How do I force it to always output 1080p. I have A-to-H on and such, but when I have the PS3 connected and play a game, it switches to 720p. I thought it would output ALL sources @ 1080p no matter what.
scaling is ANALOG TO DIGITAL only, the HDMI video will just pass through untouched:http://batpigworld.com/fadq.html#section_03
in other words, if you want 1080p set your PS3 to 1080p
How do I make FM radio play through all 5 speakers?
Hit the "SIMU" button to engage 5 CH STEREO mode, the SIMU button runs through all the DSP "simulated" surround modes. 5 CH STEREO is the first one so you only need to press it once
Can I use the extra 2 amps to just drive 5.1 (I have no B speakers OR zone2.. just a normal 5.1).
yes but it requires bi-amp capable speakers. if you have them, set AMP ASSIGN to "FrontA Bi-Amp" and then you will have run some extra wire:http://batpigworld.com/setup.html#amp_assign
I have 3 sources (PS3 via HDMI1 (DVD\\HDP), UVERSE cablebox via Component-2 (TV\\CBL) and Optical-1 (AUX), and Wii via Component-3 (DVR) and RCA-4 (DVR)). On the remote I press DVD\\HDP for the PS3, TV\\CBL for UVERSE TV, and I have to open the back and press DVR (7) for the Wii. I really want to be able to press VCR (on the front of the remote) to access the Wii. That way all 3 sources are accessible via the front of the remote. How do I make this happen?
remember lesson 1 is IGNORE THE LABELS (except for composite red/yellow/white connections). think about what "name" you want something to use, and then connect/assign as needed.
So, if you want the Wii to pop up when you select the "VCR" name, do this:
1. the component video can simply be reassigned to the VCR name -- go to INPUT SETUP, select "VCR" at the top, and then go to ASSIGN and set the component video assignment to "RCA-3" (assuming you have it plugged into the #3 component video input) and set all other assignments to "none"
2. the analog audio from the Wii isn't assignable, so simply plug the red/white stereo RCA cable into the one called "VCR" instead of the one called "DVR".
3. if desired, renamed "VCR" to say "Wii"
Now when you select the "VCR" input it will grab the video from component input #3, and then take the audio from the "VCR" analog inputs.
