I stand corrected: The sony 1040 was reviewd by Home Theatre mag, it has a good amp section and outputs with 5 channels driven continuously into 8-ohm loads: 0.1% distortion at 76.3 watts

I bought an Harman Kardon AVR 3700. I am having a problem with the option HDMI audio to TV. The receiver has 2 HDMI outpus but seems impossible to get simultaneos audio on TV and receivers loudspeakers.
I have the AVR 3700 on livingroom with 5.1 speakers and a TV connected at HDMI 1 out. everything ok. (I don't need the TV audio here)
I want to connect at hdmi 2 out another TV in the next room , to use it with the internal tv speakers only.
The problem is:
When i go at system setup menu on avr, and turn ON the "HDMI audio to TV" , the audio ONLY Goes to the TVs. It stops to send audio to the receiver on the 5 speakers + subwoofer.
What the hell is this??
I think the correct is:
HDMI audio to TV - OFF -> The audio only goes to the receiver and the speakers coneected to it
HDMI audio to TV - ON -> The audio goes both to the receiver and speakers conected to it + to TVs
I had an avr 3650 before, and it worked like this!
What happens? Problem? only my receiver? May be an issue that will be corrected by a new firmware?
This is a copy of avr 3700 owner's guide:
Hello Harman Kardon!!!! Are you there?
So the costumer reads the owner's guide before buying a product , and when he buy it , the product behaves different from what the Owner's guide says??
What kind of company does that? Why are this happening to Harman Kardon products?
Why to block the audio from receiver when you leave the setting to ON ?
What the bennefit of this? Basically no one beneffits of this choice!
I sent an email at costumer care at harman's website, and no answer until 5 days!
This is very bad...
I'm using avr 3700 for about 2months. It's all right. No problem except for the change they made. It's impossible now to have simoutaneously sound from tv speaker and receiver. I think the 2 hdmi outsputs are useless in this case.
I had avr 3600 and 3650 with no bugs. everything perfect.
