Well I bought the HT-SS360 yesterday, the price was right (and on sale!).
One question I have is that when I turn on the receiver, it always defaults to "TV", even though "TV" is only an optical cable connection to my TV (although I am using cable box, so am I supposed to put the optical cable into the TV or the receiver? Hell, the whole thing works without the cable plugged in anyways!).
If I switch to "SAT", it uses my HDMI connection to my cable box, and all is perfect surround, etc. On "TV" surround doesn't work, not sure if this is by design or not.
Does anyone have any insights on this? Any way to default to "SAT" mode as "TV" is pretty much useless?
