The Sherwood R-772 is an audio and video high definition receiver. This is similar to the Sherwood R-771, but uses HDMI inputs and outputs as well as having built-in XM radio and AM/FM radio support. DTS and Dolby standards are used to create high definition audio output, which can be output digitally. Video input can be converted from Composite and S-Video to Component, and 7.1 audio can be converted to 5.1 audio if needed. A second zone can be used with an independent remote, and both RF and IR remotes are supported. In addition to 100 watts per channel surround sound on 7 channels, a separate pre-amp output is available for a subwoofer.

I have a new R772 hooked up to a new Epson 8700U projector. Can't get any HDMI signal from either Charter Hi-Def box or a new Samsung BD-D5300 Blue-Ray. Only get 30 second blips of pictures. It worked fine all day last Saturday.
