3 words: "Be veeery patient."
Plus, once the movie's started, don't touch the remote(s). Do not go in n out of Setup, do not fwd or rev, pause, skip to next, last, whatever. Only then can you really enjoy the show. My better half actually likes these restrictions
If you miss a phrase and want to go back, hit REV 32x else you'll miss it again.

3) Yes, you can. But just for avoiding having 2 receivers in the chain (2 vol knobs) I would recommend using external amp(s) instead.
4) This may be a dead horse, but in my experience there are 1 general issue with HDMI and 1 specific issue with video scaling and they have not been fixed (I am pretty sure I've got the latest firmware and done the reset a couple of times). With HDMI, when you switches sources, fwd, rev on your disc player, etc, you'll lose the first 2 to 4 seconds of audio. On the video scaling, if engaged in any way, it would not pass thru 1080/24p from my Oppo 83SE to my Benq W5000. It would convert it to 1080/60 instead. Setting it to 'bypass' fixes the problem. I am surprised no one else has mentioned this issue of not passing through 1080/24p with settings other than bypass. Using a $20 HDMI switcher with audio sources going to my non-HDMI pre/pro by ways of optical or analog does not give me any of these problems but... it does not give me Trinnov, either
