A note of thanks, a question, and a suggestion.
First, thank-you for your REW guide--it is what eventually pushed me over the edge into a "you can do this" mentality. I have followed so many tutorials (typically involving linux installations) that skip important steps I have become weary of making the attempt as it usually involves working backward when something doesn't happen as explained in the guide, and then I have to teach myself why certain file permissions or ownerships are not being assigned as the guide assumes, etc. Frustrating, and takes so much longer than it first appears. Your guide is well designed and quite exhaustive.
A question regarding the following: you suggest using HDMI1 and HDMI2 with PLII engaged to set the center channel. Would using HDMI3 in direct mode return a different level, assuming you mute L and R? Is there a reason behind doing it the PLII way instead?
And finally, as a suggestion from someone who gets lost easily, when you describe Markus767's method of setting levels via RTA, you use the phrase "adjust 60Hz or 30Hz". It could be clearer as to how
you are adjusting these frequencies. I simply adjusted the physical gain knob on my sub to achieve this, but have no idea if that is what's intended.
