That's what I thought. I have the ability to bypass the 818 VP using a 'source>direct' mode and that's what I'm using.


Thanks for your help, Jarrod.

Disabling video processing on Mits front pj's

I would like to use the Onkyo 818 AVR to solely handle the VP in my system. Having the 818 and the HC7900DW both processing, seems to degrade the picture quality. I have turned it off on the 818...

Turning OFF Video Processor

I would like to try just the VP from the Onkyo 818 is there a way to disable it on the 7900? I have it turned OFF on the 818 as I found having both of them active degraded the picture, IMO.

They would both be active. And, to my surprise I find that I get a crisper, sharper picture on my pj by bypassing the 818 altogether as compared with source direct mode.

If I use the video processor in the 818 would that override the processor in my Mits 7900 projector or would they both be active? I'm currently using source>direct which turns off the 818 processor.

Getting your center speaker up higher would be my first goal. I use a guitar amplifier stand that is adjustable and it gets my center close to tweeter level with the front R+L speakers.

Thanks Keith.


I sometimes use NEO:X but I don't find it to be night and day better than DSX, if at all. I like what both of them do for my 7 channel setup using wides.

If using Dynamic EQ boosts the surrounds +2-3 dB and using DSX lowers them the same amount, would it be logical to conclude that if I have both of these options on, I would be back to where MultEQ...

The RTi8's were advertised as NEW, and they were. Box was factory sealed, a bit musty smelly though. The FXi surrounds didn't say new but they also were factory sealed.
