By the way, if you set distance and channel volume correctly in the player and run multi channel analog in bypass mode, you won't have to turn off MCACC when you use the BD, because in analog bypass mode the MCACC is switched off by default (it bypasses it).
I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "analog bypass mode". Is that in MCACC? I always turn off "stream direct" on all of my inputs. On MCACC I think I have it on "All Channel EQ" mode.
I think I found it:Using the multichannel analog inputs
If you’ve connected to the multichannel inputs on the rear panel (see Connecting the multichannel analog outputs on page 18), you will be able to select them as your input source.
See Using the Stream Direct mode below if you want to bypass the signal processing in this receiver for a pure analog signal.SD:3 ANA DIRECT
All analog sources are heard without any digital processing. All processing is done through the analog circuitry and the center channel, if present, will be sent to the front right and left
speakers (the channel level is adjusted automatically). With digital sources, playback is the
same as the NORMAL setting (above).
So if I set that input to Stream Direct 3, that will stay on the setting and keep the analog signal from being processed?
