More power to people who can't see the difference between HD vs UHD (I am NOT being sarcastic). If that is the case with me, I could've saved about US$7000 this year alone.

I'm 100% sure. I upgraded my SC-85 to SC-95 because it can't pass through full-speed 18 Gbps HDMI 2.0 and also doesn't have HDCP 2.2

PS: SC8x CAN pass through UHD as long as it doesn't have copy...

I did the firmware update last week on my receiver and 2 of my clients' too. Don't know what it does. Strange that there is no documentation. Perhaps to fix Pandora's "server error" problem.

No full range speakers are really full range. Usually they are only flat down to 40Hz so I usually set the main speakers to small. Xover at 40 Hz and set the subwoofer on.

What do you mean by 3-channel? LCR and sub?

Go to speaker settings and choose 5.1, then disable the rear channels manually and set subwoofer to PLUS (NOT "yes")

It's not like you can't upmix DTS-HD using DSU :rolleyes:

If the TV senses a 4K signal, the scaler will not be used. The same goes with the AVR (or you can go to the setup menu and turn the AvR's video processing off)
