Yeah I've played with almost every audio related setting on the Roku. I eventually gave up -- when I want "critical" viewing (as critical as you can get from streaming services) I also have Netflix,...

If Audyssey still shows as active and you can select Dynamic EQ, Dyn Vol etc. then everything is fine.

I think it's a weird HDMI handshake issue. I have a similar problem with my Roku 2XS. Never had an issue with my older Denons but when I swapped to a new X5200W all of a sudden the screen would go...

The sub is ED A250
Room is about 1600 cuft. (18'x12'x7.5')
MV = -22dB
Audyssey set sub level = -11.5 dB
Sub boost = +3.5 dB (using channel level. So effective sub level = -8.0 dB)

What subwoofer is it and how big is the room? And at what volumes levels does it happen? Does the noise disappear at lower volumes?

The chart at the end is correct. DSX is unable to matrix surround back channels on its own. Previously you could piggyback it on top of PLIIx to get 11.1 playback but it doesn't work anymore wigh DSU...

They're still there in the same place -- go back to Audyssey setup and there is a "check results" menu.

Just note that these graphs are a crude representation and of limited usefulness.

I'm not sure how I can say it more clearly (again) -- an object audio mix doesn't have a channel count. So there is no distinction between an 7.1.4 Atmos mix or a 6.1.4 Atmos mix. There is just an...

Where did you pull 6.1.4 from??? An object audio mix wouldnt have a channel count.

Also DTS:X is not a theatrical format. If they mix it via DTS tools it would be an MDA mix. That's separate from...

Seriously. So many variables at play between speakers, room layout, and the listener themselves. The whole Denon and/or Audyssey takes away the flies conspiracy is ridiculous.

The X4100 will sound better because of the superior XT32 calibration software; your 2311 has only basic MultEQ. However, I wouldn't expect a HUGE difference and you are only running a 5.1 setup...

I don't know it for a fact but, considering that most receivers can't even send a digital signal to other zones, I'm comfortable assuming it's a separate "pure" analog path to Zone 2/3.
