disconnect the BD player from the Denon, now try it. Does it still seek the BD player or does it turn to satellite on the first try?
When we push the Satellite button on our Genesis Remote (this only happens when we start the entire HomeTheater system), the Denon receiver turns on, shows Sat/Cable, and then switches to the BluRay player. We have to manually click over to Satellite -- sometimes twice -- to get the system to go to Satellite mode.
Is our problem with the remote, or the receiver?
