Just picked up on what seems to be the fairly regular weekend special for $450 at Newegg. Sound is good so far, and I'm just getting into all the settings and setup.
Two issues so far:first, I thought there had been a Night Mode, but I can't find it in the manual, so I can't figure out where to turn it on.
Second, when connecting the HTPC (Windows 7Pro, with AMD 4830 video card with 2x DVI, with audio out over video) I'm unable to get the audio sent out over the HDMI cable. I used to be able to do it (and can when I plug directly into the TV), but when going into the 1121 I don't get the option (Windows says it's not connected). Now the funny thing is if I leave the audio selection on Auto on the 1121 it seems to detect audio there, and switches to that (leaving me without audio that is being run over the optical). If I set it Digital (manually) then all is fine (this had been causing me grief, and lowered WAF considerably) but no HDMI audio (one extra cable, and the optical is in use). So it seems like the receiver and the video card aren't handshaking properly for some reason-if that is the case is it likely just the video card (anyone have a known good card?) or should I go back and try the onboard HDMI port?
Other than those two things I've been pretty happy. I currently have 4 JBL Control 5 speakers, and am looking for a new center and subwoofer- anyone have any suggestions for the pair that comes in total
under $300 (NYC apartment so I'm not going to loud [landlords are directly below], and the space isn't too big). I realize that might be way too low even for the subwoofer for some of you, but that's what I've got to work with (I'm glad I was able to get the new AVR at all).
