Unhappy Onkyo tx-nr 3009 sound issue

I appreciate all the help I got on my orginal post about the Onkyo tx-nr 3009 vs the denon 4311. I purchased the Onkyo3009. I have been very happy with the purchase. The audyssey dsx has been easy to set up and given very good sound including surround sound field separation using my 9.1 system during movies and sports. ***My kids have been saying for a while that they have heard a buzzing sound coming out of the speakers at times and then it goes away. I had never heard it until last night with direct tv. It would not go away. I even turned the system off for a while and then turned it back on. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know what the issue might be.

If it is an intermittent buzzing sound, it may be a grounding issue with your reviever or a device connected to it. I had the same issue with my receiver a while back (Onkyo 606). After disconnecting things 1 by 1 I found it to be a grounding issue with my DTV box. So I plugged everything back up and went out to the ground off my dish and disconnected it and it went away.. So I connected up properly and all was well. I would try this 1st (including proper ground at outlet) and also inspect the AV cables for damage and proper connection. Then check speaker/sub wires/connections as well. Is your receiver/components connected to a surge protector/power conditioner?

I will look into that. I do have a panamax either m5300 or m5400 surge protector/line conditioner. I can't remember which off the top of my head. I also have a monster cable AVS 2000 powerstabilizer. does this change what you think i should do?

From the wall outlet it does. With that connected it should be fine unless there is something going bad with it. You can run a 3 prong extension to another outlet in the house just to rule it out, but I would try the step below 1st.
You still can have ground issues with things connected up to the receiver that have seperate grounds running from them. Things like dish/cable boxes are 2 prime examples. When you here the buzz sound again, unplug the HDMI (or whatever cable/cables that goes from the STB to the receiver). If the buzz sound goes away, you know that is it. If not, it is something else. Is the buzz sound comming from the speakers or sub (or both).. It could be a bad cable someplace or speaker wire crossed or not tight. But if it is intermittent, it probably is not the spreaker wire..
