I have a couple of questions I hope somebody can answer for me.

I wired the RX-A3010, Direct TV box and Samsung UN65D800 TV the following:

HDMI out from Direct TV box into HDMI Input AV1 of RX-A3010 and HDMI Out 1 (ARC) of RX-A3010 into HDMI 2 input (ARC) of TV.

Now for my first question. When the RX-A3010 is turn off I can still watch TV (Picture and Sound), does the RX-A3010 pass the signal from Direct TV to TV even tho the RX-A3010 unit is turned off?

Question 2. Are there any setting to alway get 7.1 even tho source is only 5.1 on all Sound Program.

1. Yes, this feature is often called "standby through" because the audio and video will be passed through to the TV when the AVR is in standby mode.
2. Yes, you can select various 7.1 program sound fields even when the source is 5.1.
