    LOL, too late, it went back to the store from which it came (too expensive to file away for later) :)

    I tried a Harmony a couple years ago and it didn't play well with my computer :-/ I've heard that they've improved, but I don't know if I'm ready to test those waters again right now.

    I had no luck with those codes. The first one was the only one that the remote would accept (the others caused the amp button to flash repeatedly) but it didn't operate my cable box :(

    The receiver I had before this one was a Yamaha RX-V1000, if I recall correctly. It used to control my cable box/DVRs. I'm hoping that this was just an oversight in Yamaha's manual for the 663. I...

    BTW, how does the small vs large setting affect the calibration or the way the amp works? Does it increase power output to the speakers if they're set to large? What would changing them to small...

    I'm surprised I haven't received an RTFM before now ;-)

    I have done my best with the manual. It's not well-written (or well-translated) and even has some pretty egregious errors (like about a...
