So I decided to replace my Sony 5800es with the 818 (own both, but did it basically for the Audyssey dynamic volume that the wife likes). After setting it all up (FL/FR/Center and highs through Emotiva, surrounds/rear surrounds through 818). I then went ahead and chose front highs in the amp section in the speaker set up. Running neo:x or PLllz should have the highs working correct?
I know there is a step on pg.49 in the owners manual (to choose which set of speakers you want to be prioritized to run first between SB/FH, FW, etc.). I can't get it to work. All I get is "not available" showing up on the front display. Is there something I am doing wrong? Those who run 9.1 or 9.2, did you do this step? Or did you just set the amp selection (to which set of speakers you wanted to run) and then just change the decoding. I'm just wondering if this step is necessary for the FH (or any set of speakers running of an external amp) to work correctly.
Thanks for any help
