It stays. You still have your menu functions on your DVD player. If you pass-through to it, you can access them. Alternatively, you can just turn the Entre off and access them.
Same thing for groups that I have set up. Are they independent from entre groups?
Does the entre come with a seperate remote than the one on the 5900? If it does, what type of component is the entre to a universal remote? A receiver?
Yes, there's a separate remote. As for what type of component it is to a universal remote . . . if I understand your question properly, it's whatever you program the remote to be. You may be talking about a basic universal remote with hard buttons designating things like "vcr," "tv," "receiver," etc. I don't know that those remotes really "care" what you program into them, and, if you're limited to hard buttons, you simply need to remember which one substitututes for the Entre.
The two remotes for the DV5900M and the Entre comprise one of the bothersome issues about the scheme. You need both, so the best thing that I've found is to simply create your own layout on something like a Pronto. That's what I've done.
