Thanks, I wondered about the steps, but the manual doesn't really give you specifics on that. Only thing I read was something about making sure the tv is on first before the receiver.
As for the volume thing, mine does display, don't know why as the manual speaks nothing of this, but it does. Perhaps its a feature of my tv that allows that?? Anyway, the number is off from the receiver, but that doesn't concern me.
Really the thing I want fixed the most is the TV/SAT deal. I like the fact that it will all turn off with one button, as my wife and kids regularly forget to shut off the receiver when watching tv. So would like to try and solve the reason behind it rather than shut it off.
Thanks again for the info, any other thoughts are welcome!
