I've got a 5.1 setup and when I get a DD signal in less than 5.1, mine defaults to PLII 5.1. I don't know if there is an easy way to change this to what you want to do? Since, nothing or little via TV is output at 7.1 and only 5.1, it must be just defaulting to your standard button choice?
How can I check if I am in the AUTO input mode ? Is there a setting that I can check ?
Should the receiver change automatically to PLII mode ? I am not sure how I would have chosen that behaviour - once again, is there a setting that I can modify ?
I don't want this receiver to fill all my speakers as what you said, there is no 7.1 DD broadcast available from any network. However, I want the receiver to default to 7.1 speakers when the signal is just that i.e. when I am playing BD with 7.1 DTS-HD MA or 7.1 uncompressed PCM.
I just want it to output whatever it receives on the input side of things - nothing more , nothing less
Unless, I override it. It seems that some channels are better than others, as it seems that receiver remembers certain channels and processes them correctly - but I don't think that this would be to the broadcast level ????
wabkab, it seems that my issue is similar to your epecially with DD two channel brodcast i.e. "when I get a DD signal in less than 5.1, mine defaults to PLII 5.1 "
except , mine does change to PLII 7.1 . How can I eliminate this very annoying behaviour as I don't want the receiver to mix for me.
I am really at a loss here guys
Please help. There must be some obscure setting, I believe.
