I switched Network Control from Always On to Off in Standby (the only other option), and that did fix one of my two issues. The receiver no longer turns itself on when my phone tries to connect to it via bluetooth. Thanks for the pointer!
The second issue remains though - not sure if it's a "feature" of my phone, or a "feature" of the receiver. To replicate the issue, I:
* Put the receiver in DBS/Sat mode so I can watch TV
* Phone has bluetooth on, and its paired to the receiver, but not currently connected.
* Turn off bluetooth on the phone
* Turn on bluetooth on the phone. When bluetooth is turned on, the phone sees that it's near enough to the receiver to attempt to connect to it.
* The receiver will switch to bluetooth mode by itself once the phone tries to connect
Maybe this is just the way it's designed, but IMHO, it would be less problematic if the receiver didn't automatically switch to bluetooth.
