3: i am not able to use airplay, i will be updating the firmware today maybe that will fix the issue, was just making sure.
thanks again for all your help
1. Yes, you should be able to. There's a section in the manual about entering the codes. I think the codes are on the CD. I'm not sure of the details, because I use my cable box remote to turn the TV, cable box, and AVR on and off, and to control the AVR volume. That way the same remote is also used to browse the TV cable guide.
2. There isn't generally as much information on the surround channels in 5.1 listening. Put on some music and set it to 7-channel stereo to see if things sound more even.
3. I had a lot of trouble with Airplay at first, and it seems that many people do. I was using my ISP-provided router, and the AVR would show up for a while, then it wouldn't show up. I ended up buying a Netgear router, wiring that to the ISP router and running my network off of that. It has worked fine ever since. That said, I have no idea whether your problem is similar to what mine was.
