I'm not getting what you are trying to say. You want to use arc to feed tv audio into 809?

Please turn off caps lock, it is considered rude..
As to your settings I generally decode the sources native setting, Dolby digital or the like for multi channel content. For two channel source material I use Dolby PLII to matrix faux surround sound. Applying THX DSP's on top of the source decoding is a preference thing. Try it on different source material to see if you like it.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!

For movies, I always put the receiver in straight decode mode. That is as the sound is recorded in the source i.e. DD/DTS. Onkyo 809 doesn't use the same nomenclature for Straight, just play a movie (DD or DTS) and toggle through the movie modes. Leave it where you see DD or DTS. For any other source, it's all personal preference. Use the one your ears like.
