Thanks, I have tried all that but done it again just to make sure and nothing :-(.
However I tried something else this morning which makes me think the Kenwood no longer likes the Panny (even though it has worked in the past).
I connected the Panny to the TV directly for audio and video through HDMI AV MAIN, confirmed sound and picture. I then unplugged it from the TV and plugged it in the Kenwood and nothing no picture or sound! That would suggest to me that the Kenwood is not liking any of the output from the Panny.
I then just to make sure I was getting sound from the HDMI AV SUB, changed the setting on the Panny to V.Off, etc. connected AV SUB directly to the TV and sure enough from the TV no picture (as it should be) but sound. Therefore there is nothing wrong with the settings on the Panny or anything wrong with its connectors.
So even though it has worked in the past, I can only assume the Kenwood no longer likes any incoming signals from the Panny.
That has really p****d me off
. The only way I can seem to get sound to the Kenwood from the Panny is to connect the Panny directly to the TV with HDMI AV MAIN and then connect the Panny's opitcal to the optical on the Kenwood.
What is the point of spending lots of money on various pieces of kit if they don't like each other? Not happy in the slightest.
P.S. If I have no choice but to change my receiver, has anyone had any problems with the Sony STR-DH520?

IF this doesn't work, then try flipping the audio out toggle on the HDMI (main) off- but that's over ridden by the HDMI Sub settings (meaning it should cut off the audio on the HDMI Main when the Sub is set to Video Off).
