Newbie question on Surround formats.
I have a new VSX-521K. I also just received a BIC F12 from Provantage for the sub..Thanks to the advice in this forum, along with 2 in wall 8" fronts. This week I'll order an in wall Center and two 5 1/4" in wall Surrounds.
I've searched, and have not really found an answer to what my lack of knowledge question is.
With my receiver, how do I select the various Lossless formats, such as DTS-HD Master Audio and the others? Is this automatically selected based on the source? I also have a PS3 for the Blu-Ray, Dish HD DVR, and DVD recorder.
The AVR manual indicates my receiver is capable of these formats, but doesn't specifically explain how to select them other than indicating "...The proper decoding format will automatically be selected and shows in the display." Now I realize that sentence seems to be the answer to my question however, is it the type of thing where it will select the "best" format, ie: DTS-HD etc., and not say Pro Logic or something like that? Thanks for all the advice.
