Dozer, when you run your automatic testing, is your room quiet other than the test tones running, basically, no other noises going on such as furnace running or other things that might affect it? Also make sure the test tones are coming out of the proper speakers as it does its thing. If all is good, it could be that you have a defective microphone possibly. Something doesn't sound right obviously. Mine seems to work fairly well in the auto mode, but even with that, I still prefer to adjust based on my own ears.
If you bought this new with warranty-or regardless of that, give Harman's tech line a call, they might take a bit to get back with you, but generally they should possibly give you some options/help.
I really like my BDS system, and while I utilize Martin Logan Motion speakers instead of Harman's speakers, it does the job very nicely and is a simple one-box solution that gave me the flexibility on the speaker end, versus say a Bose setup. Not bashing Bose, but for quite a bit less money, I ended up with a setup that sounds better and is as simple as the Bose, and more flexible to boot. Also, I think this little receiver sounds pretty darned good as well for music or video. Don't give up on it yet! Tim
