I have an Oppo 980 (DVD-Audio and SACD), a Toshiba HD-A2 (HD-DVD), a FIOS DVR, a D*TV DVR (yes, I have both services), a Pioneer Elite DVR-7000 DVD recorder and a Pioneer laser disc player. I will be getting a BD player a short time after I get my new pre/pro (probably the AV8003). I also have a Mac that I want to connect via DVI.
So I'll have 6 digital video sources (5 HDMI + 1 DVI) and three analog video sources to connect to the AV8003.
I plan on getting a Marantz VS3002 to increase the digital input capability of the AV8003.
I want to be able to use the RC2001 to select a source connected to the VS3002 and have the display on the AV8003 show it's name. For example, if I select the HD-DVD player, I want to see "HD-DVD" displayed on the front of the receiver. For those with access to the English manual, can this be done?
Also, the manual for the VS3002 is a little confusing. If you connect the VS3002's remote jack cables to the AV8003, why do you need to activate the Link function?
