Wow what agreat forum guys, I have a crap load of questions.
First my set up.
I have a new Samsung HD 52'' the works, PS3,HDTV,Paradigm Monitor 3'z speakers (no surround sound speakers just fronts) Velodyne DLS 4000 Sub everything ran with HDMI and now my new 3310ci.
I need some serious help with set up or a pinpoint where to get started. Talk about a crazy reciever! Its like looking at a jumbo jet. I'm so intimidated by this unit. I know I have the speakers set up fine cuz it sounds great but one thing Ive notices is when the volume is all the way off (0 db) I don't get any solid volume till around -45.5 db. Is that normal or should it be very load by then?
Like I said, I won't have a killer surround sound unit till next xmas as I was given the ok from the wife to buy a 6-7k$ unit next year so I guess I'll wait and run my 8 year old Paradigms for now.
What I need from anyone that can help is some step by step set up info. Eg.
Surround Parameter,Audyssey,Auto delay,manual set up,input setup and so on.
On a final note. The one thing Iv'e notices is when I change the channels on my bellexpressview satillite TV my sub will work once in awhile and when playing movies on my PS3 I have no base at all. I also noticed on the front for the 3310 when looking at it, changing the chanal the indication of surround sound will change pending my channel when watching TV. Eg. I just switched to sirius radio on my TV and its just showing 2 front speakers (no sub) so the sub don't work. Then I switched to the Hockey game on TSN its shows all 5 speakers with sub and the sub fires up right away What the hell?
Guys sorry for the long rant but thats just some of the questions. I feel so stupid with this new unit as it looks like a beast! Thanks to all in advance! Cheers
