Just awesome. can't wait for AVM 60 manual to come out to confrom that they retain this gem.
The AVM60 along with the new MRX series retains the 'soft' or 'virtual' input configurations, however the total number of possible inputs has been increased from 20 to 30 and the number of possible speaker profiles has been increased from 2 to 4. This is so that if someone wants to have 2-channel digital, 2-channel stereo, 5/7.1 surround, and Atmos all on the same system they will be able to have profiles for each.

1st i can't get my Amazon fire TV to work. When i chose the input that it's connected to i see nothing on the TV and it says no signal on the MRX screen. If I pug directly on the TV it works so the fire TV is ok. If I connect to another input on the MRX that works with my PS4 it still doesn't work. Is this a setting issues?
2nd is there another way beside the remote to do setups. I want to rename the inputs but it's a pain to do with a remote. I have the app but doesn't seem to allow typing from the phone. I tried putting the IP address in a web-browser in hopes that I could connect that way but it doesn't seem to work.
1) I would contact Anthem support, they'll know if this problem has previously been experienced and if there is a work around or setting required.
2) Unfortunately there is no way to rename the inputs other than the remote.

I had it add moderate volume (-40db, ARC off 2ch only) driving my Klipsch RF82iis. The 510 would not come back on. The 510 was cool to the touch on top. When I tried to power up, I see the blue display that says powering on for a split second, and then it shuts down again.
My dealer, Starpower in Dallas, has shipped my 510 back to Anthem for repair.
Has anyone encountered this before? How long did Anthem take to resolve the issue and is the standard practice to repair the unit or tell the dealer to replace it? Thanks!
Sorry to hear you had an issue. For receivers/pre-pros once it is back at the factory it will usually be turned around within a week at the longest. Total time will depend on when it arrives at our Buffalo shipping center as there is a single consolidated shipment back to the factory from there once a week. After the repair is finished it will be shipped directly to your dealer.

I am using Direct Connect right now because the LAN connection doesn't seem to work either... any help?
I would contact Anthem support. Just off the top of my head the IP address strikes me as a little low. Is the Anthem, your PC, and the router the only thing on the network?
Make sure that the unit is set to auto for network settings. If it is set to a static IP then make sure it is outside the DHCP range. If the IP is static and set that low then likely another device already has that IP address so ARC is attempting to connect to it.

I did a load factory defaults , unplug ethernet cable, follow the Text instructions, various USB pens etc etc and no success installing the 1.2.9
Contact tech support and get them to send you the 240V firmware directly. Maybe try downloading it again as it seems like there may be an issue with the file. Tech support will help you through it.
