In addition, when playing networked music, the plasma screen saver does not initiate after ten minutes. What are my options? Thank you in advance.
I have the same issue with my plasma. Modern plasmas are not so sensitive to IR, so it probably won't be an issue...especially if your TV has a pixel orbiter or similar anti IR feature. But since the image on Pandora and DNLA from the 709 is pretty basic anyway, I just turn off my TV, then turn it back on if I want to change playlists and whatnot. There is no option on the 709 for a screensaver feature.
Your options are to:
1) turn off the TV - live without the display
2) run HDMI out 2 to a small monitor - non plasma
3) If you have an iPhone or Android get the app of your choice and use it to monitor what is playing and the controls for the AVR.
