Default Home Media DVR wacky bug

Our setup...
1 Home Media DVR box connected to Onkyo receiver in living room.
1 HD box connected to Visio TV in the bedroom.

Our problem...
After watching TV in the bedroom, our living room's Home Media DVR box's output becomes distorted. It appears squished horizontally, much like watching 4:3 content without stretching to 16:9.

The details...
I have only experienced this problem when watching recorded content from the HM DVR in the bedroom but my wife says it happens when watching live programming.

The fix...
After the problem occurs, I have tried fiddling with the TV, receiver, and DVR settings with no results. The only fix seems to be pulling the plug on the DVR box.


Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, have you found a fix? This is driving us crazy!

Are you running HDMI through the receiver?

Yes. I am running HDMI to the receiver and from the receiver to the TV.

Default HD Box malfunctioning

I'm having a similar issue. I have a two-TV set up woth an HD DVR in the family room and an HD box in the bedroom.
The bedroom box has stopped working. It displays the channel number but does not send a signal to the TV. The box also does not revert to showing the correct time.
The family room box is workign fine.
I was on trhe phone with Verizon last night and they had me try the bedroom box in a different room with a different TV that just as a small black (nonHD box set up to it. Same problem.
Will a new HD box solve this? Verizon says I can pick one up from them.

This is a quite different from my scenario but it sounds like you need a new box.

I think what Quake was trying to say to you was actually a two part question. 1) do you run an HDMI through your receiver and the self inplied, 2) have you tried going around the receiver and did that fix the problem. If so, it could be a handshake issue and you may have to figure out another connection scheme that will work for your setup.

Even though it would be nice to have the everything in one cable(HDMI) work, it isn't always that simple.

I see what you mean. I did run through a battery of tests of turning on/off all of the components as well as changing the settings for display with the TV... Just Scan, 4:3, 16:9, Wide Stretch. Nothing seemed to resolve the issue other than powering down the DVR.

My wife is out of town this weekend so I will try a straight shot to the TV as well as trying to narrow down if it's just watching living room DVR'ed content in the bedroom that is the problem.

Thanks for the suggestion!
