Thanks for the response. I wish I need what happened with my reception. Even Ion tv has a signal near me and was crystal-clear, now nothing. Really frustrating especially with NFL coming up soon.

I got around to playing with the settings and to be honest, the 7.1 stereo setting is probably good enough for our old shows which are only stereo to begin with. It sounds like it spreads the sound...
