I am so sad. I was watching the Olympics, shut down the HT system to take the dogs for a walk, came home 45 minutes later and turned it back on and . . . I should say tried to turn it back on. The Panny AVR's front-panel display will only briefly flash, won't power on. I doubt there was a power surge while I was gone, everything else is OK, and it's all plugged into a good surge suppressor. [One other clue. When I turned it off its input was set to cable/DVR. When I came home, its input had somehow changed to my Roku/Netflix box--that's what I'm seeing on my monitor, via the HDMI pass-thru, which is apparently still working.] I've tried unplugging it from the AC to reset, no joy. Anything else I can try? I'm still in my warranty period until June, but will Panasonic actually repair this out-of-production baby for me? Oh man, am I bummed.
