I bought my V571 a few days ago and am having a few issues I hope you can shed some light on. I realize this thread is for the V671, but I hope you folks will take pity on a humble V571 owner, as we do not appear to have our own thread. My understanding is that the receivers are fairly identical in the things that matter to me, so hopefully my questions will be relevant to the higher model too.
1) Is there any way to put the receiver into 2.1 stereo mode for music? Cycling through all music modes from an ipod gives me pure 2-channel, 5.1 "surround", and a million "hall" modes.
2) While watching a 2-channel DVD last night (first episode of Long Way Round) bitstreamed via PS3, the receiver automatically put itself into the faux-surround "PLII Movie" mode. It sounded fine, but kept cycling the messages "Dolby Digital" and "PLII Movie" on the display the entire episode, every 5 seconds or so. This got really distracting - is this proper functioning, and is there a way to turn it off?
Thanks for the help!
