With the feature of course onboard and built into receivers as part of their "nature," I was wondering how many of you actually utilize your surround AVR's tuner...

My wife is the only person that can figure the thing out,LOL. I couldn't care less for a tuner.:R
You don't know how to operate your AM/FM tuner?

Do you just not like the radio?

I think it will be different for everybody....

If you have (like in my case, a dedicated room) the answer will be "NEVER".


But in the other hand, if you have everything setup in the living room, and just one AVR probably the answer will be from "YES" to "SOMETIMES" (that's my case with the AVR in the family room, I use it from time to time).

Like i said i couldn't care less for it. I didn't buy my system for listening to AM/FM.:eek:
I didn't imply you did; was just curious as to what you didn't like about AM/FM tuning.

I find it difficult to believe, though, that you could not figure out how to operate it before your wife could -- are you sure we're both talking about a radio tuner here?

Completely logical, 'sal; that's what's a bit "off-putting" with regard to running an AVR in a dedicated room -- that there is an unused onboard tuner. That's why I was curious about how folks used their tuners and why I created the thread; seems like a justification for dedicated rooms to only have power amps/separate processors instead of AVRs...:T

My wife is very smart women and being that i don't care for broadcast radio she figured out how to use it. And yes we are talking about a radio tuner.:scratch:

What does being "very smart" have to do with using a tuner? Just because you don't care for broadcast radio, I don't see the connection between that sentiment and not being able to figure out how to use it...:ponder: :scratch:

You said you find it hard to believe my wife figured it out before i did (which she did). And as i hope you are aware that some AVR's have very complicated setup procedures including the tuner section. :dontknow::crying:

Right -- and then you said that she's a very smart woman and that since you have little interest in broadcast radio, you let her take care of it...so I was wondering why one needed to be so smart to figure out a tuner section's operation and what not being interested in radio had to do with not knowing how to use one...

And as i hope you are aware that some AVR's have very complicated setup procedures including the tuner section. :dontknow::crying:
What!? "Very complicated setup procedures"?

No. That's news to me. :blink: :reading:

I think is cheaper to get and AVR instead of a processor and separate amps....at least to start :huh:

But, after a while when the upgraditis gets you... Who knows!!! :innocent:

There is to much back and forth going on with your threads, can't handle it. Is there somthing you are trying to acheive by this, what i say is what i mean and i know what i'm talking about just ask me.:rofl:

Indeed, 'sal. It is indeed cheaper to go this route, in general, but it seems "silly" to have a tuner section kind of "idiling" and not being used just because you had to get an AVR...know what I mean?

Not the place to have this discussion guys. Take it up in PM if you must, but remember, the rules still apply.

Marshall,

I was merely asking him to explain to me what he meant -- and I didn't understand what was meant by tuners being "complicated to set up"...:huh:

Just have to add... Todays newer AVR's depending on models, features and price do have complicated setup procedures I'll bet half the people in this forum have had some sort of trouble with setting some feature or 2 up on there AVR. OH yeah even with the owners manual.:nerd:
