rrr *** I live in US, and have digital cable, which carries most of the channels' audio on both analog and digital frequencies. However, there are just a few channels that come in analog audio only, unfortunately one of them is a local news channel, which I watch once in a while - it's good to know what's happening in your own backyard. To find out what is happening everywhere in the world, I watch international news channel. I just got my AVR 300 - about 10 days ago - and was enjoing it very much first five days, then I experienced the follwing: when switching from a channel that comes in digital audio to a channel that comes in analog audio only, the AVR would take about 17 seconds to switch from digital input to analog audio input, and I would have no sound during those 17 seconds. According to the manual, AVR automatically switches between analog and digital inputs, and defaults to digital if both are present. I also know that I can manually chose analog audio input by holding the corresponding input key (SAT in my set-up), but it would be nice if AVR did it automatically in a reasonable time period. I described this to the tech support here in the US, who replied that AVR normally takes up to 25 seconds to switch to analog audio after digital audio signal disappears. He could not explain why it worked perfectly first five days, and said that it should have never worked like that in the first place - as I indicated above, I did not hear any delays in audio first five days. Also, is it normal to hear a loud "click" after it has initialized and just before the sound comes up? Thanks to everyone for your suport.
