    When you have a certain input selected on the AVR lets say "AV" and you go to the menu where it says...
    Audio: AV
    Video: AV
    HQ Video: AV
    ...is there anyway to save the changes you make? It is pretty annoying having to go in and change the settings all the time. I guess I'l have to figure out a new way to wire my sytem if this isn't possible.
    On other question... Is it possible to activate the front IR receiver and the rear panel IR mini jack at the same time?
    Thanks, Justin

    Mine automatically switches to the SAVE line after I change any setting!
    Or else I can't leave the setup screen...

    How the AVR300 saves changes hasn't altered with the update from 2.78 to 2.84. You get to the Save Changes prompt when you exit using the Menu button automatically. If you're finding another way to quit then maybe that's your problem.

    I'm talking about the settings in the regular menu, the one where you PRESS menu to enter. Not the advanced menu that you HOLD menu to enter.

    HI Onyx,

    That is your problem then. The standard menu change is only intended for a tempoary change. If you want it to always remain redirected then you need to go into the setup menu by pressing and holding the menu button. The menu you want is the advanced video settings menu.

    Regards,
    Andrew.

    Now we're on the subject:
    I succesfully found all AVR300 remote codes except MENU HOLD.
    Since my Pronto emulated pda can only hold (=repeat) a key erratically I wonder how the hold sequence works in hex form, so I can try and reproduce it?

    In future firmware updates it may be usefull to give that menu a save option also. Maybe not. I got around it by not running any of my component video through the AVR300. Anways my problem is solved. thanks :)

    I think the purpose of the menu is (quoting the manual) to use for day-to-day changes, so IMO it's meant to be temporarily...funny enough though my balance settting is kept...
    Slightly off topic I had some grudges about how Arcam restricts biamping to the fronts, but on second thought it's better than the dangerous and misleading way Denon incorporated its internal biamping...and it hummed too!
