Everything will be Pioneer Elite except my Oppo 983 which I can already use the 151's remote for. Also how is the HDMI control holding up? Is it buggy or does it work as advertised? Thanks!
Will have to check all the functions tonight Vonbeck777, I just use it to turn/off on the AVR when I turn on/off the TV, and volume control.. (with the dish or TV remote). My tv remote and the AVR remote do a good job integrating most functions (PRO-110FD).
It's a good question though, and I will look at it. HDMI controls the "synch" mode, when operated, it allows additional functions like switching tuner stations and pops up on the screen on lower left hand side.. I just put it in the back of mind to try later.
I have one irratating issue...
I don't know if it's me, my expectations, or a problem....
When I turn on the TV the AVR turns on, I get a brief picture, then the screen says "switching Audio" then "switching input" and shows a blank screen.
I found out it switches to "tv" operation. the button on the remote called tv is set to "component" (and you can only program it switch to component 1-4, HDMI is greyed out when HDMI control is in use) and have to hit HDMI button on the SC-07 to get everything back.
My workaround was to connect to the component inputs as well as the HDMI from the HR-21 (it simultaneously outputs to both) and optical to opt1...
Picture quality-wise, I see no difference from HDMI and component with the HR-21(both output 1080i) problem averted, but it bugs me. Like I said, it may be me or my expections.. I'm still learning. But I would expect the unit to switch to HMDI and not component.
