I have just been round to a mates house and he is using an Onkyo TX-NR807 that seems to be able to do things that my Yamaha RX-V1900 can't? I'll apologise in advance as I haven't kept up to speed with AV equipment advances since I purchased this amp in 2008 along with my Sony KDL-46W5500 TV. His amp was able to auto detect and switch inputs as he switched on other equipment and he was also able to control volumes, i.e. when he pressed the volume on his new Youview remote it adjusted the volume on his amp, the same when he uses the TV remote. He also said that when he switched of the TV it also switches off the amp which seems a good idea as mine is always left on when I switch the TV off. I hope I haven't misunderstood his setup. He maintains its all to do with the amp but when I compare the spec of my amp against his, the features are almost similar. My question is, are these features on the TV or on the Amp?
