Hey folks, One thing that has annoyed me since day one with this receiver is that you have to get your butt off the couch and go to the receiver to toggle on or off the multi-channel input mode (for SACD/DVD-A, for example). This wasn't the end of the world when I still had a single-disc dvd-player, but now that I've got a universal dvd changer (yamaha dvdc750 dvd-a/sacd player), it's annoying to not be able to load up a mixture of discs and be able to switch into the appropriate multi-ch input mode (on for dvd-a/sacd, off for cds/dvd-v) via remote. Tonight it occured to me how to get around this problem. You can use an unused input mode on the reciever. For me, I have nothing connected to my CD input (use the dvdplayer for both). So, I clicked the CD button on the remote, walked up to the receiver, and turned on multi-ch input. So now when I put the reciever in CD mode, I get multi-ch input. When I switch the receiver to DVD mode, I get the regular didigtal link. I've finally figured out how to toggle multi-ch in from remote! Hopefully this makes sense to you and might be helpful to someone out there. You can use any un-used input button such as DVR/VCR, CR-R/TAPE, whatever you have open. Cheers, Scott.
