Are you saying that the red circle with a line through it in the upper-left corner of the screen is simply on, all the time, when you have a CD inserted? Or only when you push a button on the remote (and if so, which button do you push that makes that circle/line appear)?
I run my 103 through my Yamaha AVR, with an HDMI connection used for video. I happen to have a 2-channel stereo speaker system (not high-end, but perfectly fine) and I prefer to have multi-channel audio (from discs or streaming) down-mixed to stereo in the 103 and then fed through my DBX 2-channel EQ for tone control, and then fed to the Yamaha AVR via 2-channel stereo analog input AUDIO1 for 2-channel stereo output to the speakers. So my "speaker configuration" in the 103 is to down-mix to 2-channel stereo, and then I feed the L/R analog preamp outputs of the 103 to the L/R analog inputs of my DBX EQ, etc.
Most importantly, the Yamaha AVR "input setup" for that HDMI input being received from the HDMI output of my 103 (for video only) is set to pick up its audio from that AUDIO1 L/R analog input of the AVR. That's the complete audio path, starting from the 103 going analog into the DBX EQ and then analog into the AVR. Of course I have to configure "input setup" for HDMI1 to indicate that audio is not also coming in via HDMI1 but instead is coming from the analog AUDIO1 input.
Although I don't do it, in theory I could actually feed the 2-channel audio from 2-channel CD source from the 103 through the same HDMI output that carries video (for other audio-video sources) and into the AVR, since it's only 2-channel audio and doesn't need any down-mixing to stereo by the 103 as multi-channel audio source would need to be. So in theory, I could change the AVR setup to specify HDMI1 for audio input (instead of AUDIO1), and this would also produce proper sound, if only for 2-channel audio CD source. However I would lose the ability to get tone control via my DBX EQ, since that is an analog device. Preferring to have tone control functionality for any source from the 103 (audio-video or just audio) I have opted for this audio via analog path rather than audio via HDMI.
Now when I'm playing a CD using this setup, everything works fine. I have sound. I can produce that "red circle with a line through it" in the upper-left corner if I push say the AUDIO button on the remote. That symbol indicates a non-functioning or inappropriate button, for whatever you're trying to do at the time. It's just not a button whose functionality is supported at the moment you press it (although it might be relevant in some other situation). It's not the "mute" symbol. It's the "inappropriate button pushed" symbol.
So again I ask, is that symbol just always on? Or only when you push some button on the remote, e.g. PLAY, or some other button?
Are you sure your AVR is properly configured for its audio input? Again, if you have HDMI going from 103 to AVR for video, you can also deliver audio from 103 to AVR on that same HDMI cable. Or, you can use an analog path instead if you have some reason to (as I do). But either way, the AVR must be configured to have its audio setup configured correctly corresponding to that HDMI video input. You're sure you've got that right? Do you have sound from 103 via your AVR for multi-channel BDMV or DVD discs, or streaming? Are you only not getting sound for audio CD?
Have you made any progress working on this yourself?
