Your bad cable issue.... Did you verify that the control port in the 
back of your receiver is set to the correct mode? Mine was set to some 
funky device control mode and I had to change the setting in one of the 
menus in the receiver. This was a few years ago and I am sure it was a 
different model than you have now but you may need to change something 
in the menus to enable the port in the back.

Good luck,
