I was recently given a RCA Home stereo receiver. It was working fine until one day after about 15 minutes all of the speakers began making a sound I can only describe as a "digital static" . almost like a scrambled sound. I thought it was the source but I checked the connections and everything was tight. I also noticed that it would never happen right away..Always took a few minutes....and only happened in surround mode.....wondering if i should repair or junk the unit......Any input will be greatly appreciated

Sounds like it's worth what you paid for it...

Sounds like you shouldn't run it in surround mode....:)

once the processor is shot.....it's shot. it's really not that uncommon on lower end receivers.
it's not a complete waste. you could move it out to the garage or something and just have stereo sound for music.
