After one day of set up, i am encountering two issues. My set up is Dish ViP612-->Sony Google TV-->Toshiba LCD TV using HDMI Audio Google TV--> Sony AVR STR-KG700 using optical audio Issue 1: after succesful set up of sony AVR, GTV remote was able to power on/off and change volume for the AVR. Day 2, no changes made in the set up, I can not perform these functions. I tried rebooting all devices, removing and reconnecting sony avr in the AVR set up of GTV, it does not seem to work. Checked IR blaster connections, it looks fine. I am not sure how to check if IR blaster is working or not. Issue 2: Turning on/off BD/EXT power button does not simultaneously on/off TV/AVR and GTV. Instead each has to be done so separately. In fact, AVR can not be controlled at all per issue !. Is there a way to check if IR blaster is working?
