"Difficult to set up --- may have design defect"2.5 starson by Tinkerer2
Pros: Advertised to be easily integrated with Samsung TVs, which are currently top-rated.
Relatively easy to connect.
Cons: Difficult to set up the advertised Anynet+ feature.
It appears that the HT-AS730S resets to FM function whenever it is turned off --- have to click several remote control buttons in order to start watching TV whenever it is turned on.
Summary: It may be that the problem is some kind of set up, but so far I cannot get this unit to "remember" its settings from when it was turned off last time. For instance, if it is turned off after TV watching, when turned on again it will be in FM MOVIE mode. Turning it on again requires pushing the "SAT" button in the remote control, and then push the "Input Mode" button twice to get to the correct input. This is annoying. I would appreciate some help from Samsung on this as I am considering returning the whole system because of this annoying "design feature".
