My setup includes a 2308CI connected using the HDMI to a BENQ PE7700 (720P) projector, an Xbox 360 (bought before I knew about the Xbox elites with HDMI), the Xbox HD DVD player, Definition speakers, with some older BOSE speakers for rear surround and a KEF center channel. A real mix and match.
The audyssey setup amazed me, and sounds great to me, even in a really peculiar room.
Do I have to go back to school to learn to use the Denon remote control? I have to abandon the remote to switch between my ipod and the xbox, and even then i don't know what i'm doing. Seriously, what is the best way for a complete AVR newbie to learn about the Denon's features?
Source Control Left.. AUDIO.... check
Source Control Right.. IPod/NETWORK... check
Open Secret Back Door... check
Press button 7... DVR.. check
That is how I can get the HD movie back on the screen if someone presses the wrong button on the remote....
Beyond the mysterious remote design, though, is pure gold... Pure listening pleasure...
