No, I don't know where to download it. As far as I know, it's only available from Sherwood support. Here's hoping they have a quick recovery.

On page 10 of this thread someone is saying that 1.47i is newer than 1.47v, would be nice if this could be confirmed.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Just FYI Mike - I have been seeing the same thing with my unit. It only happens when switching to the DVR and I resolve it the same way - swap to a different video feed and then switch back. I watched the DVR when this happens and I see it pop up a "CONN" reading on the display. Not sure why it works this way either......

Is your DVR connected via component video or HDMI?
I was going to try and connect it using HDMI to see if it was having the same problem.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

It is connected via HDMI. It is intermittent so I am assuming it has something to do with a HDMI handshake issue and the fact that the DVR is always on. Perhaps I should try turning off the DVR and turning it on only when I am planning to watch cable to see if I see the same issue. I will give that a go as soon as I can and post back......

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

My DVR is connected using component video so I do not think it is a HDMI problem but something inside the receiver is having an issue when the video signal gets interrupted when switching from a recorded show back to live TV.
I was thinking it was because I was using component video and the receiver was "transferring" it to HDMI to output to the TV but it sounds like you are having the same problem as me with HDMI.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

An easy fix for this is to run the HDMI from the DVR to the TV and and optical cable for the audio to the receiver.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

That would be a work around but I do like the video scaling that the R972 does for the DVR, looks much better than letting the TV do it.

Very true. I dont like having to have my receiver on just to watch TV.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

For me, I don't ever use the speakers that are built into the TV and most shows use 5.1 audio so I just have everything turn on no matter what I am watching.
