I use Direct for all Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Blurays.

Signals get crossed and the balance distorted by internal incoherence.

Having a 7.1 system utilizing WIDE setup mode, I use either NEO:X or Audyssey DSX.

Wake up to music.
Hi Guys. Does anyone know how to automatically turn this unit on to a certain digital audio input? Maybe an android wake on Lan app that has an alarm / automatic on time?
What I'm trying to do is wake up to bbc radio. I use the iPlayer radio app and tune in on android that have alarm features, but I can't figure out how to then turn on the receiver automatically.

I prefer the ProLogic IIz with my Front High speakers. I find that this gives me a very balanced and enveloping experience in all types of situations so I actually never change it!

This was my preferred listening choice as well, DVD's, gaming, sports, etc...
I got my first BluRay player in the Xbox One, so I have not watched many BR discs, yet...but I have the One set to 5.1 Uncompressed, and the Onkyo's listening mode to multichannel.

I have side and rear speakers in addition to front LCR, so I use IIx. I have experimented with all the Neo and THX stuff but IIx sounds best with 5.1 material. For music, I may use All Channel Stereo or one of the IIx music modes, depending on how the room is being used.
