Sigh. I went to the trouble of borrowing an old desktop PC from a friend so I could apply the firmware upgrade to my AVR 635 in the hope of fixing its memory issue. Alas, the upgrade does not appear to have fixed the problem.
After successfully updating my firmware from 4.12 to 4.15, I entered a name for one of my components, turned the unit to standby and then pulled the plug for about 30 seconds. When I turned it back on, it was back to factory settings. Then I tried it again but unplugged the cord for just a few seconds. Same result. All settings lost.
I'm not sure why you're having better luck than me, brrrdog2. Maybe your capacitor isn't as bad as mine. All I know is I'm really bummed out. I love the AVR 635, but not enough to re-enter all my settings every time there's a power outage.
