Instead of turning them off, why not just choose an audio mode that doesn't use them.

It won't.

Note that simply setting a speaker to None should not turn off Audyssey as would changing the AMP ASSIGN setting.

If you say so. I vaguely recall some issues with that but I have not tried it in quite some time.

I do wonder why the OP cannot simply avoid modes that use the height channels.

Perhaps I need to think this through some more. The height channels are driven by the SpeakerCraft amp which sucks some power and gets fairly hot. The amp is brought out of STANDBY using one of the 8801's triggers. Avoiding modes that use the height channels will kill the height channel outputs of the 8801 but the trigger will still turn on the amp... unless I use the amp's auto sensing instead of the trigger input. Duh!!! I'll give this a try.
