Got a RX-V371 for my mom's home theater. Using 5.1 setup. Anyone know why 'STRAIGHT' mode would be ''stuck'' on when viewing 5.1 DD channels from a DVR connected via optical cable?
It wasn't stuck in that mode at first, I could change between DPL II Movie, Music, DTS modes etc. After going through various setup menus, I noticed that all of the sudden I could no longer change out of straight mode on certain channels. I can use all the DSP modes, and stereo, and enhanced stereo, but not the Dolby, etc. If I switch to a 2 channel stereo TV channel, I'm able to use the Dolby and DTS modes again- very strange!
I think I may have changed something in the setup options having to do with the DSP modes but changed it back to default.
I haven't dug deep into manual yet or resorted to customer support. Just hooked it up yesterday. I've owned a Yamaha RX-V661BL for many years so I'm very familiar w/ Yamaha receiver setup amd options, controls menus, etc. Very odd issue though.
Other than above issue, I'm very happy with the sound and features of this entry level AVR- it's a lot of receiver for the $$.
