Just bought the 01, won't be opening it for a few days. Got it from BB from $599.99. Bought my entire home theatre from them so they gave me a big deal. I'll be hooking up a Comcast DVR, Playstation 3, and Samsung BD-P2550 Blu Ray to my 01. The entire system is going to have HDMI everything. Isn't this the best way to set up a system? Also, here are my questions.
1. To confirm, if I set up my system this way, I will always have to keep the vsx on in order to get speakers out of my television? ( Samsung LN52A750. ) I will usually use the surround system for movies and games, but just watching television I will want just the tv speakers on, how will I set this up?
2. In order to perform the above, do I need alter the "HDMI control"
3. How will I be able to turn on my tv with the VSX, where both receivers turn on at the same time?
4. Is there any setting I need to change so that the receiver will decode the high def codecs? Or by bitstreaming the movies out of my blu ray and making sure I selected the high def audio on the disc itself, will the receiver automatically recognize it and display tru hd and DTS-HD MSTR?
