Also, the HDMI light on the AVR display doesn't come on anymore. And my Squeezebox Touch, which is connected via digital coax, shows the correct audio format but the receiver is not outputting audio.
The same thing just happened to me. Cleared it by power-cycling the receiver. Whatever became of yours? Anyone else have this problem?
BTW, 1-2 years ago, I did apply the firmware update that solves the occasional refusal to power on via remote, and it's been problem-free up 'til now.ETA:
The problem is caused by firing a remote macro to turn the AVR and my new TV (Panasonic TC-P50ST60) on at the same time. This was never a problem with my Sony TVs. Both Kuro and Viera Link (HDMI-CEC) are disabled. I use discrete remote codes that power the AVR on to specific inputs (very nice hidden feature BTW), and the problem occurs whether or not the input uses HDMI or not. For example, my HTPC is connected directly to the TV via HDMI, and I use S/PDIF from the motherboard to the AVR for audio, and it happens. It also happens with my Bluray player, which is connected to the AVR via HDMI. In each case, there is no audio or video output from any AVR input (including the radio) until the AVR power is cycled with the TV left on or off.
The problem is solved by disconnecting the AVR->TV HDMI connection. Sigh. Anyone ever deal with something like this? My remote doesn't support delays, and I'm not switching remotes. I guess I could try reversing the order of power-on in the macros; right now, the TV is turning on first. I tried the AVR on both the TV's ARC and non-ARC inputs, and that didn't help. (I know the AVR doesn't support ARC.)ETA 2:
No joy on reversing the power-on order in the remote macro. Also, turning the TV off and on doesn't help. The AVR must be power-cycled to clear the bad state.ETA 3:
Adding a couple of redundant TV power-on commands before turning the AVR on introduced enough delay to avoid the problem. However, the TV simply doesn't accept input commands quickly enough after power on for the macros to work like they did with my old Sonys. Unlike the AVR, the new TV lacks discrete commands that power on to a specific input, so that problem is looking unsolvable, as I'm not going to be plugging my HTPC into the AVR, and I will continue to need to use multiple TV inputs.Edited by sawfish - 4/7/13 at 9:17pm
