I've owned and enjoyed the SR7500 for a couple of years now. I recently moved into a new home, and have set up a different speaker configuration. I have a 5.1 set of speakers I am using for home theatre, and a 2.0 set of speakers for music. I've got the 5.1 as my "A" speaker set, and the 2.0 as my "B" speaker set.
Here's the problem -- while I am able to switch between them by pushing the button on the main unit, I don't see how to switch between A and B via the remote.
Also, and somewhat related, I noticed that a given input doesn't remember which speaker set I last used with it. For example, when I'm using DVD input, I want the A speaker set. For my CD player (actually a Squeezebox2*), I want the B speaker set. When I first set it all up, I switched to DVD input and selected the A speakers. Then I switched to CD player and selected the B speakers. But when I went back to DVD, it stayed with the B speakers. I found this odd, since it remembers other things, like whether I am in pure direct mode or not.
Anyway, I'm willing to manually switch between A and B when I switch inputs, but ideally I'd like to be able to do this from the remote control. Anyone have any insights into this?
Thanks a lot in advance for any help.
* - I highly recommend the Squeezebox to everyone. It plays digital music from your PC. Prior to using it I was considering getting a 100 CD changer just because I spent so much time swapping out different CDs. Now I never use my CD player -- the Squeezebox is higher quality audio and FAR more convenient. And Slim Devices (the company which makes the Squeezebox) is bar none the best company I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with -- a quality product, excellent support, active user forums, open source server software with lots of great user-created plugins, and more and more and more. So although it's not related to my problem, if anyone is reading this, I *highly* recommend you go to their web site (which the forum software won't let me post, since I am a new user, but you can easily find them via google). They recently came out with an audiophile grade player, The Transporter. I'm saving my pennies for that one, but I'm still very very happy with my Squeezebox (and my Squeezebox2 and my Squeezebox3).
