After a month of researching i finally decided on the SR5005 and at first glance it looked great. Did plenty or research in these forums and i appreciate everyones input however i cant get any sound from my reciever.
For now I currently have 2 speakers setup (Monitor Audio Radius 270): FR and FL as i await my 4 other speakers to arrive.
Things ive done:
Ran the tone tester and it did detect both speakers with a loud hiss?
Ran the Audessy config and it detected both speakers and also output the pulsating sound while the test ran for each speaker
Tried each HDMI connection with both my comcast cable box and Bluray player. so basically swapped them into all 4 HDMI slots and no success.
Ran a optical cable straight from the cable box to the reciever optical slot and nothing...
Tried a analog connection for the blurray player without any success
Tried my iphone with the usb front port connection and no audio
I mean it shouldnt be this hard right? am i missing something here?
One thing i do notice on the front panel is the DIG. sign on the left side, is this normal? i can switch it to analog and 7.1 etc.. but just wondering if that should be on when HDMI is connected?
I also have the HDMI set to Audio out and HDMI control ON so it does passthrough audio when the reciever is in standby mode and i get audio from my TV.
Im totally lost and any help will be appreciated.
