got a little bit of a problem here...
when using my ps3 connected by hdmi, playing a game (and I think its a problem with movies, will check on that later), the sub is not used. At least, let me describe this:
I have the sub on the OSD set as 'Sub(LFE)', and my speakers as large, and the crossover at 40hz for the front (as high as 80hz on my rears). When I leave the settings like that, I get no sub usage during playback from the PS3, yet I do if I use the CD input (that is hooked up to my computer as the moment for mp3 playback, and I set 5ch stereo mode when listening to my mp3's).
I can get the sub to engage if I change the sub setting to 'Sub(L/R + LFE)', however I am worried that means the low-frequency effects that should be going to my fronts are now only going to my sub. I don't want large towers if they aren't going to be fully utilized. Is that what is happening? Or, is all the spectrum that is supposed to be played on the towers still getting played, just rather the lower bass effects are being sent to both the towers and the sub?
anyone got an idea of what I should do to fix this, if it even needs fixed?
btw: its an AVR-247, with a Paradigm PDR-10 hooked up to it, if that were to matter at all
