Waiting for my WR7 and remote extender to show up and have a few questions I have not been able to find in all the forums, reviews, or manual:
Here is what I have and what I want to control
Panasonic VIERA TC-L55ET5 55-Inch TV Living Room
Yamaha RX-V673 Hall Closet
Directv HR 23 Hall Closet
Panasonic DMP-BDT220 3d BluRay Player Hall Closet
Sony CD Player Hall Closet
Next Generation Remote Extender Hall Closet
Sharp LCD TV Outside
Yamaha Speakers on Zone 2 Outside
I'm certain I can turn on the receiver with this remote, but can I turn on zone 2 and control the input and volume? My Yamaha remote has a switch for Main and then Zone 2 so wasn't sure if this is possible or not since there is no switch on the WR7???
I plan to use macros, but here is an issue I'm not sure how to tackle. One macro will be to turn on receiver, dvr, and tv. This will obviously enable the surround sound. However when wife and baby are sleeping I would want to turn off the receiver and then the sound automatically comes out of the tv where I would like to control the TV volume. Any suggestions on the best way to program this? This will be my first shot at programming a remote like this and if someone can save me hours of trial and error it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much from a long time reader, first time poster...Kevin
