Well I guess I will start it. I allready posted this on AVS, but we all know where the real home of the AVM-XX is!! I sold my AVM-20 thinking that I would get a D1, but I balked at it. Just too much money and I can mod the 30 later. (after reading the AVM20 vs D1 thread). The Blue is a definate improvement. The 4 component inputs are great as well. The switching of inputs is very fast. It does have PLIIx on it and came with an insert that stated: "Dolby Pro Logic IIx is not available with the inital release of the AVM 30. It will be available as an easy on-line software upgrade on our website in the near future, at no charge. We will notify all Anthem Dealers when Pro Logic IIx becomes available." As for sound, I have not really listened to it yet so I cannot comment. I got a good deal on the AVM-30 so it was not that much to change to the AVM-30 so I am pretty happy with the move. Now to wait for the mod. Then I noticed something. The N is missing from the word MAIN. It looks like the right most col is missing from both lines. So I went into the display menu and checked my settings. This is where it gets interesting... According to the manual, there should be selections a-m. I am missing i,j, and k. The setting for the Hi, med, and low number settings. And the best part, if I try to scoll down after the last setting, it should go back to the top...it does not...all I get is alot of noise and clicking and poping from the speakers and the display shows garbage and then it shuts off. If I power it on via the power button, it comes on, but does not work right. If I shut it off via the back (real power off) and then turn it back on, it resets itself. Also I changed the setting front wake up to HI and it seems to fixed the front display issue. I guess a call to Nick and Frank is due tomorrow. I will keep everyone up to date on if this is a software glitch or not. BTW, the software does say version 2.13 (not letter following it).
