If I manually
change to PLII (no major fuss) then when I later switch to another source (my Squeezebox), the amp stays
on PLII, which is precisely the sort of thing I thought the presets were there to avert.
I've checked everything over and over again, but I don't get it.
It's not all that hard guys, but there is perhaps, a little trick to it.
First, go to a --> Preset <--- setup, say, Preset1, and change the name to whatever you want, say "Music". Save it.
Second, go to seteup and select a source, say your "Music" source. Setup the speakers, tone controls, formats, front panel, all the things you want.
--> Be sure to select your "Music" preset in the appropriate slot in the "source setup" screen.
--> Near the bottom of the source setup, there is an entry that says somethign like "Save Current Settings to Preset"
Select that, and voila - all your settings for this are now setup in a "Preset" linked to this source, called Music. Now suppose you want to have another source with the same settings?
When you setup the source, just select "Music" as the preset, but not *not* resave the settings. Each time you change to the source, you will get the "Music" settings.
Repeat for your Telelvision, BlueRay, etc. Usually you need only two or three presets, and can use them on multiple sources. For example, my Bluray player and my Apple TV both use a Preset called "Bluray", even though each source has a difference HDMI port assigned.
I also have a source that sucks in music from the Bluray player, and applies my "Music" preset to it.
Does that help a little, or did I just manage to confuse you more?
