I've had THE SAME PROBLEM ! Neither official servise, nor internet could help me. The solution was problem with POWER CABLE! When tested it by TESTER it was ok, with no sign of a problem. I've tested everithing byt nothing could help me :) After all test I've noticed that when I've touched the power cable the problem occurred. After changing the power cable everithin WAS GREAT.
When using codes from a multi unit remote from say... the cable company, you have to check all the various codes for that brand. Some will turn it on but not off some will work the volume but not the menus. try manually inputing all the codes for that brand. Its a tedious process but the auto setup is not going to allow you to test all the functions like you should before commiting to one code. your remote should have come with a brochure containing all the codes for your particular type of unit and brand. Good Luck!
When this happens and you just see the input label try to press the power button on the front of the cable box and see if it brings the picture up. If this does produce the picture then it is a good possibility that something is interfering with the remote communicating with the cable box. I don't know if you have it contained in an entertainment center or how you have placed your equipment but if there is glass try to clean it and also wipe down the front of the cable box and make sure there is an unobstructed view of the front of the cable box. Good Luck.
There has to be another code and when you find it you will probably have to "lock" your remotes volume control to your audio device not the cable box (set-up that way from cable co) once you do that the cable box will be controlled from the remote(channels) and the audio will be controlled by your receiver from the same remote without even having to switch functions.. ask your cable company for a setup guide for your remote they will probably have a copy online.
It is 30376. The trick to discovering, is to turn the receiver off, first. Then it will power on when you input mute/select 30376. Then you can program the DirecTV remote to adjust volume (in AV2 mode only or in all modes). However, it will only power up the receiver. It has to be turned off with the original remote or at the receiver itself.
1, remote codes, check with sayno for code updates. Or consider a harmony remove last remote you will every buy.
2. Receiver does not convert video standards, need svideo cable.
3. popcorn hour player, no idea what that is , but like number 2. will need a seperate hdmi cable.
However, if the receiver and the player both have component, i would not hesitate to wore everything up component. In your application component video is better than hdmi. To many reasons to list. Good luck
