I had a potential customer ask me about this in regards to his Yamaha RX-V871.
He was told that the AV would "pass through" when the unit was in standby mode, so that you don't have to always use the system speakers. The pass-through would use the TV speakers, and everything else, cable, DVD etc, would work normally.
I saw a reference (not an explanation) to it in the manual, and I googled it and found a bit more, but I want to know more before I tell him it is what he's looking for. Just wondered if anyone uses Yamaha and is familiar with this.
I do use Yamaha, but have not really tried it due to no one asking for this feature. However, when in training I do remember the rep demonstrating that it will in fact pass the audio AND video through to the TV while it is off. I just do not remember if you had to enable this feature in the menu or not. This was with the Aventage line though.
