No ... AVRs put out their rated power into 2CH and it decreases with the addition of each additional speaker as there is only one power supply. Read post 32.

Using an external amp takes a load off of the AVR. At 7CH the AVR is likely to drop to about 60% of max power, so at 9 likely to drop to about 45-50% of max power (ie. 55W/CH).

Likely just an incompatibility with that media box (not likely to be fixed by firmware). Try connecting the media box to each of the other HDMI inputs to see if one works differently.

Correct. No change from the SR6010. This is the sister model to the Denon X3300W but with 2 more amps. You must upgrade to the SR7011 for 3 zone capability.

Depends .... as the current D+M "flagship" AVR, the X7200WA has more features/inputs/outputs and better audio quality; however, if the SR6011 meets your needs, then go for it. :)
