So i have the ''onkyo tx sr 308'' receiver. I was watching some live sports today and wanted to find out what is the best listening mode to use for watching sports (especially soccer) on my 5.1. Using HDMI. Should i use Music , Game or Movie mode on my remote control ? And which mode ? PL , direct , neo6,etc?

Whichever mode you like better is the best for you. there is no "one size fits all" surround mode.

I only watch sports in HD so the Dolby Digital 5.1 broadcast is my preference.
