I contacted Anthem but haven't received a response yet.
Is CEC engaged? I found it caused my unit to be quite
Warm when the AVR was turned off.

Can't comment on the double click??

You're the man. That's exactly what it was, I forgot I enabled it recently. If CEC is on the receiver only does a single click during power up/down. I'm guessing the second click that is missing is whatever is being left on for CEC to function and also what is putting out the heat.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man

Thanks, I remember when the CEC upgrade came
Out I was initially excited, but after noticing how warm
My MRX stayed I disabled it. Heat an AVR's don't play
Well together.

Does anyone know why when i have HDMI audio out set to avr +tv, it automatically reverts back to AVR only when i power off and on? i have my cable box set to PCM and run hdmi to the MRX300 which i have set to AVR+tv so i can pass through and take advantage of lip sync. When i shut it off and turn the unit back on it always goes back to AVR only so i have to go into the settings and make it AVR+tv again to get sound through the tv.
