So settings will change dependant upon 2D or 3D modes? I was under the impression that picture settings would be tied to individual HDMI inputs.

I'll need to try it out.

Thx

I'm not bragging, and I'm genuinely sympathetic for those...

Heck, if the platform could support the addition of yet another format, I'd pony up for another upgrade (similar to that of the Auro 3D upgrade).

Question for long-time Marantz owners.

I'll be receiving my replacement 7009 tonight.

Is there any way to back-up settings from my current 7009 so I can restore them to the replacement?

LOL! I can vouch for that. My new 7009 is far cooler than the old Onkyo TX-NR905 that it replaced.
