But I believe that during P10 power restore, the P10 will return to its original zone settings, meaning that if e.g. Zone A is set to programmed and not permanently on, zone A will not be powered automatically.
Maybe you are correct Frode. I am going to try this out. I generally leave my cd, pre amp and speakers on (Quads). So, if there is a power outage, the P10 will go out and when it comes back on, it will reboot to the original settings. In this case, it would be nice if it did not reboot like this but that the owner would have to manually activate the zones again to be on.
Though I will try this on zones that re not on like my amps and see if it reboots them to green instead of orange.
As a quad owner (and this is the only reason I have raised this issue), you do not want to have the power cut in and out a number of times in short bursts. this operation means that multiple current bursts from amps can fry the Quads in a short space of time.
I believe this is what happened to me (not any fault of the P10, it functions exactly as it was manufactured) thereby rendering my Quads to have all panels replaced with significant costs.
Thank you for your help as well Frode.
