I think all the major brands have the same philosophy. Introducing a new model is an opportunity to reduce the cost of manufacture, even if there are virtually no new features some years.

Usually that means the TV is not really off, but in standby mode where it doesn't completely disable its HDMI ports (so the AVR keeps trying to handshake). Maybe there's a setting on the TV that...

A lot of people just use Straight mode (with Extended Surround set to Dolby PLIIx Movie if you have a 7.1 setup). Otherwise it's whatever you happen to like best.

Using 3 out of the available 7 PEQ filters on a Yamaha will get you this. And presumably those speakers won't need many more filters for room correction if they're crossed over at 180Hz.

Look at the 9.1.2 diagram on page 24 of the white paper. The speakers at the sides (numbered 6) are called "rear surrounds". Kind of confusing, unless they just made a mistake.
