Greetings from a long time lurker, first time poster. The Quick Select on my 3310 is setup as:
Quick Select 1 is set to HDMI-1 (source D-Link Boxee Box)
Quick Select 3 is set to Optical-1 (source Logitech Squeezebox Touch via S/PDIF - TosLink)
Quick Select 1 is renamed to BoxeeBox
Normally I leave this in the "STANDARD" surround mode
However when I am watching sitcoms (2ch audio), I prefer "PURE"
(Dolby PLII and DTS Neo pushes lot of the background laughter to the rear speakers irritatingly)
I switch to Quick Select 3 renamed to Logitech
It remembers STEREO as the mode for this source.
But when I switch back to BoxeeBox using Quick Select 1 button, it is in STEREO
From what I understand I need to "re-memorize" Quick Select 1 to the PURE mode by holding down the Quick Select 1 button for a few seconds.
I have done this already but it still reverts to STEREO
I might be able to workaround this by setting it Quick Select 1 to DIRECT, but I would prefer PURE
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Denon assumes that the "standard" mode would be surround sounds for any type of input signal, so for a multich input (e.g. Dolby Digital 5.1) the "standard" button locks on to the straight decoding, and for a stereo input it switches between methods of upmixing 2.0 > 5.1 (Dolby Pro Logic II > DTS Neo).
So the "standard" button is not analogous to the "straight" button on the Yamaha. The closest analogue would be the "direct" mode on the Denon, which basically plays the input signal AS IS with NO PROCESSING, but that means you also don't get bass management or Audyssey EQ as well.
The good news is that the Denon remembers your surround mode preference by INPUT SIGNAL and also by INPUT SOURCE. So if you want to listen to 2-ch inputs as 2-ch, put the receiver in STEREO mode and it will remember that next time.
There is no way to "globally" apply this setting, you have to do it for each input. But once you do it once, it will remember it going forward.
If you want to check your current "memorized" surround mode, go to the GUI and then INFORMATION > AUTO SURROUND. It will show you a list of what the currently memorized surround modes are given the input signal type.
(NOTE that if you are using the Quick Selects to change inputs, you need to RE MEMORIZE the Quick Select after you make these changes or it will revert back every time)
