The manual says setting it to 'on' turns off speaker settings (like 'large' and delay settings I presume?); and also turns off 'channel level processing' (does this just mean it turns off the gain you can set in the speaker setup?).
And what does it mean when it says 'the DTS recommended all-channel, full bandwidth playback'? (p. 41). Does that mean it is recommended to use this if you selects a DTS soundtrack?
Thanks in advance for any info.
This question was asked a few weeks ago, and I couldn't find an answer. I too am confused by p. 41 of the manual (I admit I'm probably in over my head when it comes to the 3910, which I set up last weekend).
The manual says that with Bass Enhancement set to off, the subwoofer will have no output. Is this only for certain discs? Here are the results I got while watching Shrek in Dolby Digital, using the 6 ch. output in all cases(testing with some bass heavy scenes):Source Direct ON (no bass enhancement by default)
- no subwoofer output.
- The manual says that source direct on enables DTS recommended all-channel full bandwith playback. Is this only for certain discs? I certainly was not getting anything out of my sub.Source Direct OFF, Speakers LARGE, Bass Enhancement OFF
- no subwoofer output, even though subwoofer was set to "yes" in speaker configurationSource Direct ON, Speakers Small, Bass Enhancement OFF or ON
- In this setup, I get output from my sub, regardless of the Bass Enhancement setting. Bass Enhancement boosts it, but it is definitely there even without bass enhancement, which seems to conflict with the description of the Bass Enhancement feature on p. 41, although again I can't really figure out what they're talking about.
So I'm sure I'm misinterpreting something, just not sure what. And what would be the preferred (i.e. most accurate) setup for a DD movie?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
