Any news about HK's fix or their promise, at least?
My window is closing... I never brought back a thing requesting money back, only for exchange - is it the same provcess in BB?
My contact at H/K is still working on it. He's the vendor rep for Corporate, from what I understand...in other words, he's the one who is signing deals for product orders. He told me he's working on it, and I'm waiting to hear more from him. I know our BBY escalation team is pushing hard on their engineers, too.
I let them know that this thread and the Owner's Thread used to be much bigger, as well. I don't want them thinking they got 8 days of no complaints in here
As for the return process at BBY...box everything up (please don't forget the remote, that happens all the time) and just bring it back in. Tell them you're displeased with it and all of its glitches and bugs. When a product is returned we have to put tech notes in explaining exactly whats wrong. Then corporate goes over those daily to see what has problems.

BTW found another bug: if you turn your Radio to Manual mode, L7 disappears - it's selectable but clearly gone from your speaker, it's a clearly audible difference (no music from sats.) Turn back to Auto tuning mode again and voila', music is again coming from all your speakers.
In other words if you are like me, like to dial in your own stations instead of painfully going through all the crap your market offers in Auto mode then do it in Manual mode, save your presets then turn back to Auto to get Logic 7 working again.
Thats how my cable box works as well. If I enable surround sound (e.g.-Dolby Digital) then everything is sent as DD...including the stereo ones. So when I hit a "craptastic stereo" channel
I can only pick the various Dolby Digital modes.
I'll add that glitch to the first post, too.

Keep in mind as soon as the 360 turns on it will probably not be DD. Let it go to the dashboard and it should switch.
Correct. Every Xbox 360 game is mastered in Dolby Digital. The only exceptions to this are stuff from Xbox Live Marketplace...some of that stuff is just two channel stereo.
The start-up splash screen, though, is two channel PCM...which is why its occasionally getting cut off for some people due to the PCM lock issue.

it works correctly and sometimes
it doesn't! Sometimes surround modes are grayed out and sometimes there not??!!
Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but if the AVR is getting a Dolby Digital (or TrueHD, or DTS HD MA, etc.) signal it can't apply its own processing to it. Are you looking for something like the Yamaha's surround modes? Thats where it shapes the sound to resemble some famous venues (Hall in Vienna...there's a bunch of them). Or are you looking for something completely different?
