Receiver has an Ext. Decoder message on the face and is stuck on aux, won't respond to manual knob or remote control.

With no model number to go by I'll guess.

DE-select the External Decoder that you probably don't have attached to the 5.1 or 6.1 analog inputs. Crack the manual and find the control for it.
