Ok, ok, I'm know I'm probably gonna get a ton of flaming over this from the audiophiles, but here goes: I was listening to the radio on my old stereo system this morning and when an especially obnoxious commercial came on and I was wishing my remote had a mute button instead of waiting for the volume to decrease. Having not checked out newer remotes for AV Pre-pros or Receivers - I was wondering if they have them or not? If not, is it because the sudden cut-out would cause problems with internal circuitry or speakers? I would imagine that there must be some ability to do this when viewing TV through the AVR, but what about regular old audio?? As the Torch used to say . . . "Flame On!"
