I'm haveing simular issues with the Pioneer VSX-1021 after I replaced my Onkyo which I thought was bad for the same reasons. Hooked up my new 7.1 as directed and after a few months I experienced the same issues, such as picture becomes intermitted, snow in the screen, picture completely changing colors (pink, blue, red, ect). Then I get the error that my HD signal is not authorized and the DVR will reset. Called Verizon and the was told to reset the DVR and the results was promising for about 8hrs and the same issues retrurned. If I run my signal directly from the DVR to the TV, no issue accept that my OPC indicator on my Sharp TV flashes constantly. I cannot have had two bad receivers, but I'm at my wits end with this issue. Might I add that I had my Onkyo connected for over 5yrs with no issue. Issues started when my DVR received an upgrade, after that each receiver I place inline with the DVR seem to malfunction after a short period to time. Can anyone help? My next option is to replace my DVR while losing all saved movies in the process (that's another issue not suited for this post)

I have never been a fan of HDMI as it continues to present problems when interfacing (or trying to) with other components. Daisy-chaining HDMI is almost always problematic. A quick check of avsforum revealed some reported problems with the VSX 1021 on the HDMI passthrough, so a direct hookup to your TV is likely your best option outside of component cables. Check the firmware for all equipment for current versions. Check for the Owner's Thread for the VSX 1021 and any potential solutions. Good luck.

That's not true because I have same issue with drop offs on Fios. I had a Denon thought that was the problem after few years I got aggravated so I bought a high end Pioneer receiver Elite. Guess what same issue. I changed all HDMI cables tried different port on my tv. I get no drop offs while using Netflix Amazon prime,Xbox one and PS4 . Only when I use Live tv or on demand. I even switched to quantum and no luck. I would like to know if this issue can be fixed. I have searched the web and I'm not alone, there are thousands with same issue. thanks
