I'm looking to replace my old Kenwood VR-309, which I was happy with. Problem is, I just got an HDTV cable box and if I hook up the digital coax out of it into my receiver, it only outputs audio on channels that are broadcasting DD. Analog cable channels only output via the analog RCA jacks. The VR-309 does not automatically switch to the analog input when the AC3 signal goes away. The only way to hear the analog stuff is to physically walk up to the receiver and change the input mode from digital to analog. This is annoying, and apparently (according to Scientific Atlanta's FAQ) there are receivers that will play the Dolby Digital when its present and automatically fall back to analog when it's not. So, I need an inexpensive, low-end receiver that fits the above bill. Budget is in the $500-600 Canadian range (US$300-350 range). 6.1 would be nice, but not essential. I'd like to stick with something I can get at a Canadian brick&mortar location rather than ordering online. I'm looking at the Yamaha HTR5650B right now. Any advice would be appreciated.
