I'm debating doing this myself, I don't need the optical passthrough with my current setup but if I moved the 5.8 mixamp to the projector room I'd need it, that receiver doesn't accept hdmi.
Did reaper ever get his TX unit back to confirm it has been 'fixed'? I'm not going to contact Astro until someone confirms they have changed it.
Formula and I talked about this...I don't understand why Astro can't just release a firmware update via USB to turn this feature off if you want to. I mean it's gotta be flash ROM with the operating instructions in the TX unit. Why would you possibly have to change the hardware to tell the TX unit not to turn itself off after 30 minutes if no RX unit is detected?
