Important information regarding the HDMI
There are cases where you may not be able to route HDMI
signals through this receiver (this depends on the HDMI
equipped component you are connecting-check with the
manufacturer for HDMI compatibility information).
If you aren't receiving HDMI signals properly through this
receiver (from your component), please try the following
configuration when connecting up.
Connect your HDMI-equipped component directly to the
display using an HDMI cable. Then use the most convenient
connection (digital is recommended) for sending audio to the
receiver. See the operating instructions for more on audio
connections. Set the display volume to minimum when using
this configuration.
Depending on the component, audio output may be limited
to the number of channels available from the connected
display unit (for example audio output is reduced to 2
channels for a monitor with stereo audio limitations).
If you want to switch the input source, you'll have to switch
functions on both the receiver and your display unit.
Since the sound is muted on the display when using the
HDMI connection, you must adjust the volume on the
display every time you switch input sources.

Use this procedure to reset all the receiver's settings to the
factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.
If the ARC function is ON, you may not be able to initialize
the unit. If this happens, turn OFF the ARC function or turn
OFF all the connected device before turning OFF
