Thanks for your post. It fixed the white line when I used the newer firmware; I went directly to 8827a.
One last issue with the 58av that has always been there:
When I play SACDs, the LFE seems 10dB too high. This occurs when I tell the Onkyo 905 receiver to set direct delay enable to off for DSD. The manual states that this setting bypasses the internal DSP. When I press direct in this mode, the Onkyo then shows DSD Direct. While the Onkyo 905 does allow for DSD LFE to be offset (as it does for truehd, dd, dts etc...), setting delay enable: off bypasses this feature. Anyone know if setting changing this to delay enable on means the DSD stream does not go from DSD to analog (ie not DSD to PCM to analog)? The manual only mentions that only is pureaudio or direct will the DSD not be converted...
Anyways, I suspect the 58av is raising the LFE level by 10dB when I send DSD over HDMI or use the analog outputs. Anyone else notice this too or am I crazy? Any chance there is a setting I'm missing on the 58av?
UPDATE: I have played more with the receiver. I can confirm that when I use analog multichannel inputs, the bass is 10dB too high also. On the onkyo, I have to adjust the LFE sensitivity for the analog channel up 10dB (there is a special setting that lets me select 0, 5, 10, 15dB. This doesn't change the main level of the subwoofer in speaker set up, but rather how bass is handled from the DVD player in multichannel analog. In the DSD Direct mode with the delay enable setting to off, I find there is no way to fix the bass except manually turn the sub down 10dB using the remote (ie changing the speaker level for the sub)! However, if I let the DSP do processing (ie leave DSD delay enable set to ON) it must automatically compensate for the 58av's LFE 10dB increase because you definitely cannot hear it. My receiver levels are calibrated using the audyssey mic, so I am confident that it is not the level setting in the receiver.
There seems to be a thread from 2006 talking about this issue on several receivers and DVD players: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&highlight=905
, but I really need to know if other 58av users have the same problem and if so which 58av firmware and receiver they are using. I think the issue is caused by the fact that DTS and DD LFE channels are recorded -10dB below the other channels, but with SACD, they are not. Thus, I think either the receiver or the player is boosting the signal. Since the analog output from the player has the same issue of +10dB for the LFE, I believe it's the player.
