Doug - I tried some things this morning
Select Stereo Music
The AVR downmixes to that
Go thru menus to switch visual on front face, a PIA (stupid Denon for doing this)
Yep Input was DD 5.1
When I played with different modes, and in that mode tweaked settings, it did remember what I did.
(I was playing with different 11.1 modes)
So as switched back to it those tweaks were there.
I've not checked if that is a temp memory or written to memory via on/off the AVR test, I'll do that later.
So, while not auto switching to stereo upon source detect, if you select music>stereo via remote and do some tweaks in set-up menu, as long as it remembers them that should be acceptable for your needs, right?
