Thanks in advance!
I also wanted to chime in since I recently did this.
Since I recently ran into the same issue, I also wanted to confirm you can assign different inputs to go with the HDMI, including an optical out (which I did a few days ago).
There are several things like this that can be done, the manual isn't too clear on some of them.
You can setup four HDMI configurations (1-4) to be able to be recalled from the remote, with custom inputs. This includes additional remote codes for each HDMI setting individually, etc.
In order to use the scene buttons, if you so desire, the easiest way I found was to first setup an HDMI preset the way I liked it with inputs and control codes according to the manual. Then you can transfer it all to one of the white scene buttons by holding down the scene button, then the HDMI button, until the receiver shows scene set. This was the only way I could figure out to ad/set custom remote codes to the individual scenes (BD/DVD, TV, CD, Radio).
P.S. I just realized I have the 565 and this is the 665 thread, but the above should still be true for the 665.
