Ok guys and gals, I need some help.  I have had my Onkyo 5.1 system (Model HTS670b) for a couple months now, and am generally happy with it.  That said, I am having an odd issue that I hope someone can help me with.  My receiver is the HT-R420, and when I turn it off, 50% of the time, after left alone for a little while, it won't turn back on using either the system power button or the remote.  If I unplug the receiver, and then plug it back it, the system will turn on.  What the hell is going on?  It never shuts off by itself, which I have heard is a common issue due to heat, but mine is just the opposite, lol.  It can't be a faulty wire because it ALWAYS turns on once I unplug and replug the power cord.  Help!

Not too sure, huuuuge guess, but it sounds like a glitch in the firmware where a flag isn't being reset or something since it's still receiving some power while plugged in.  I would do a little research on the AVS forums, but I would definitely have it replaced / repaired.  It should have at least a 1 year warranty, right?

Since it's new, just wondering if there has been any confusion between power and stand-by mode.  I have an Onkyo receiver myself, and occaisionally I'll kick the thing into off when it's meant to be in stand-by.
