I hate to beat a dead horse here but I hope Yamaha is listening. I read the posts about the displayed volume level and thought I don't really care one way or the other I'm going to buy it. Having the volume display on the tv sounds nice. But after using it for a bit it's actually fairly anoying not to be able to turn it off. it pops up over the movie you're watching if you need to adjust volume during playback.
One interesting thing I did note last night was that while watching a recorded DVR show that was in SD it didn't show the volume on the screen while I adujsted it. probably because it's displayed in different resolution. when I switched to a show recorded in Hi-def it showed the volume bar again. But for a brief time I thought one of my kids had stumbled on an acidental sequence of remote control key stokes that had turned it off.
