I have a Yamaha RX- A720 receiver, and today I enabled the HDMI passthrough function ( allowing you to watch TV with the receiver in standby ) , and I was wondering if there are any problems associated with using this feature? Sometimes on the weekends I will prop myself up in bed and watch TV, and usually I fall asleep rolleyes.gif . So I would rather not leave the AVR on for that long, even though i do have a fan blowing on it.

no problems enabling pass hdmi pass-thru.

the only thing to keep in mind is you will be using more stand-by power. my onkyo is something like 5w at stand-by and around 35w at stand-by with hdmi pass-thru enabled. (watts number may be wrong, but it is the wattage used is something similar to what I wrote).

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!
LOL!
