When you toggle through the sound modes and go all channel mode, does sound come out of your back surrounds? (assuming those are the ones that aren't playing in 7.1 mode)

I get sound out of all 7 speakers. A couple of examples playing a 7.1 source (m2ts file channel check from Hunger Games):

All Channel: 7 Speakers
THX Cinema: 7 speakers. However the rear surround speakers share the sound with the side surround speakers (e.g., the same sound that comes out of RIght Surround comes out of Right Rear Surround and vice versa).
Pure Audio: 5 speakers. Rear surround speakers silent, the sound that's intended for them comes out of the side speakers.

So this makes me think it's something up with the input signal since it's being read and treated as 5.1.

Man that's weird. I honestly can't think of anything else. I hope someone else chimes in

Does any one know how to get feedback from the RS232 port. I can not get any return data. All my other RS232 controlled devices automatically returns data.

To answer my own question, it is possible. The settings that worked for me are either:

1. Hardware -> HDMI -> HDMI Control(RIHD) = On
or
2. Above setting disabled (Off) and Audio TV Out = On

Note that option #2 only works when Monitor Out is set to Both. #1 also works when it's set to Both(Main) or Both(Sub). The other advantage of #1 seems to be that the Speaker Setup menu doesn't get disabled.

New question: Does the OSD work for the secondary HDMI output? I can only get it to work with the primary HDMI.

Hi Prognathous, OSD appear only on HDMI Out Main.

Thank you JChin. I wonder what's the logic in this limitation? One would expect that sending the same signal to both outputs would mean just mirroring the same. I believe that's what a simple HDMI splitter would do.
