Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

That sorta sounds like a Ground Loop. Have you tried disconnecting the Coaxial Cable running into your Cable or Sat Box and see if you are still getting feedback?

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hmmm Ill give that a shot. If thats the case it seems kinda strange as the only thing Ive changed recently is hooking up hdmi from the cable box to the sherwood. Since the cable box was already connected via component (and the sherwood will convert to hdmi) youd figure I would have already had this issue before the hdmi connection. We'll see, thanks JJ.

Truly a shot in the dark. I have been surprised at the number of times it has actually helped however.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

TypeA,
Had the same problem with mine. It appeared that in Standby Mode the R-972 was not totally turned off. It was sending random "thumps" to my sub. Frequently enough, that caused my sub, which was set to automatically turn-off in the absence of a signal, to stay on. Whether it is a defect in the R-972 that Sherwood would fix or not, I never pursued.

My solution was to connect my sub to a "smart" power strip controlled by the Sherwood. When I put the Sherwood in Standby, the strip notices the change and powers off the sub. Turns the power to the sub back on when I power it up. Works sort of like a switched outlet on the back of a receiver, but without the its limitations.

That sounds like it well could be the solution. Great plan of action and I am so glad that it has worked out well for you.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Oh wow I hope it doesnt come to that as neither of my subs are in the same room as the Sherwood. I unplugged the cable box last night and sadly it made no diff. Ill continue to hunt for a solution and at least I know the Sherwood is under warranty, if it comes to that. Thanks for the idea Bob

Type A,
If you send it back to Sherwood and they fix it, let me know. I might send mind in too while I'm on vacation.
