STR-DA1ES Says "UNLOCK" when change channels

My STR-DA1ES High Def. Receiver says "UNLOCK" when I change the channels on it. The words goes away after about 3 to 5 seconds and doesn't seem to interfere with anything except my curiousity. It seems to do that every time I change channels on the receiver. Please advise if you know what is going on as I am lost on this one too. Thanks in advance.
Sorry about the double post with the wrong equipment listed.

STR-DA1ES Displays "Unlock" when change channels

My STR-DA1ES Sony High Def. receiver displays on it "UNLOCK" each time I change the channels..It doesn't seem to affect it but I can't figure out how to turn the unlock off. It dissappears after about 3 seconds or so.
Thank you in advance.

Bill, both my Sony recievers do this when the source selector is set to Auto. IIRC, there's a button that toggles the source on the right face of the receiver. Personally, I leave mine on Auto and ignore the UNLOCK message. To me, that just means the receiver is doing it's thing (switching between DTS, 5.5, PCM, etc.)

Hope that helps,
