01. When playing Resistance Fall of Man (PS3 game) it is in 7.1 ... actual 7.1 and my reciever (the 1700) plays this wonderfully, but just wondering something.. the little icons that display what speakers are being used... R, C, L and so on.... when 7.1 is in full use it will show 6 icons... the middle bottom one is SB.... so im guessing depending on what you have it set up for in the menus (in my case the extra 2 speakers for 7.1 set ups) it will show that one icon to show you its 6.1 and 7.1?
Its a little confusing I know but I cant think of a better way to ask it. Im sure the reciever is gettgin 7.1 channels because when Im playing I can hear individual sounds from each thing, like I can blow something up and turn around and around it pans from each speaker nicely...
So am I correct?
02. Also when playing 5.1 channel movies (pretty much all of them) the correct thing to do for 7.1 set ups is to have it set to MPCM+Movie PLXX... right? It sounds right, it adds sound into the back 2 speakers nicely. Just wondering.. thanks, I love this reciever.
03. somewhat of a side note.... but it applies, I have a HD-XA2 HD DVD player and the 1700, I have it set to PCM for both optical and HDMI.. should I change it?
