the receiver cannot "downconvert" from HDMI to component out, so you need to use component video from the Blu-ray player for the time being.

Okay, still need some help with the remote.
So I have the 1611 remote set up to control my blu-ray player (LG), my TV (panasonic), and the Apple TV. I have the BD and ATV set to Quick-Select 1 (BD), and 2 (SAT/CBL). Now when I hit Quick-Select 1, the input source changes, but I cannot control the BD player using the remote. I need to hit the BD button on the remote to do that. Same for the ATV (hitting the QS2 only changes the input source, but to change the remote mode I need to hit the SAT/CBL button as well).
So I effectively need to hit two buttons every time I change the source. Is this the way it is supposed to work, or am I missing something? How are the Quick Select buttons different from the Source buttons above them?
Yes, indeed this is how the remote works. You must first let the remote know which source you have selected by pressing that button on the remote in order for it to use the correct remote codes. Likewise in order for the remote to know you want a button to control the amp, you must first press AMP button. The Quick Select buttons are different in that they each store a number of unique settings for that particular source as noted on p. 34 in your manual.
