When I turn on my reciever it automatically displays decoder on it and will not let me watch TV until it has sat on the decoder for like 10-15 min. I will push the Video 2 button for TV over and over and it will keep going back to a blue screen on my TV and display DECODER on the receiver. Any helps?

AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.
1) How is it with FM? That -35dB may be normal for this receiver. My old Pioneer is exactly like yours, inaudible at -50, whisper-quiet at -35 on all sources. But it will still crush my skull if I want it to.
2) Page 72. Press STRAIGHT to toggle out of Straight decoding mode.
It is always helpful if you give model and make of the equipment involved. We can be more specific and accurate that way. It si a very straight forward connection and you need two HDMI cables. 1) Connect the Satellite Box's HDMI out to the Receivers HDMI In ( any one of the sockets labeled TV/SAT or Video AUX etc ). 2) Connect the Receiver's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI In. Every thing will work fine except if you switch off the power of some receivers the TV will stop getting HDMI signals ( ie no sound or video if Receiver is Off )
The other way of connecting is to connect the SAT BOX's HDMI cable directly to the TV's HDMI In and if your SAT BOX has a digital Audio out ( Optical or Coaxial ) connect that to the Receivers Digital In. This way you will need only one HDMI cable and one Optic fiber or Coaxial cable. And the advantage is even if the Receiver is Off you can watch video and hear its sound through the TV.
This is clearly a manufacture defect right off the assembly line. From your description you have a serious intermittent problem with the AVR unit when it comes to selection and other choices and it will only get worse, I strongly suggest you return the item in favor of another.
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.
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.
To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.
You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
