I don't use the movie DSP modes, but I leave extended surround set to PLIIx, so that 5.1 movies get expanded to 7.1.

I also don't use any of the DSP's for movies or music. They all sound rather gimmicky to me. If bored it can be fun to scroll through them to hear the differences, but beyond that I just leave them alone. I just let the native Dolby and DTS do their job...... and they do it well!

I always find it odd that people want to mess with a professional audio engineers work. They are experts in audio, mixing & mastering on very expensive equipment, professionally tweaked and edited for just the right sound and timing, auditioned by the director of the movie...... and then someone with a basic HTIB system is going to second guess all that and choose some DSP that introduces a different "affect" into the audio.

^ To be fair, some of the DSP modes are supposed to reproduce music as you would actually hear it live in specific venues (based on real measurements of the reverb etc.). But I still don't use them .
