Hi guys :
for the owners of marantz SR 7200 or Sr 7300 , by connecting
a DVD audio player thru the analog inputs, to what input do you set the receiver to : will it be multichannel or do you keep it
in auto mode ?
Using multichannel input will require going to the menu of the receiver every time and setting the multichannel to on.
Then for watching movies it should be set to off. A digital connection is used as well from the dvd player to the receiver.
By the way I am using a CP-72 as a DVD-A and DVD-V.
Your help is highly appreciated.

Sorry, but you're wrong on almost every count!

"Auto" mode is not for sensing an input, but rather for a surround processor mode (e.g. Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro-Logic, etc.)

For connecting DVD-A or SACD, you would use the 6.1-ch input (7.1 on the 7300), [even though DVD-A and SACD are only 5.1, Marantz has the extra input channel].

You do not need to go into the on screen display in order to activate or de-activate the input, there is a switch on the front of the receiver and a button on the remote for this.
