    I have a Sony DVD player connected to my Denon 2802 via digital coaxial, and a Sky+ decoder via optical and for ages it has been fine.

    Last night however, the amp stopped allowing me to change input source via the remote, and stayed stuck on "VCR 1" which is the Sky+ input. (when I say it won't let me change inputs, I mean via the little yellow buttons on the remote).

    Other functions of the remote still work, say volume, on/off etc.

    I can change the input via the amp itself, by turning the dial, but it also only seems to recognise one input at a time, i.e. I needed this morning to unplug the optical cable to get it to pick up the coaxial to the DVD player?!

    Does anyone know how to do a factory reset on the Denon 2802?

    Any suggestions? Duff remote or something more sinister?

    Cheers all.

    P.S. Immediately before this problem, I had a Playstation 2 connected to the amp via the self same optical cable as to the Sky+ box (just switched it over) - could this have caused some issue?

    Thanks all!

    The reset on my 1804 is hold speaker A & B buttons down together then press power on - all on the main unit. Don't know if this will work on the 2802 though.

    Cheers for this,

    How does the 1804 compare to the 1604 and 2803?

    Is mine is knackered I could upgrade, and the 1604 looks a good price, but does it lack anything major offered by the 1804 or 2803? I primarily use it for DVD, Sky+ and console connections?

    Thanks!

    I think the 1604 and 1804 are both worse than what you have, despite being newer models.

    To re-set the 2802, just do as follows:

    1. Switch off at unit's main power switch.
    2. Hold A & B buttons and turn power back on.
    3. Check entire display is flashing at approx. 1 second intervals, release the 2 buttons, microprocessor is now initialized.

    Hope this helps.

    Martin.

    Thanks all, it is sorted.

    There were two "problems"...

    (1) The remote control switch labelled AUDIO was not set to AVR/AVC (it is a slideable one and had somehow got moved) - this is why the yellow input source buttons were not registering on the remote

    (2) The optical cable was not firmly inserted into the amp

    Now all is well, thanks for all the replies.
