Question Sony STR-DH500 DVD HDMI input stuck on coax

I bought the DH500 used, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but this thing's DVD input is set to use coax, despite me plugging in to the HDMI port. Is there any way to get it to detect the HDMI input instead of it trying to force Coax?

For the record, I'm not using it for a DVD player, but for a gaming console (my Switch dock), so I don't know if that is an issue either?

Why are you trying to use the DVD Input then? Just use one of the HDMI inputs in the selection. On many TVs you can rename connections, but even then, if the selection called DVD Input is set for coax, just don't use that option.

Basically, here's the problem. I have my computer, my PS4, and my Switch. The back of the receiver has 3 HDMI in, and 1 out. The 3 are labeled SAT (satellite, it works), BD (Blu-Ray, it works), and DVD (it doesn't work). The input selector only shows two inputs that use HDMI (BD and SAT) in the upper left corner of the display window.
