    I'm not a big electronics wiz but the experts in this group have
    helped me in the past with regards to tapping into TV problems. That
    said, I'm going to the Well again.

    We've got a 13" Onkyo TV that loses channels (video and audio) if it's
    been running awhile. It looks like the channels beyond 13 drop out
    first and then the first 12 drop out later. What's left on the screen
    is static.

    I'm thinking that since it occurs on a warm set, this may be a cold
    solder joint problem. Otherwise a tuner. Any input, tips or direction
    anyone can offer is, as always, greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't worry New Zealand free to air TV is so craped out, I drop out too when
    my TV warms up.

    Free to air TV was good (not too be confused with "BLOODY GOOD") until pay
    TV came to NZ.
