Then check your HTPC sound settings as the AVR can only play what it receives. If the HTPC is the only source with the issue ... the HTPC is the problem.

That's impossible - in order for audio to work with a computer, it must be using a sound card. Mine is built into my motherboard and is Realtek. Your sound card is most likely not able to decode the multichannel audio, so that's why it is playing in stereo.

If I wanted to use my PC in my HT setup, I would need to invest in a sound card that could process Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA. Right now it is only capable of stereo, or simulated surround.

No screen on my sr5008

My screen on my sr5008 goes blank after a few seconds its on. I've powered it down and waited a few minutes turned it on and still does the same thing?

If you have the PURE DIRECT surround mode selected, this is by design.

It is also a setting For the display in any mode, you can set it to do this or be on all the time. Just press the display button on the front and hold it a second.

Music, more music.

Hi all

I'm having an issue with my 7008. I'm playing two channel music from my iPad to the 7008 via airplay and was listening for about 10 minutes when I heard a loud thump and pop come through the speakers, then the 7008 shut down and the red light on the front is blinking. It's done this twice in the last month and a half but before that no problems for the last three years. I have it plugged into a power strip with a lot of other items as it's always been and my speakers (powered sub section) are plugged into different outlets.

Any idea of what it can be or where I can start testing? Thanks a lot

Start by taking the power strip out of the loop and plugging the AVR straight to the wall outlet. Also depending on the frequency of the flashing red light will determine the possible issue:

Fast blinking (ie. 2x/sec) - loose speaker wire from one post touching another; volume of 4-ohm speakers too loud; amp failure
Slow blinking (ie. 1x/2sec) - poor ventilation around the unit

Thanks JD - I think the light was blinking more like once a second and it's just weird to me because it's only happened twice.

I'll start checking out the items you mentioned though
