Here are some FAQ I need some help on. What is the best process to set up the 705 for listening to Music CD's versus DVD Movies/TV? When listening to Music CD's, I prefer stereo using 2 speakers. For DVD Movies and HD TV (such as football games), I prefer using 7 speakers/7.1. How do I go about setting up the 705 for this preference? From your post, if I use the CD Player can the 705 be programmed to know to use stereo to just 2 speakers and then know to change to 7.1 when I switch to DVD/Cable? Is it easy to switch from 2 speaker stereo to 7.1?
Can I also have a preference for listening to Standard Definition 480P cable channels so that the TV speakers are used? When using cable TV, can I easily change from TV speakers to 7.1 surround depending on the cable channel?
Assuming I only have one room, can I use the Zone 1 and Zone 2 to set the speaker settings for listening to Music CDs in Stereo vs. DVD/HDTV 7.1 movies/TV?
In short, what is the best process to set up the 705 for listening to music vs. watching DVD's vs. watching HDTV cable channels vs. watching standard definition 480P cable channels? Is there any difference between the 605/705/805 in this regard?
Finally, is there a noticeable viewing difference when upconverting standard 480P cable channels via the 705 receiver to 720P?
Thanks again for your FAQ, these are most helpful as I have been comparing the 605/705/805 for several weeks now.
