Default Problem Switching Sound inputs after changing CAPS

Hi I have a 606 and have had the same issue where the HDMI stopped switching and would only come one after 20/30 mins and on some HDMI not at all..

I decided to change the 5 x 100uf Caps hoping this would fix my issue..

Which it did!! Or so that's what I thought..
(I've now got fully switching HDMI ports from power one and On Screen Display)

Also had fully working sound and was happy as Larry (and belive me Larry is a happy chappie!)

After about an hour of xbox I decided to switch over to Sky... Oh.. No sound...!!

After some troubleshooting found that I needed to cycle through the sound modes se get it to work.. It no long automatically switches say from Dobly Digital to Pro Logic Movie.. Also will not switch to Dobly Digital on Sky Box at all.. Option does not show when cycling through. (change back to XBox and Dolby Digital is there)

Can anyone help me with this issue I'm chuffed the HDMI is now working but an AMP with not sound is like a blunt pencil... Pointless!!!

Default Could it actually be a connected device?

With all the success people have had replacing caps it seems unlikely, but I wanted to throw this out there.

I'm running the SR607, and have been seeing this happen for a while now. I have a Tivo Roamio, Roku, and AppleTV direct connected to the receiver on the HDMI ports, with an older Sony DLP TV connected via an HDMI-to-DVI cable.

This is where it takes a turn. Initially I had the AppleTV connected to the network with gigabit ethernet, thinking transfer speeds from my computer would be much better. I wasn't seeing that happen, so I disconnected the ethernet and went wifi. And the receiver startup problems stopped happening.

And then it started again. And then I had to power cycle the AppleTV and saw that the ethernet had been plugged back in (must have been one of the kids), so I disconnected it, and the startup problem stopped again, and continues to be fine after a couple days.

I don't expect that everyone out there with this problem has this same setup, but I would expect most to have multiple device connected to their receiver. So what I'm suggesting is that it may be worth troubleshooting this by removing a device, try it for a couple days and see if it resolves. And move on to the next device... If it works without one of the devices maybe there is some kind of feedback from it over the HDMI port that's causing trouble.

Again, unlikely, and inconvenient not having all your devices easily switchable, but maybe something to try while you wait for your caps to arrive.

Update: 2 weeks later and the problem has not returned.
