1. The concept of the RS20i is a bit different as you assume. Dirac is applied to all output ports and you can't have it on specific channels. It applies to all channels but you can have about 20 storage spaces for different measurements. I use it to switch from no screen and with screen e.g. but with the same set of speakers.
2. I have some addendum's to the 1.02 manual, describing the additions. There is no full manual, as far as I am aware of. However, if you have your RS20i, you can ask Datasat directly for additional manuals, above 1.02. Or I can sent them to you.
3. The digital output can be switched on and off independently. But there was a limitation in the resolution in kHz, if you use the digital output, if I remember correctly. It should be in the 1.02 manual.
4. As far as I know, not. The volume control applies to all outputs.
Thanks for the input! Once I have the RS20i I will ask Datasat but until then I would appreciate if you have additional manuals you can send to me so I can do some planning and make sure everything works the way I expect it to.

Thanks for this, this is what I thought based on what I read in the thread so far.
So, hypothetically, is the following scenario possible?
Virtual input "A"
-Uses HDMI in 1 from Oppo BD player
-Applies Dirac curve "X" for input channels 1-12 (7.1.4 configuration)
-applies PEQ and x-over appropriate for room and speakers in "Room A"(are these applied to the input channels or output channels?)
-These 7.1.4 input channels are mapped appropriatly to output channels 1-12 for speakers in "Room A"
Virtual input "B"
-Uses same HDMI in 1 from Oppo BD player
-Applies Dirac curve "Y" for input channels 1-12 (7.1.4 configuration)
-applies PEQ and x-over appropriate for room and speakers in "Room B"
-These 7.1.4 input channels are mapped appropriatly to output channels 13-24 for speakers in "Room B" (OR digital outputs 1-12, but with the amps for Room A turned off so that both rooms aren't "live"
Note that I don't actually have full 7.1.4 configurations in each room... just throwing out a hypothetical. If theabove scenario works I don't see why I couldn't configure one room for 5.1 and the other for 7.0.4 if I wish.
