    Well ive received my SR7400 from Peter Tyson.

    But I cant get a squeak out of it.

    I have hooked up my front speakers - plugged the coaxial digital from my PC into Dig out 4 and set the DVD to use it. I have also linked up my dvd player with analogue leads and again nada.

    On the little display - it will not budge from showing 7.1 setup - direct and analog. Even when you press a different sourse DVD. CD, TV etcit flashes and the goes back to the above - but doesnt show which input is being used.

    Also not all of the menu options seem to be there - for instance on the surround option - nothing at all comes up just an option to return to main menu.

    Please help - is it me or the amp.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Hi Sneaky

    I have one of these amps, very nice they are too.
    Have you tried pressing the "7.1 INPUT" button on the front of the amp, sounds like you have engaged the 7.1 MULTI CHANNEL input. Pressing the other source buttons wont do anything except make the display flash until you switch off that input.
    That should give you back the full menu options and access to the other sources. Make sure you have the speakers A or B engaged.

    You'll love the amp when you get it going.

    Cheers

    Cheers ASH,

    Thats exactly what was wrong.

    I eventually found a source button on the remote which opened up the options.

    Thanks
