It does not allow me to turn Downmix to "Off" ...only "Stereo" or "Surround."

Cabuzzi bought a new AVR to solve this. I have the same problem but don't want to but a new AVR. Any advice?

So far, I have the following hooked up to it:

- PC via HDMI1
- Wii via component and optical on AV1 (using a PCM converter)
- Dreamcast via composite (AV5)
- GameCube via composite (AV6)
- Nintendo N64 via composite (front aux, for now)
- NES via composite (front aux, for now)

The NES and N64 won't output video... just audio. I've tried them on different inputs (ice AV5 and AV6), but it's the same result.

Ironically, the GameCube and N64 use the exact same connector, but the GC works and the N64 doesn't.

Any tips? I'm considering getting some sort of AV switch, as I have too many inputs for the V665's composite inputs to handle, so maybe something like that could be factored into a solution...

After digging in a bit I think it is a 240/ 480 issue. It upconverts 480 in Gamecube and dreamcast to HDMI (quite well actually) but will not do the 240 of the older systems. Too bad.
