After 3 weeks waiting I finally got my HDMI cable that connects the 434 Plasma and the Pio 868 DVD player. The image was worth the waiting and I was extremely happy till...... I noticed the remote control of the Pio AX5i ampliefier was not working anymore???. It sends out the signales but there is no reaction from the amplifier on these. I switched everything of, unplugged everything and vica versa but it still is not working. ( I checked the basics such as worn out batteries, loose cables etc) Might this be due electrostatic energy disruption coming over the HDMI connection between the plasma and the DVD player and backfiring into the Amplifier??? Never had this type of problem before with my good old stereo. Anybody had the same experiences or any suggestions? Ronald - Pio 434HDE plasma, AX5I receiver and 868I DVD player.
