Newbie question about AVR7701

Hello,

I've recently attempted to put together my first multi-channel system and purchased a Marantz AVR7701 (and Parasound A51) for my pre/pro (and amp). For now I'm sticking with 2-channel until my budget permits otherwise. I cabled my blu-ray player using HDMI to the pre/pro and then HDMI out to the TV. Everything works fine when the AVR7701 is on, but sometimes I just want to use the TV speaker and don't want to keep my stereo on... I was hoping that the HDMI pass-through would still work in this case, but I get no picture or sound unless the pre/pro is on.

Hope that makes sense. I'm very new to all of this. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

This is actually the "AV7701" as it is a pre/pro and not an AVR model. Refer to p. 117 in the Owner's manual and set HDMI Control to ON and the Standby Source to whatever source it is you want to pass through when the unit is in Standby.

Also note there is an AV7701 Owner's thread where you may find some useful information ....
