i just got a marantz SR4400 and am having some problems. i was in the process of setting up my reciever going through the menus when all of a sudden my remote stopped working, or atleast part of it. the menu button no longer works and is causing a problem because i had to reset my reciever and can no longer redo my setup. the setup/t.tone button doesnt work either so i cannot adjust channel volumes either. anyone have any ideas what has gone wrong or any ways to setup things without the remote? could it be my reciever has gone bonkers? and how much do new remotes go for? also i am having problems getting over 2 channels in my digital signal. i am trying to use my sound card to get the full ht experience. i am using a SB audigy2 NX. Should i just get the xitel hifi pro?
I just bought marantz SR5500 last week. What a great receiver. But i faced the same problem with u when i connected it with my whole system. After that everything settle. One thing u need u remeber, everytime u want to doing something with your system, u need to enter button 'amp'on your remote. then everything should be ok.
last thing i need to take care of is the digital signal. when i use a digital signal, coax, i only get the front channels to light up. is there something i need to do with the sound card to make it send a surround sound signal or is there a better product that i can use?
Chris & Nick,
LOL, I had the EXACT same fright when I first hooked up my SR5400! Yeah, I don't think the Marantz manual covers this little quirk too well...it's a very annoying quirk actually, one I never encountered on any other remote in my life.
Hey all, I had the very same problem with my SR4400 when I 1st installed it. That's solved, but now, it' something else. I'm using an analogue connection with my DVD player (haven't bought the digital coax yet). It sounds super in stereo mode. I even set up the dolby/DTS/CS2 etc, but nothing happens when I turn the big surround knob. It remains on stereo. It works with the remote but not manually. Help please!!
