For years I've had this massive Pioneer receiver to pump movies and iTunes from. Yesterday, while watching a download of the Daily Show, the receiver kept shutting off randomly. Today, while blasting 50 Cent's "Ayo Technology" it kept shutting off again -- ayo!! I can't quite figure out what's wrong. It's not overheated. I've tried several outlets around the house and it still shuts off. Anyone have any suggestions?
If I can't solve this at home I'm going to have to take this monster to the repair shop, which leads me to my next question. I didn't buy this bad boy at a major retailer so I don't have an extended warranty through a Best Buy or Circuit City. Where do you take these things when they need to be repaired? We live at a time when mom and pop electronic repair shops are hard to come by...
Pioneer's site offers a list of Pioneer authorized service centers, but how do you know which one to go to? Do you just pick the one that's closest to you?
On a lighter note, without a receiver to stream my iTunes to I've taken my Harmon/Kardon iPod boombox out. I had totally forgotten just how good this thing is. This baby's got bass! If I didn't want more boom coming out of my TV for movies I would just scrap the receiver and listen to this thing.
