Well, I bought the Denon. Had to buy another HDMI cable, did I listen to the salesman who wanted me to buy the $150 one? Hell no...I bought the $15 one, which works exactly the same...
Took a bit of time to install, and had to get some new speaker wire for a balky speaker. Have the cable installed via component, DVD burner/player via HDMI, and sat dish via component.
Did a audessy setup, need to do it again, as I think I didn't complete it right (didn't see the secret remote compartment). I am listening to a fantastic DVD audio which is in DTS 96/24 and is amazing (Frank Zappa Halloween, also FZ's Quaudiophrenia).
Only problem is that in looking at the remote codes, there is nothing for Vizio (TV), or RCA (DVD), Motorola (Cable), or Pansat (sat dish) 0 for 4.
Are there more codes out there?
