Also I have not been able to get the 751BR and 751R to communicate using the 7.1 direct button and the analogue connections between the units.
I have a 752BD connected to my 751rV2 using both HDMI and analogue cables and everything is working fine: I can switch the input from HDMI to analogue (which I am doing e.g. when I am playing a SACD) and back (for playing BluRay discs).
However, I also had a problem when both HDMI outputs of my 752BD were used: the 752BD HDMI-Out1 was connected to the 751rV2 and the 752BD HDMI-Out2 was connected to HDMI-In1 of my beamer (Epson EH-TW9100), while the 751rV2 HDMI-Out1 was was connected to my TV and the 751rV2 HDMI-Out2 was also connected to the beamer. With this setup, there was occasionally no sound when I was playing a BluRay disc. However, after I simply disconnected the direct HDMI connection between the 752BD the 751rV2 everything was working fine.

this is a pretty interesting question. Nobody seems to know that (not my dealer nor his distributor ..) I only know that the Logitech Harmony Extender does not work (at least not with the cables that I tried).

I am using a CA Stream Magic 6v2 which supports Spotify Connect and I am quite happy with it.

I have both devices and I would recommend them: I encountered no serious problems so far.

that's interesting: I had a Marantz SR7008 which I traded in for a CA 751rV2 since I had picture dropout problems with the Marantz. Since I have the Cambridge receiver, my beamer never lost the signal from my 752BD (which frequently happened with the Marantz).

I am also using one and I have one problem with the activities:
When all my devices are turned off and I choose an activity (such as "play a BluRay disc") the input selected on my 751rV2 is always the same that was used before I put the device into standby (e.g. the Stream Magic). However, once the 751rV2 is powered on, I can switch between my programmed activities and the 751rV2 always picks the correct input. Thus, my Harmony is sending the correct signals. Does anybody know how to fix this?
I already tried re-ordering my devices, such that the 751rV2 is always switched on as the first/last device for an activity but this did not help. After powering on, the 751rV2 always remembers the last input and I once have to change it manually.
