It's the SOURCE device, not the AVR. The source can only output one audio format at a time (same for video for that matter - a display that's only 720p-capable will also cause this type of issue). ...

My bar is ~12" deep and at table/counter-height (regular chairs, not bar stools) because my bar is on a second riser (total of 5.5' from the rear wall). There's 4' from the back of the bar to the...

Well, maybe the Watch version of the Lutron app makes some Homekit calls for other reasons, but it's almost certainly just using the same Lutron APIs to control RA2. What we need to hear is "RA2...

Ok, that's actually pretty clear - it's not HomeKit. Just the Lutron Home Control+ app with an Apple Watch version.

Bring all those chairs closer. 16' to the front row is way too far - you're just having to scale everything up larger to compensate for that distance. Try around 11' for your front row, and the...
