    Hi,

    I have a Sony STR-DB790 receiver, which i am very happy with. However recently the remote control receiver has stopped working on the machine. I know the remote still works because it operates my tv and dvd player, and i also tryed to operate the receiver using my wifes pda remote control software, but to no avail.

    Has anyone else ever encountered this problem and is it something that can be fixed easily?

    Thanks

    Sam

    I have a 1080 ,i don't know if the remote is the same but i selected av system2 and the remote would not work the amp selecting av1 solved the problem.It would be better to do what ben1 did and reset the remote.

    Hi bob1 and ben1,

    Fantastic, thanks. A good case of RTFM (Read The F###ing Manual) ;-), i can finally enjoy the joys of surround sound from the comfort of my sofa again

    Thanks
