Your welcome and glad to read that it worked.
a few other questions i have
is it normal to get different speaker levels and distances each time mcaa is run? every time i run it the levels change.
If your not placing the mic in the exact same position (including height) then yes, you will get different results each time.
i have a ps3 slim i use for blu-ray. what is the best, bitstream or pcm and what would be the best setting to use for streaming Netflix? i noticed that dts-ma shows as multichannel on bitstream but if i change it to pcm it changes to dts-ma 7.1 channel.
Bitstream should give you DTS HD MA, DD TrHD plus PCM. PCM just outputs all formats as PCM. Technically they should all sound the same, but there are some that want to see DTS Master Audio on the front panel.
Sorry don't have netflix, so can't help there. You probably should bitstream from it too.
what gets you better simulated surround sound for watching tv that is just in stereo, dolby prologic or neo?
I use THX Cinema 2 for pretty much everything. If the AVR was not THX (I would not have bought it
) certified, I would probably use PLII. I used to like Neo 6, but went off that for some reason. THX Neural is good too, but THX Cinema 2 gives me the most enveloping sound field. I've had my AVR (VSX-1018) since Jan 09 and have not upgraded it as I have not found anything close for the same $$$. I need the pre-outs as I have active LCRs.
