So I am thinking of going back to 'Direct' mode so that no audio post-processing is done for blu-rays. What mode should I use?
The manual says this about Direct Mode:
In this mode, audio from the input source is output without surround-sound
processing. The “Sp Config” (presence of speakers), “Sp Distance” and
“A/V Sync” settings are enabled, but much of the processing set via HOME
I assume that my crossover settings would still be in effect in 'Direct' mode, even though it doesn't say specifically in the manual?
The other option would be to set it at 'Multichannel'.
However, the manual only has '5.1' listed as the sole input source, but with a 3.1, 5.1, and 7.1 speaker layout. (I have 7.1).
Lastly, I noticed that my receiver has a 'Straight Decode' option, which isn't even mentioned AT ALL in the manual.
