What does the INFO button display when in Stereo mode? Does it show the sub channel as active? Or on the front panel display if you have it set to display the output signals?

Have a couple HDMI-CEC questions/issues.

I have the X1000 connected to my Sony TV. If I go to the menus all the HDMI control stuff is turned on, when I go to enable devices it scans, but sees nothing for the receiver.

If I turn on my XBMC media center (going through the X1000) and rescan, the TV sees both the XBMC media center and the X1000. I can then use my TV remote for the X1000 volume. Why is it not seeing the X1000 unless I have a CEC enabled device connected into the X1000? It's like the X1000 CEC isn't enabled unless there is an active CEC device turned on connected into it. Shouldn't I be able to watch my DirecTV and use the standard tv remote to change the X1000 volume?

Thanks!
Bill

I have a Denon E300 receiver. Just purchased a new subwoofer, BIC PL-200, and did a 6 position Audyssey calibration using giomania's Audyssey Setup Guide and BATPIG'S "DENON-TO-ENGLISH DICTIONARY" SETUP GUIDE AND FAQ.
I have an old pair of JBL 940T fronts, a JBL EWS25C center, and JBL ES20 surrounds. The 940Ts are 4 ohm speakers and have an efficiency rating of 94 db. The receiver has no problem running them. It has never run hot, shut down, or lowered the volume. The problem is that the fronts are a bit too loud. Audyssey set the Fronts at -12.0 db (maxed out), Center at -9.0 db, Surrounds at -5.5 db, and the Sub at -5.0 db (volume set at 1/3).

In Manual Setup I set all speakers to small and the crossovers to 80 hz.

You can change all the speakers volumes manually in the menu: Speakers-Manual Setup-Levels-Test Tone Start; but my fronts are already maxed out at -12.0 db.

Setting Dynamic EQ to ON and -Ref Low Offset to 0 - 15 db (depending on the source) helps.

I could replace the 940Ts with 8 ohm speakers but they are in excellent condition and sound great.

Any suggestions on how to lower the volume of the fronts or just let Audyssey do its thing and use Dynamic EQ; or raise the center, surrounds, and sub volumes?

Then simply lower the master volume and if you need to adjust the other speakers upward... do so.

Hey I'm curious. Generally what is the best shape to make when doing Audyssey sweeps? Since my couch is near the back wall I do 6 spots making a rectangle. No spot more than 1.5 feet from the next. But after I got my RS-41s I redid it and this time did 8 spots in sort of a cross. I did one spot as far back as I could be behind the LP. And did 3 forward, and 5 accross the LP. It seems to sound even better.

The reason I did this was because the sound sounded "lacking" perhaps because it thought the LP was closer than it was maybe? Or maybe just my imagination. But I think I like testing so far early results using all 8 spots is great. But I did want to ask here what sort of pattern/area do you find best. Especially with space lacking and not a lot of space "around" the MLP.

Specific pattern is not as important as using a mic boom stand or camera tripod, ensuring no point is closer than 2' from a back wall, ensuring all points are 2-4" above a high back couch, ensuring points 2-7 are within 2'-3' of the #1 position, and also varying each position up or down an inch or two.

maybe that's why it helped, a couple positions were different heights. However I had to go about 1' from the back window. Oh well, thanks for that.

Would it matter if the stand itself is between the speakers and the mic?
