    I've been watching some Anime recently and since some of the DVDs are "quiet" I've been cranking my reciever up quite a bit to hear the dialogue. I noticed some faint sounds in quiet spots in the movie and that prompted me to turn my reciever up all the way with the DVD player off. When I crank it up, I can actually hear the audio from the TV audio channel (faintly). This is only noticeable when I turn it up within about "25" of the top dB value (+15 I think). So, while I won't hear any TV audio while watching most DVDs, it still concerns me. What's going on here ... and does this mean I have a bad reciever? Is the signal from the TV channel not completely switched "off" when I have it set to the DVD channel?

    Talk about coincidence: I was just about to post a similar observation I recently made with my Rotel pre-pro. When I finish watching a DVD and remove it from my player, I hear a faint sound from my mains which I determined was my TV (actually, the VCR, as I use it as a TV tuner).

    I spoke to my dealer and he said that this sort of bleed through is not uncommon with "mass-market" prepros. (My dealer sells mostly high-end gear.)

    I guess we just have to live with it.
