When I boot up my receiver it defaults to "Decoder" and when I change it to any other input, the receiver changes back to "Decoder"
After a while, and this time is getting longer, it allows the input to change.
I took it to the store where I purchased it and they told me it was to expensive to fix. I'm still not convinced that they even know what the problem was.
Does anyone know what the problem is?
The other question is, can it be fixed for a resonable price?

Re: After boot up, My receiver defaults to "Decoder"
Maybe the input select IC is going, but I'd put my money on a bet that it is the main microprocessor going crazy. Get a real repair guy to look at it. It sounds like an expensive repair is in your future. If luck is in your stars then you may just have a power supply voltage that is taking a long time to get up to proper value for what ever reason and fixing that might fix your problem. Either way a trip to the shop is in order. Good luck.

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.
buy a new television with a digital decoder / receiver
or buy a digital tv decoder that outputs AV on RCA cables whatever the tv has. may be able to tune tv into a particular channel analogue on some decoders. Check decoder and TV input sources. May not have AV input if really old TV.
Are you using any kind of Decoder or Set Top box to receive your TV signal? If so you can connect the RCA OUTPUT from your cable or satellite decoder, to the Yamaha inputs. See the picture I have attached for you. Then when you want to hear the sound from there, select DTV /CBL input on your remote control of the Yamaha receiver.
Or you can locate the SOUND or AV OUTPUT (Red and white RCA connection) at the back of you TV, and connect the cables from there to your Yamaha receiver.
You require a satelite decoder/receiver for your dish and an aerial for your TV. The choice is yours. Plug a satelite receiver, for freesat, into the A/V input on the TV or have an aerial installed for freeview.
I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.
Sounds like the processor has locked up in the unit. Try powering it right down from the wall socket for a day to reset, and then retry operation. If that does not work, leave it disconnected for about 10 days to erase backup memory completely and then try again. Good luck. Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" rating if this works. If it doesn't, get back to me in here and we can talk more about it.
