I have a problem with my RX-V667 receiver.
When there is no active input signal the display says "DECODER OFF".

Now for the problem part.
When I turn on the tv, the receives keeps displaying the same message and so there is no sound.
No matter what I do the receiver does not enable the decoder.
I have to turn the receiver off and on again to get sound (which changes nothing to the tv).
This also happens when I have no (valid) sound input for a few minutes (for example pause a blu-ray or dvd).
When I resume the movie (which had sound played earlier over hdmi) the decoder stays off.
Then I need to turn the receiver off and on again to get the sound back.
Occasionally the reciever switched the display message to "Dolby Digital" but then there is also no sound.
The part of the display which shows the speaker configuration stays dark.
Then I have to turn the receiver off and on to get the sound back.
Is there a way to resolve this problem?
