Sorry for a delayed follow-up here, but I finally got the time to re-wire my AVR. I wired my system as much:
AVR video out to TV HDMI1 input
DVR connected to TV via component video/audio
Xbox 360 to TV HDMI 2 input
TV audio via optical out to AVR
Blu-Ray to AVR via HDMI
PC to AVR via HDMI
My goal here to is to basically use the AVR only to handle audio, allowing me to use the TV screen for video display (TV watching, Gaming) while switching between audio sources in the AVR. I assigned the TV Audio input to the optical audio coming in from the TV. I removed the HDMI assignment for my CBL/SAT input.
I was able to watch TV via switching the TV input to Component and audio through the AVR via the TV Audio input. However, when I streamed some Spotify via AirPlay, the AVR switched over to Network, switching the display to the AVR (giving me the Denon logo display). What have I done wrong here? The Network setting isn't assignable, so will it always override other video inputs? I thought running video sources through the TV, and only running audio out to the AVR would avoid any display conflicts when switching AVR inputs, but clearly I'm missing something.
Sorry for the barrage of questions, but I'm kind of stuck here.
