What puzzles me is why it should be necessary. Assuming you have run...

The reason you can’t go beyond -2dB on the MV is all that positive trim you've applied. Think about it: if the maximum the unit can go is, say, +15dB on the MV but you apply loads of positive trim,...

Why not just use the Denon save/load thing to save the original configuration/calibration? (You do have a Denon I assume as you are in this thread?). Then just reload it to change back.

I have to admit to scant knowledge of 4K and all its machinations. 4K is just something that isn't on my personal radar. If it comes along, and all new BD discs and BD players come with it, then of...

I know that batpig fully understands this, so I am sure he didn't say what you think he said. But no doubt he will clarify it for himself.

You've missed that Atmos is fully backwards compatible with legacy AVRs. Any AVR that can process TrueHD will work with an Atmos Bluray.

I can see your point Hugo, but if we're waiting for 4K video, then it's all doomed! ;)

It's not the BD side of things that is of concern IMO - it's original movie content. So far, for DTS, it numbers 0.
