STR DN 1050 menus unreadable

Has anyone had issues with the str dn1050 Gui menus displaying in a solid color (rd)  and are therefore unreadable?

Re: STR DN 1050 menus unreadable

I'm experiencing something similar.  Hooked up my new MacBook Pro to the "game" hdmi port.  That worked fine, but when I disconnected and switched to sat/catv, the receiver started acting funny.  The picture would display intermittently and the sound would drop out.  The unit's display would indicate that it suddenly detected a Dolby B signal.  No menu would come up.  Finally I performed a factory reset by holding in the power button for 5 seconds.  It almost immediately said "cleared", though the instructions say this should take up to 5 minutes.  The "Easy Setup" screen now shows, but none of the settings show properly.  All I see is a mixture of dots and blocks.  Have tried the factory setup a few more times, but does not help.  Would like to update the software, but without a functioning menu this does not seem possible.  I'm pretty much stuck.
