Hey Gurkey...and others...not sure you answered my question. Are you able to play a CD over HDMI connect without having the Monitor on? Not sure about others? I don't seem to be able to. The reciever seems to search for it, but never locks on and plays the CD...until that is...I turn on the Monitor! This was and continues to be dumb...was hoping the 1.08 firmware my address this..otherwise it does correct a number of other items!
