The cable box blinks "DUI" and the "FL and FR" lights on the 7005 display blink, but I don't get any sound.
I did update the firmware last week (BTW...where is the firmware version info stored?) and the system worked fine.
I could turn on the cable box and the AV7005 and listen to music, without turning th TV on!
But, my happiness was short lived, yesterday the same thing started happening again, no sound unless I turn the TV on.
Once the signal is locked in, I can turn off the TV and the sound continues...
I've tried the using the HDMI connection from the cable box and the optical out, with the same results.
Anyone seen this before? Is there a solution?
I was able to determine the cause of my problem. The 7005 is having HDMI issues with my Sharp TV. I have the TV's "Aquos Link" turned off, yet the 7004 will has trouble syncing to audio signal from my cable box (and maganvox DVD recorder),
if the TV is not on. My OPPO 93 doesn't have this problem.
My work around is to switch to HDMI 2 (which isn't connected to anything) when I want to listen to cable music. Other than that the 7005 has worked fine, it's quiet (no hum) and provides great sound.
I do wish it had a display dimmer....
Oh and one other question...Is there any way to display what version of firmware is installed?
