Recieved my 804 yesterday from CC online and got it set up via HDMI except for the Xbox 360 via component. Everything seems to be working good but I have a question about the remote.
I have programed the macro buttons to turn on the DVD, TV, and Receiver with a single button push (Wife requirement!) which works fine however the remote has a different button to turn OFF
the receiver so I have to waste another macro button just to turn it all off via Macro. This really seems ridiculous to have two seperate power buttons (on and off) for the receiver. Does anybody know of a way to turn the 804 power on and off via a single infared command?
As for the notorious hum, to help me understand since I'm a newbie to all this, is there an expectation that there will be no
sound hum/feedback heard by turning up the volume to the max (+15) while DVD or TV (DVR) is paused? I do get it but only at volumes that I think I would never be able to listen to.
So far though, I am very happy with this purchase as my old receiver was audio only and now with both audio and video going through the receiver (via HDMI), and two more speakers, I actually have less cabling than I had with the old setup.
I'll do some more experimentation with the hum issue and report back if I'm able to provide any pertinent feedback. I can confirm now though that there is no significant hum coming from my subwoofer, it is all from the other speakers.
