newbie (sorry, coz this problem likely isn't maybe so new...) I have been trawling thru many forums et al trying to resolve this before I felt the need to write in here. Which incidentally is by far the best forum / source for AV I hv found, so well done Stuart and company. I bought my new gear fm UK to Angola with me (didn't have time to check it all out, yes I know..). AVR4306 / Panasonic EXR 95 DVD / HDD / VHS and Mon Audio RS8 fronts plus the other 4 Silver RS spkrs / Tosh 32 LD TV. Connects are :- Local Set top Satellite box <-> DVD (scart scart), DVD <-> AVR 4306 (HDMI) AVR 4306 <-> TV (HDMI) Been setting it up over the last week or so, and been trying many settings, generally happy when its going BUT; Big problem, when turning on, I get no sound for about 10 / 15 minutes then it just pops in. I can get video on the TV thru HDMI, but no sound (not even on tuner). Any ideas please ? BTW I can heartily recommend the Ruckus access point / adaptor as a link from the RJ45 jack on the AVR4306 to the PC for internet music / set up etc, works well even if manual a bit iffy and it's also proving a bit difficult to secure the wireless on the access point... Havent quite understood how to stream music from my PC onto the AVR via this yet though.. Cheers Paul.
