I'm trying to bitstream all my audio from MPC-HC and Reclock + Wasapi over HDMI to my receiver. Should I choose full-range speakers in the Windows 7 audio config or not? I don't want Windows messing with the audio and I can't tell which option is the right one for no interference.

"Full range" means "send all audio on this channel unchanged".

So if it is being bitstreamed I would assume the signal is being sent unchanged no matter what the setting is in the sound device setup.

Generally, you're correct: The "full-range" vs "satellite" setting is for analog
output. Now, you'll have to make that choice at your receiver (or whatever
decodes your bitstream'd audio.)

I'd leave them all full-range so that your receiver is the only component handling the bass management duties.
