I am new to the HT-S790 but enjoying it very much. I am curious to what listening modes you use for the following

Listening to CD's
Watching DVD movies non-HD
Watching DVD movies in HD
Watching normal TV shows
Watching sports such as football

Can't remember the exact indicators, as I'm not at home right now.

CDs - Dolby IIx Music, Orchestra or Unplugged, depending on what it is.
DVDs - DTS Neo 6 if DTS available, otherwise Dolby Digital 5.1 (I don't have HD)
Normal TV - IIx Movie
Sports - Direct

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

1. Analog Multichannel with SACD hi-rez; digital dts hi-rez multichannel; Stereo, PLIIx-Music, Neo:6 music, All Channel Stereo, Unplugged, Studio Mix.
2. dts when available, when not available DD, PLIIx is a last choice.
3. same as#3
4. All Channel Stereo, TV Logic
5. Stereo, All Channel Stereo--try both of the PLIIx settings for stadium sound, too. They may be surprisingly effective.

I took a speed-reading course and read "War and Peace" in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.
