I recently bought the STR-DH820, great spec for a great price. I previously had an STR-DB900 hooked up to an SA-FT3H 6.1 speaker system. Lovely set-up with a slim line amp and very slim wall-mounted speakers. Unfortunately the power supply died on the amp so took the opportunity to upgrade to an amp with HDMI switching.
Everything runs fine with these speakers attached, except the subwoofer refuses to go into standby when the amp is put in standby. I don't believe I have an issue with zones or with the sub, since it used to go into standby easily with the previous amp. It's almost as if the amp continues to send a signal when in standby mode. I've tried both sub sockets.
Any suggestions? The supplier suggested turning down the output to the sub and increasing the sub output, but as expected that had no effect, since the problem is not when it's on, it's when it's off.
Thanks for any clues.
this may be the answer to terrorbyte's issue. in my 830 manual it says when in AFD mode theQuote:

I should say everything's connected via HDMI and I listen to the TV on AFD currently.

Hello all, recently purchased this receiver. Very happy with it just got a question - can you save the sound field used for each input? For example when i switch between 'TV' to 'GAME' and back to 'TV' the sound field will have changed back to HD DCS when I want it set to AFD auto for this input and keep it like that without it reverting back when I switch between inputs!

Hi not sure if anyone could help with this problem - STRDH820 connected to a playstation via HDMI and a Wii and Sky (not Sky HD) box both via component. Picture via the PS3 and Wii are fine, but the picture from the Sky box will be ok for a while and then the screen goes blank for a few seconds. The sound continues while the picture is blank and the picture always returns after a few seconds. This problem occurs at random times i.e it doesnt happen every 20 minutes, or when I have changed channel on Sky - this evening I was watching a film for about 1/2 hour before the screen went blank, then it did it again a few minutes later. Any suggestions would be welcomely received - thanks

If I go with one of the movie preset options, I can get sound from all 5 speakers I have, but as soon as I try to use the amp for my music discs (DVD-A, SACD both from the same player and Blu-Ray from a separate player). the problems remain as in my previous post.
I press AFD and have the amp set for 'Speakers A & B'
I get no sound from the SACD discs, front L & R only from the DVD-A, both using a Denon player via HDMI. The Denon indicates it is outputting 5 channels for both type of disc.
On Blu-Ray disvs I get front R & L only from a separate Blu-Ray player.
Trying to find a solution to this is ageing me very quickly.
Any further help/advice/guidance would be hugely appreciated.
