Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hello, my name is Rusty. Sorry to hear you're having trouble. It also looks like your question went into the TV category, which is why the AI kept mentioning TV. The thing with these receivers is, they are meant for surround sound listening with a TV. This is too much for what you are trying to do. All you really need is a 2 channel amp, which is easy to bypass the initial setup. With this receiver, you will need to use a TV to go through the setup. You'll need to connect the yellow monitor output to a TV, then it will allow you to set it up, disconnect the TV, and use it like you want to. Let me know if you have any questions.
