Are you sure about that?

Seems to me that the chosen speaker locations would only affect Atmos/DSU processing.*

I don't believe Audyssey knows anything about speaker location other than...

Well you didn't say what receiver you have. At current it's available only for the Denon 7200 and the Marantz 8802.

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).

How are you running TF +...

Part of the confusion here is Denon receivers allow you to select "Dolby Digital + DSU" as a surround mode even when there are no speakers to upmix (like playing a 5.1 source on a 5.1 setup). I have...

You're fine, you already have three externally amped channels so there are sufficient internal amps available for the other 8 speakers.

You need to change the settings on your players. It's not the processor, all it can do is play what you give it.

By all accounts Seasons 1 and 2 have almost no overhead action. So I suspect the upmixed version will actually be more impressive.

Filmmixer assures us they learned as they went on and the Season...

Assuming you don't have a Datasat the Center Height position isn't even an option on D+M processors. Max they can do is 5 heights with VOG.

Bottom line -- it's really just arithmetic.

The receiver has 9 amps. It can power 11 channels at a time. But you can connect 13 total speakers.

So if you want to hook up 11 speakers you need...

Prior to the update, with Neo:X only able to do wides + front height, it would automatically do "9.1.2" upmix with wides/heights. However, DTS:X/Neural:X is like...

I doubt it, Zone 2/3 processing is a separate signal path and main zone settings typically have no effect.
