Hi. There are a ton of pages here, and I've glanced at a few but haven't seen my problem so I apologize in advance if it has been asked.
I have an AVR-590 that I purchased a few years ago. It was working fine until last night when I was trying to make an old Mac Mini into a Media Server. I successfully mapped Optical Audio 1 to HDMI 2 and had everything working.
Then suddenly, no audio. I thought there was a problem w/ my Mini, so changed to HDMI-1 (DirecTV). Nothing. I then went to HDMI-3 (my Blu-ray player), and again, nothing. I could get absolutely no audio from any source.
So, assuming I messed something up, I decided to reset to Factory Settings (e.g., p57). I did that, but not only did it not solve the problem, but some of my menu items went away. Specifically, the main menu now has:
- Manual Setup
- Input Setup
Item #3 is missing. According to the owner's manual, it should say 'Auto Setup', but there is no option 3. When I go into sub-menus, they are also missing items (one of them has only 2., 5., 6.).
I unplugged it & left it overnight (as some others here have done), but still no sound & still a messed up menu.
So, short of taking it to a service center (closest is Baltimore, MD as Crutchfield only services units they sell, and I bought it at Best Buy), any suggestions?
