I wonder if 7.1.4 vs 5.1.4 is another impacting variable? Correct me if I'm wrong but the tests of Marc's setup were in 5.1.4.

Surely someone with a 7.1.4 setup and the Last Witch Hunter BD can...

You are SOL unfortunately. ARC won't work as it can't pass hi Rez bitstream audio back through.

With a 4k bluray player you'd have dual hdmi outputs to accommodate this but with the Roku4 no dice.

No, XT32 can't really accommodate subs of drastically different quality, and it can't do a "split" where the lesser sub only handles mid-bass with the big sub landling low bass.

No he doesn't, because he is using outboard EQ (Dirac) so the speaker change in the processor doesn't matter. If he was using the built-in Audyssey then, yes, he would have to re-run Audyssey with...

Doesn't work like that on D+M receivers. It's a per input AND per signal type memory system. So the surround mode set for 2.0 is saved separetly from that for 5.1 inputs.

What you are missing is that the processor doesn't know that the speaker hasn't moved. It assumes it has because it's a different speaker location (as far as it's aware).
