Why doesn't the menu/guide come up now that I have an HD/DVR receiver?

If you are using an HD/DVR receiver on a standard TV and are using non-HD connections (coax, RCA or S-video), the menu and guide may not work without changing some settings on the receiver.

To do this, please follow the steps below:

  • Step 1: Press Power to turn off the receiver
  • Step 2: Press Menu/Settings to bring up the User Settings screen
  • Step 3: Change the DVI/YPbPr Output field to 480i
  • Step 4: Turn off the receiver to save the settings

Note: If the User Settings screen won't come up on your TV either, it will appear on the display on the front of the receiver, press the down arrow to get YPP Out and then the right arrow until you see 480i.
