I have my NSX-40GT1 attached to my Sony receiver with a digital optical cable and it works fine. However, I cannot get the remote control on the Sony NSX-40GT1 to control the receiver (volume up/down etc). I have gone through the set up options and tried all 5 codes. The receiver flashes when the blaster sends the code but does not perform the function. It's not a problem with the blaster as it controls the CD player fine (ironically, not Sony). The remote that came with the receiver works fine so it's not the receiver. It's just the wrong code? I called Sony technical support and spent 20 minutes on the phone with them. Very frustrating call. I will spare you the details but the bottom line was the supervisor said that the receiver will not work unless it is connected via HDMI cable to the TV (doesn't make sense to me?) but that my specific receiver isn't new enough for the HDMI to work with the TV. Huh? All I want to do is program my remote... Any suggestions? Thanks.
