Problems with my Onkyo receiver

    Dear members,

    This is my first question on this forum. I noticed something strange, and I'd like to know if somebody experienced the problem I have.

    I have an Onky TX-SR602 receiver, with a 2/2.1 setup.
    Sometimes, let's say once per week or so, when I turn on the receiver, it only processes sound from the front-left speaker. Sometimes it doesn't process any sound at all, and sometimes it doesn't process sound from the surround speakers.
    This problem has a very effective and simple solution: just turn off and on again, and then the sound is processed correctly.

    An important information is that I always unplug the receiver, I never keep the receiver in stand-by mode.

    1) This is not a wiring problem
    2) This is not a problem of the source-signal. It happens with the tuner, CD, and DVD
    3) It ONLY happens when I turn on the receiver, and only sometimes.
    4) It never happens during a session.
    5) It is not a setup problem

    I think it might be caused by a software problem in the processor, or by some kind of interference from another signal. I already installed a line-filter ( 125Volts ) but the problem ocurred again last weekend.

    Does anyone know what is happening? Even if you don't have an Onkyo receiver, did you ever experience problems like this?
