2 problems no sound through H.D.M.I. and cannot get Receiver menu on T.V. screen.
i have two problems,and if anyone can help please bear with me cos i am very much a learner.The first is i cannot get my Receiver (Sony STR-DA1200ES) menu up on T.V. screen (SamsungLE40B550).I set up my speaker system three or four years ago with my old T.V. recently i noticed that my rear right hand Speaker was mute,i checked the wiring,that was ok,at this time i was in the process of installing new T.V.I decided to set Receiver back to factory settings and set it up with new T.V.but i cannot get the receiver menu up on screen.I have tried all different ways with T.V. Source button and the Receiver but no luck.My second problem is i cannot get sound through my H.D.M.I. leads from Blue Ray(Sony BDP-S360/S363) to Receiver and Receiver to T.V.I have spent a fortune on H.D.M.I. leads thinking that was the problem but to no avail.I have had to apply Optical lead to get sound.
