I do have it connected HDMI and disconnected it but it still does not turn on. The TV isn't showing anything unusual. I tried the FAQ page at Yamaha but it is having problems today and doesn't display. I may need to go ahead and set the remote up for the components.Are you connected to the TV using HDMI? Try disconnecting the HDMI and try again. if it turns on then go into the TVs menu and make sure you dont have any sort of HDMI communication turned on that sends a signal to the receiver to tutn it on. There also may be a setting in the receiver that does the same.
By the way Welcome to the Shack!
