
speculation.
