I have lurked here a little, and read most of this thread, and now I have a problem that prompts me to ask for help.
I have 2308 that I've never gotten to work really well. I have been unable to get surround sound from the DVD player trough hdmi. That is, I could get set the output so there was sound from the back speakers, but I did not get the actual 5.1 sound track. I have assumed this is because of the EDID problems described at avs-vb

After simply ignoring the problem for a year or two I recently tried upgrading the firmware. But that only made the the problem worse. I have gone from being able to watch movies with stereo sound, to getting no sound at all and an image with completely wrong colors.
The firmware upgrade program did not report any errors. The DVD player is a rather cheap one called Denver. I have hdmi from it to the amp, and hdmi from amp to tv.
When everything is connected the way I think it should be, including all variations I can think of to the setup of both amp and dvd player, the colors on the TV is all wrong and there is no sound. The left side of the LCD display shows a little box with "ana", but no channel indicators below.
If I change to a different source on the TV, there's suddenly sound out. The LCD display now indicates a 2 channel digital input.
If I set the HDMI Audio input to "TV" instead of Amp, I get sound from the TV speakers, and the picture turns correct.
I have my TV decoder hooked up to the other HDMI input, and that works flawlessly. Bypassing the amp completely with an HDMI cable directly from the DVD player also works. I have switched around the cables and tried the DVD player in both inputs. I have done a reset of the reciever, and also a reset of hdmi that I found described some pages ago in this thread.
Have anybody heard of similar problems, or have suggestions on what else I should try?
