Om Namo Narayana

Dear Sri Bhagavathotamas,
	While discussing with my friend(an advaithin), the topic of tirumala
deity cropped up. my friend said that it was emperumanar who chaned the
appearance of a swyampu ambal to resemble thiruvengadamudiyan. is it true?
	Is there any purana references to tirumala as any deity other than
thiruvengadamudiyan? 
	has emperumanar in any of his works said that he did something to
restore thiruvengadamudiyan to tirumala? if yes can you give me the
reference so that it is easy for me refute my friend.
	also can anyone tell me why smarthas refuse to accept
thiruvengadamudiyan as an incarnation of naryana?

adiyen,
acharya daasan,
Anand.
