Movies, Music, and Games have separate settings. (I assume they process the sounds differently, but haven't tested)

Disturbing news, especially since one of my reasons for not looking harder at the Pioneer was support going forward with Onkyo. Hopefully a different outcome here than selling them to another brand.
