Question about Kenwood VR-405 Receiver
The Reciever was working perfectly and was hooked to my xbox 360 via optical and all was well.
One day I disconnected the optical connection from my 360 and connected it to a Media Player (Western Digital Media Player), and the reciever just crashed! All the lights on the reciever stays on (LCD and LED's). All the buttons are non-responsive, including the standby button. Even if I take it out from the mains and switch it back on, I still get the same result.
Can anybody advise me what to do, or is my reciever now a large brick?
Thanks in advance.
there isn't such a button on the reciever... at least if there is, it's not obvious. Where would such a button be. There is a small red LED light that comes on when dolby digital is working. That's about it. There is no mention of THX anywhere on the receiver

I think the movers mishandle your unit that why it happen like that.It needs to reheat or resolder because the solder holding the spare parts are loose or crack,so when it resolder already performance will come again .That all Txjay , just for now.

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the insight. I may have figured this out on my own eventually but this definitely got me situated much much faster. "
You didn't list your receiver model number, but here's a generic picture of how you would connect an indoor FM dipole antenna to a Kenwood receiver. These antennas should be available at most home improvement stores or from Radio Shack. They cost around $10.00, maybe less.
Depending on your model, you may have use some adapters. Ask the store staff for help.
