I just bought and set up a SC-BTT770 system and have several questions.
1. The DVD drive is noisy, makes a high pitched whine while spinning. I assume there should be NO noise from the drive. Is this typical?
2. I simply want to use the system with my Visio LCD TV that only has an antenna, no cable box or input to HDMI 1 or 2. So I connect the optical audio cable (I do not have hdmi - ARC capability) and switch the 770 to EXT in - DIGITAL IN. That works, I get the TV's sound through the 770 system. HOWEVER, every time the 770 goes to sleep or I power it off, I have to go through resetting it to DIGITAL IN because it reverts to HDMI1 on the home screen. Is there any way to make the 770 save it's settings?
3. When watching a DVD, there are no on screen indicators for volume, surround settings or anything else other than the DVD menu when you pop it up. Is there no way to get on screen display of settings without exiting the DVD mode and reverting to the HOME screen?
4. When I listen to Pandora, the system reverts to stereo with a bland sound, however if you select SURROUND on the remote, then choose MANUAL then choose DOLBY PRO LOGIC II MUSIC, You get a really great sounding surround sound from all 5 speakers. Usually the vocal will be up front and the band all around you, sounds great. HOWEVER once again, you have to go through that setup each and every time you start Pandora. IS there a way to save these settings?
5. My Visio TV has Internet Apps with netflix and Pandora, so does the 770. It takes the Visio about 30 seconds to access either application and actually start playing a movie or music. It takes the 770 about 4 minutes on the same wireless N connection. IS this typical.... 4 minutes to set up a movie or Pandora's music? Or is it possible that the Wireless N card in my 770 is bad?
6. If the 770 actually operates as I have described above... PANASONIC NEEDS TO IMPROVE THEIR OPERATING SYSTEM BIG TIME!!!!
7. The lcd display on the 770 has letters 1/4" high that are not able to be seen well enough to read across a 12ft room and it appears that you have to make all of your settings by reading that display, example - switching your Digital audio input on EVERY TIME you turn on your system or EVERY TIME you have to reselect Dolby to listen to your music.
It is a pain to have to walk across the room each time you start up the system to watch TV or want to make any change because there is no on screen display and the 770's display is too small to see and the system does not save the last used configuration.
