Nope. There should be no change to the stereo 2.0 being sent to the FL/FR speakers.

If you're in PLIIx movie mode any audio sent to both left and right will be rerouted (anchored) to the center channel. Music mode is different, try it.

Sometimes I'll listen to 2 channel streaming music sources with DTS NeoX Music. It doesn't touch the left and right channels but it does add a bit of center and surround

Thanks but I am specifically referring to TV shows where you would want the dialogue in the center channel and the 'side effects' in the front L/R. So music- game- and pure- modes don't apply.

My experience is that all the non-dialogue audio goes to the rear L/R. I actually thought (think?) it was a bug which would eventually be fixed in a firmware update, but it never was.

My experience with my X4000 is that the split is very program-dependent. Even on a single telecaster, like HBO, there is significant difference between programs. One particular commercial run often on CNN seems to be ALL rear channel!

I'm afraid there is no universal solution.

Well, since I had some unforeseen expenses come up recently. I had to adjust my budget for a new AVR. I wanted one of the new 2014 models that had bluetooth. Now I'm thinking, I haven't had it before, so I can deal with it, or I can get something like an x2000 and maybe add the bluetooth adapter, if I really want it.

Do these adapters need an external power source? I don't want any more little boxes with more little power bricks.


I really wanted 7 HDMI inputs, not including the front. I don't want a cable connected to the front.

Does this happen with all programming or just certain programs? This kind of steering could occur with a mono signal, since any "in phase" content in the L/R channels will collapse to the center. The steering looks for differences in the channels to maintain the stereo effect but if there are no differences (mono) it will push it all to the center.

I'm inclined to believe it's not a bug but the way that content is coming in. Try something else, like the stereo track on a good DVD or blu ray.

Thank you for the confirmation. My primary source here is Netflix though I also experience it with my kids DVDs

SD, it annoyed one of the clients in our remote control iPad app business so much that I had to add Center Channel Volume commands for him<G>.
