Any Yamaha 640 or Marantz SR5400?

Hi

I've decided to buy one of the following.

Marantz is probably better but costs a little more. Yamaha has some good reviews and basically has want I want.

My question please is, does anybody with one of these know if the Sky/Sky+ remote can be programmed to control the volume, similar to controlling a TV?

Thanks

Hi,

I have a 640 and cannot get the Sky controller to get the volume to work, I could not get the yamaha control to work the sky either after both emailing yamaha and speaking to sky.

Hope this helps.

Remember that the new V650 is released next month - so that may be worth looking at ...

I would opt for the Marantz. The power amps built into this receiver are better then the Yamaha.

Thanks for the replies everybody.

Ordered the Marantz this morning before anybody had replied - good price from QED and she arrives tomorrow:clap:

Hope I can control the volume or it's going to cost me for a Pronto:thumbsdow

I'm pretty sure it can't but it will probably control your telly and the $ky+ volume by dint of being plugged into it.

Great Choice!

The Marantz is a far better all-rounder, better musically and also great for Home Cinema!

The Yamaha is a great choise for movies and effects only.
