I received my used 100x5r yesterday to accompany my new av32r 7.1 but was a little disapointed to see that the remote control was missing. Obviously ill contact the seller (from eBay) but as they are a shop, I may not have any luck in getting the remote. Is this is a big deal? Am I missing out on anything by NOT having the remote? I can imagine that it would cost a silly amount to buy a replacement direct from IAG so I won't bother unless I need it to control something fundamental on the amp. My other question revolves around the Tagtronic bus. I connected it up with some straight-through cat5 cable (that I know works) but the AV32r was unable to detect the Amp. The amp would however dim its lights in tandem with the AV32r so from reading previous posts I know that the connections are working correctly. Im assuming ill need to update the software on the amp? Again, I dont really want to go to the expense of buying a Tag programming cable if its not absolutely necessary..I mean, what am I really missing out by not connecting the two?
