I made an excel table from the settings.

Could someone please check these settings
And then I could try them.

Looks like this is the right thread to post this:

I'm having and issue with my 820.

The issue is when I connect any device to it's optical input. It displays that it is getting 48khz PCM and sounds great. The problem is when there is complete silence in the source (movie or otherwise), the AVR displays no input, and when the silence breaks, it again displays it is getting a PCM feed and sound resumes. However there is a tiny lag (milliseconds) before it locks onto the PCM input and starts driving the sound. This is not an issue for movies, as the lag is so short, you wouldn't notice. Movies rarely have total silence anyways.

The problem is when hooked up to a computer or gaming device. Simple Windows clicks and beeps are missed, or truncated. Gaming sounds that are preceded by silence like a single gunshot or foot step are often missed or truncated.

Does anyone follow what I'm describing? Anyone have similiar issues with their AVRs? Any work around? It seems like I need some way of keeping the AVR locked onto the PCM input even during silence.

I have some problems with my HDMI connection on my STR-DG720. Some times, it restarts every 5 seconds, or it doesn't feel the signal. the problem is on all hdmi inputs.

the amp is broken or it's something about the settings.

For some reason, when watching tv on the Tivo, I have to crank the volume on the receiver way up. When playing PS3 games, I have to turn it way down. The worst is blu rays, which overwhelm the room during action scenes but often have unintelligible dialogue for some reason.

I've tried scanning the forums for a solution, but I'm no expert with audio, and most of what I read about settings I don't really understand. Is this just a setting that I can correct? The PS3 is via HDMI and the Tivo uses optical audio.

If it helps, I originally thought it might be an issue with the HDMI vs. optical audio, but that wouldn't explain why BD movies play so much quieter than the video games on the PS3. Any ideas anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
I have the same problem with an 820 I just purchased second hand. I was watching "pixels" (PC interface to TV and 2ch sound to Sony via RCA) and I literally had the unit maxed (like 78?) just to hear the speech track but the bass in the action scenes would almost knock you over. I just got the remote off Ebay so Ill be playing with it to try and find the center channel setting. I dont have the auto-tune mic for it..anyone got one that I can borrow or rent for a day?
