OK, I assume that since you are not using HDMI, that either your laptop or your AVR doesn't support HDMI, correct? So let's walk through the non-HDMI configuration.
1. You should have a cable plugged into the headphone-out jack on the laptop. It should be a 3.5mm Stereo mini-plug on one end, and two RCA connectors on the other end (red for right, white for left). You should have a Y-cable connected to the red RCA plug on the cable from the laptop, and the other end of the Y-cable should be connected to the AUX IN left and right RCA connectors on the front of the AVR.
2. Your AVR output should be set to AUX IN (or AUX1, depending on the brand of your AVR). In the AVR Input Assign menu, the front panel AUX IN should be configured for ANALOG input (not HDMI).
3. On your laptop, before starting up REW, check the Windows audio settings for the laptop. Level should be 100%, Enhancements should be disabled, and Advance setting should be 48000Hz.
4. After loading REW, check the Preferences tab. Driver should be Java, Sample rate 48kHz, Output device Speaker, Input channel right, and Control input mixer/volume unchecked
With these settings, you should be able to open the Generator tool, select something like Sine wave, and play a tone that comes out your main speakers. If still no sound, my first thing I would do is swap out the cables between the laptop and the AVR. I just set this up myself, and had a bad cable, which resulted in no sound, obviously.
BTW, you posted some measurements back in July, so REW must have been working then. What changed between July and now?
