So, I've had this running for a few hours now. I have a few basic questions, and hopefully I don't sound too dumb
My Setup is as following, all using HDMI:
PS3 -> Receiver -> TV
Cable box ->Receiver ->TV
I have 2 Fronts, 2 surrounds (as defined by the diag in the manual), 1 Center, 1 Sub, and 2 Front high's.
1. PS3 settings:
The audio output under video settings, should that be set to Bitstrea or PCM? The PS3 is connected via HDMI ofcourse.
2. Receiver settings:
- While watching TrueHD movies, as part of the listening modes on the receiver, should this be set to Multich or to PLIIz Height?
- It does seem the receiver can support 2 front high's & 2 back surrounds since there are different plugs, and I can enable it from the speaker setting screen. You just can't have rears + front high's + zone2 since it shares front high with Zone 2 . Now, which of these is more effective? Should the fronts be at the same place where the front's are only higher?
- Is it possible to setup the receiver in a way that I do not have to turn it on to watch regular tv thru the cable box everytime? While messing around with the receiver last night, I was able to set it so that i turned the TV, Receiver, and cable box on. Then turned the receiver off and still got audio + video on the TV. Somehow in that process I lost OSD of the menu and I reset the receiver to factory default. I can't seem to get it back
Any help would be appreciated
