The setup screen doesn't even come thru. I didn't know that compatibility issues like this existed. How would I know in advance if another receiver would be compatible?
Set it up via component to your TV and check the settings but first:
On the XA2 there is a "mode switch," that you have to slide over to "2", this can be checked by opening (on the XA2) the little swing down door in the front. See if yours has the same thing. You can't switch modes with the power on. If it's not in mode 2 that is your problem! If the A35 has the same "Mode," then I'm betting that is your problem.
You aren't getting an error message so the other thing is the Cable. The A35 is Deep Color capable and needs an HDMI 1.3 cable.
