Question: circut breaker with error on display

I have direct HDTV and while I have it set on dobly digtal on my VCR on some channels it drops out and I get a dialog normal on my display then it comes back on, this is anoying, I switch to PCM, my sound quality goes down but the breaking in to the display stops. It's like a circut breaker clicking on and off. Help, is this Onkyo or direct TV VCR problem. Onkyo is new and can still be returned..
