I purchased a SR5006 yesterday, and have a couple questions.
1) According to Marantz's website, the SR5006 does the following video up-conversion; Composite/Component to HDMI, HDMI to HDMI. But, according to everything I've read here, it simply "converts" analog to HDMI, but does not do any type of scaling. Since this is the case, I assume HDMI to HDMI conversion is nonexistent? If so, they should really fix their website.See feature comparison
2) Since video scaling may be nonexistent, I'm a bit concerned about this receiver's ability to output the menu via something other than HDMI. Why would I want to do this? Well, I have a projector connected to the HDMI out, and use a small 7" LCD screen connected to the composite video out for use when not using the projector. This is extremely useful when listening to music, or when browsing the network (or internet) for music. If the OSD does not work with analog output, I will be extremely disappointed, especially considering the display on this receiver. In fact, this receiver could be really frustrating for anybody who may use analog out for their primary display (I highly doubt anybody would ever buy this receiver to connect to an analog input of a TV!). My Denon AVR-1909 handles this just fine....
3) The manual doesn't really talk much about the web setup feature. In fact, I didn't even see it mentioned in the manual. Does this indeed exist? According to the specifications PDF, this does indeed exist under the network features: WEB Interface. Does the web interface allow you to not only configure the receiver, but also control the receiver? By control, I mean can you change sources, select radio stations, browse network music, connect to internet radio, etc.? If so, this would practically eliminate my need to have a secondary display, and would render my #2 concern irrelevant.
Thanks in advance to everyone who answers any of my questions!
