Mine does it as well. I just go back and forth from video to cd to something else and after a minute it works fine.

SOURCE: seems to be stuck on

Mine is having a similar problem. After it has lost power or been unplugged it will always revert to decoder 4. It seems to need to warm up because after waiting about 10 minutes it finally stays where I tell it to.

External Input Mode (for VCR features) To receive the signal from an external input (decoder, satellite receiver, video camera, another VCR etc.), connect to the AV2 (DECODER) socket, and enter "002" with numerical key pads to appear "AV2" on the TV screen.If you use the AV1 (TV) socket, enter "001" with numerical key pads to appear "AV1" on the TV screen. If you use the front AUDIO/VIDEO input jacks, enter "003" with numerical key pads to appear "AV3" on the TV screen.

I want to upgrade from my VCR but no one will or cannot tell me what to purchase.I record one Program on my VCR:-Speedway from Europe at 3am in the morning, and that is from "Austar". What I...

Hi, well these days almost any brand is as good as another, and often i find these days, that when i open up, similar units, i find a inside made by the same or similar quality manufacturer, i guess what i am trying to say is this, choose whatever one/brand YOU like, BUT get a Warranty, NOT an extended warranty, just a normal one... This way in the unlikely event that it faults inside the warranty period, at the least you will be covered. Get a unit that there has been many sold, usually the one that out-sells the most, does so for a good reason, so go along to your shop of choice, and simply ask, in the range you want/like, "What is your most popular selling model?", and if you like the look of it... buy it. It really is that simple. You may also want to re-think about getting a "Combo" DVD/VCR, while "Combos" are good, they are in my experience, likely to fault "more" than single dedicated units, personally myself, i would get a "dedicated" unit, one for the VCR, and the other for the DVD, a good DVD player can be had for as little $25.00 I have got one for that price myself, and it's wonderful, and easily as good as many "other" more expensive units. With the VCR, just do as I suggested, and just get the best selling one, with a warranty on both and should be well served for many years to come.
PS: You also may want to think about getting a satellite or freeview decoder and recorder, that way you could record from the TV programs etc, straight into the "Decoder" just like a Sky Decoder etc. that you may have seen on the Tv?

My RX-V665 receiver lost its sound for no apparent reason while we were watching a show. It was in HDMI mode and has the message "Decoder Off". The sound works with a DVD and a CD, just not...

It's telling you the digital decoder is now "off" and will treat everything like 5.1. THAT is a selection you choose, not a status that spontaneously appears. Perhaps someone unknowingly touched the remote while playing.

Get the manual out and read up on DECODER. Page 61 (Troubleshooting: NO SOUND) suggests "A proper audio decoder is not selected". Try AUTO.

Or, track the digital source of your TV audio back to make sure it still works.

I have a kenwood vr-707 it gets surround sound on dvd/vcr but I can't get surround sound on just tv.

Well you have a built in decoder/surround processor that will detect a signal with the surround sound info(dvd/sat.receiver/cable converter etc.) and will then process it to the different speakers on your system. In the absence of that signal it will process it as standard stereo sound(two front speakers). You may want to look in your receiver functions/menu for simulated surround.
Hope this will help.

DVD Decoder

Can you run any DVD on your laptop?  If not, my first thought is that you don't have DVD software loaded.  If your laptop indeed has a DVD drive you should have received software with it to play DVDs, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD.
