I am wondering if I am so dumb, or I have a lemon in the house, and the clicking is still present too.
One more thing I wish to ask, where is the bitstream output setup on the PS3 Slim please? I couldn't find it.
needless to say I am new at all this, and having tons of issues.
thanks for all the help
Hi .... I have had some of the same issues in the not-so-distant past with my 807 ... perhaps I can give you a few ideas:
1- Audyssey will hang up on you like this if you do not have your speakers connected to the exact correct places on the 807, depending upon how many speakers you are trying to run ... see page 18 of your manual and look carefully at where your surround speakers should be connected on the 807. A lot of people will try to run 5.1 but will connect the rear surround speakers to the wrong place on the 807 ... then try to run Audyssey and get an error just like what you have described. Do not feel bad ... I did this too.
Also be really certain that the positive / negative sides of your speaker wires are all really correct with your speakers at every connection. Sounds logical ... but it just might make all the difference here ....
2- your subwoofer is fine. Bet ya a triple cheeseburger (and a 94 0z Coke). You need to set up the crossover for it correctly .... and suddenly it will have much more output.
You might try this: go into the Speaker Setup menu and select "Speaker Configuration" ... once you are there, you can select "Full Band" for your front large speakers (assuming they are large speakers) ..... if you have a large center speaker, you could probably also set it to "Full Band" and be ok ..... it gets a little tricky here, because if your have smaller speakers with a limited range as surrounds, you will need to set them differently. For example, all I have at the moment are Aperion 4 series surrounds and right now I have them set at 60Hz ...... and they sound pretty good ..... The point is to have your speaker crossovers set correctly so that the correct information is sent to your subwoofer.
I have a 150 watt sub and I have it set at 90Hz ..... I made this change just the other day, and now my sub seems to have better output ..... try that and see how it works for you ....
OK ... here is something interesting ... go back out to the Main Menu ..... from the Main Menu you can go to selection #3 Audio Adjust ... go into that ... and go into #6 LFE Level (this is an adjustment for your sub) ..... once there, you will see many selections:
DTS-HD Master Audio
OK .... so you can adjust each one, right? Well ... I changed them all to the same setting .... which is just one click away from 0db ... at the 0db setting I just made one click over to the setting that looks like an 8 sideways with a minus sign right next to it (what is that called, anyways??? ) The difference I have noticed is that now I have much more subwoofer output over all .... I wonder if it will work for you the same way???? I hope you might have a moment to get back with me and tell me how that works for you ...
So to recap .... your system needs calibration and if Audyessy will run for you, it will do all of this for you and your life will be good .... otherwise what i have provided here is a basic idea on how you can adjust things your self ....
make sure that you focus your speakers [at you] correctly (page 17) before you run Audyssy again ... and remember to place that little Audyessy mike at as close to ear level in your seating position(s) .... I heard of one guy who placed it at the front of each speaker .... noooooooooooooooo ..... no. Just put the mike where you intend to sit (up to 8 spots in your room) ....
I know all of this can cause a lot of stress, especially if it is all new to you .... but do not worry ... it will work, and you will be a happy person ...... just got to take a little time and dial things in a little ... everything will be ok.
I hope this all makes some sense and helps your situation .....
