I have seen this issue being reported with other units like STR DN-1060 etc, and I am now experiencing this issue with my STR DN-1080. The Home button on the remote stopped working, and unfortunately I tried a factory reset as suggested by the user guide. Now I am stuck in the dreaded "CLEARING" loop on the display and none of the controls - remote or direct buttons work. I called support and tried the usual things - power off, remove power etc, but nothing works. The unit is out of warranty. Has anyone had success with this issue? I am willing to experiment, so if anyone has access to their service manual etc, I am happy to take a look.
