You don't have to. It remembers the last Listening Mode for each signal type on that source/input. For example-
Feed the receiver a 5.1 signal on hdmi1, set the listening mode to Dolby Digital.
Feed the receiver a 2.0 signal on hdmi1, set the listening mode to Neo6.
Feed the receiver a DTS HD signal on hdmi1, set the listening mode to DTS HD.
Change the signal type on your hdmi1 device as many times as you like, the receiver will remember whatever the listening mode was set to when you last fed it that type of signal.
If are changing inputs/sources then you can also go into the menu and FORCE the receiver to always stick on one listening mode for that input/source no matter what type of signal is fed on that input.
