So the best I can tell there is no way to use an analog video out to a TV if one is using HDMI inputs. I just want to display the menu on an old CRT TV without having to turn on the projector which is the only HDMI output device. I see there is an analog composite video out but according to the table in the instructions, it won't display the menu.

Unfortunately, that's just the way it is with modern A/V equipment. Analog support is being minimized or dropped in everything You need to consider getting a cheap flat-panel TV with HDMI inputs. Ideally it should be one with the same resolution as your projector, since the HDMI video output gets set to be compatible with the least-capable HDMI display device.

So I did a Audyssey calibration with a boom mic stand and I am really happy with the results. Watched a few movies yesterday and I was real pleased with the sound. Still struggling with music though from my OPPO 95 Blu-ray. Any suggestions on settings for the 7701? Is there a way to get the settings for music to be separate from Movies?

2 ways ....

(1) Component Video source - Video Source setting - p. 125 Owner's manual, with audio source playing select video source connected with component video cables
(2) HDMI video source - set INPUT MODE (p. 124) to either "Digital", "Analog", or "7.1CH IN" of audio source with same source name as is being used for the HDMI source

I ran an optical connection from my OPPO Blu-ray to optical in for CD and configured it to digital. The good news is the settings for that CD source now are saved (Audyssey off) and when I switch the source to Blu-Ray for movies the Audyssey settings are on! Don't know if it is just me but CDs seem to sound better without Audyssey off running Dolby Pro Logic Surround Music. I miss the simple days of my late-50's era HH Scott 299A amp:
