We are using HDMI over CAT5 to distribute the AV to other rooms in the house. The one problem we're seeing is that audio is only getting sent if the input from the device being used is HDMI. For optical or analog input, the sound comes out of the speakers attached to the amp, but not over HDMI. Internet radio is the same. If the source is connected via HDMI, it works fine. I can't see anything in the manual that says this shouldn't work; is the amp defective, or am I missing something?
Well, I found something in the manual that appears to confirm that non-HDMI inputs are not sent out over HDMI, although it's well hidden and not at all obvious:

So, we got a new DVD player, and now nearly everything is using HDMI inputs.
There was a slight hiccup, the video out stopped for one or two inputs, but we did a factory reset, and everything seemed fine, until today. Last night, I hooked up a Raspberry Pi, running XBMC, and that was working OK, as were the other inputs. This morning, I got no video output from any HDMI input (audio was OK). The one remaining non-HDMI input had video output. So, I did a factory reset, again, and now the amp doesn't turn on at all. I've removed power, and left it for several minutes. When I plug the power back in, nothing happens for a while, then the green power light on the front comes on, but the amp won't turn on.
Unless there's some other way to reset, I think it's going back, first to be replaced to see if it's a faulty model rather than a general problem.
