I finally had a chance to set mine up today. It was delivered on Tuesday, but I was away on business. I've got a lot of tweaking to do, but have things working for the most part. I have a couple of concerns at this point in addition to the low subwoofer output.
I'm having issues with the remote. It controls the volume, and will change inputs, etc., but it won't open up the home menu nor control anything in the menus. I've had to do it all at the receiver. Is it a bad remote or is there some setting that needs to be addressed to give it full control?
Another issue is getting audio from tv to the receiver via optical cable. I'm sending audio, as well as video, directly from the cable TV box for watching TV, but I had been taking advantage of the smart tv features by sending audio back to my receiver via digital optical, and it worked fine with my Kenwood. I've got no sound with this, and I checked to make sure I reconfigured the input settings. Is there something I'm missing?
I'm a bit frustrated at this point. I didn't have HDMI capability with my old receiver, but I'm wondering if maybe simpler is better. Hopefully I'm just making some rookie mistakes with the set up so far.
