Been a member for a while, but I don't post much. I need a little help. I have an old Yamaha HTR 5840 receiver. Since it's not the time to upgrade I kept the receiver when I moved. I lost the receiver a while back, but was able to manage. Well now I need to change settings to fit the new room. Can I access my receiver's menu from the receiver itself, or do I need to order a new remote or buy a higher end universal to access it? I am having trouble if its even possible. Thanks guys.

In some cases the OSD/menu can be accessed via the front panel, check your Owner's manual to confirm, although if you don't have arrow buttons on the front panel then likely not and will require the remote or if you have a Harmony remote can likely download the remote codes to the Harmony remote from the Logitech website.

If you think your AVR is defective, refer to the Owner's manual and reset the microprocessor a few times in a row.
