Help please! I have a home theater system with an anthem MRX 710 receiver, apple tv box 4K , sonos, blue ray and samsung HDTV with paradigm speakers for music...all run via comcast box. My video and audio are shot and I can't play any CD, Sonos TV or via the apple box. I assume my 10 year old receiver is broken even though the display lights up. I'd like to replace it with the MRx 740 BUT don't know if when I replace it if i have to reprogram my universal remote used to control everything or can I just replace it and play it as if nothing happened? Thanks Gary

see subject line , thanks
Typically, stereo receivers have nothing to very little in speaker configuration. Some have a subwoofer crossover. Some have an impedance switch. Many don't have either. So it would be helpful if you clarified your question a bit.

Welcome to the forum, but you really should start your own thread for such a request and not piggyback onto someone else's totally different/irrelevant thread...

I suspect he/she(?) didn't mean "stereo" very literally... but who knows I suppose...

Probably shoulda bothered to elaborate/clarify a bit more in the original post and not merely say "see subject line", especially when that "subject line" seems rather confused, (over)loaded and not well-though-out...

It should work, but it won't have all the features/buttons of the new receiver.
