Are the programs that you're watching actually broadcast in Dolby Digital with more than 2 channels? If they have PCM stereo or Dolby Digital 2.0 audio then I believe that's all you'll get.

Wireless versus wired may not matter. The only way to be certain is to try it both ways. The more variables you can eliminate, the closer you'll get to the cause (hopefully!).

I don't seem to have that problem. My W850A is connected via a wired ethernet cable. Are you using wireless?

The Technics SL-D202 would be my first choice, assuming that it's in good working condition. Second choice would be the Pioneer. Both are direct-drive turntables with S/J-style arms that will...

Onkyo warranties are not transferable to a new owner. Seems to be common to most brands, unfortunately.

Huh. Well, I know that I had it working at one point. But I just tried it again and ARC isn't working now. Not a big deal to me as I don't use the TV's apps for my streaming needs. That's what my...

I have it working with my Sony KDL65W850A and RX-A2040. There might have been other settings that I changed but have forgotten. The Yamaha AVRs aren't exactly user-friendly to set up properly.

It's happening here too. 1080p keeps resetting to 720p, and then I need to force reboot the box to get the 1080p option back. I've tried the 1080i option and have found that when so configured, the...

I'm testing Party Mode on the RX-A2040. When enabled, it duplicates the main zone audio to zone 2 (the main zone audio is a stereo track in this example). This also causes the main zone to switch...

I haven't noticed any problems -- but I rarely watch sports. I suspect that poor encoding quality/low bitrate of the video is contributing to what you're seeing.

The "CK-20" looks to be a Dual 1219 turnable in a CK-20 plinth. That's a pretty nice piece, at a reasonable price.

You can't measure a speaker's impedance with a DMM. You're measuring DC resistance, not impedance. Still, the DC resistance is usually a few ohms at most. Are the speakers working?

The Lepai is an interesting option. But there's a reason that it's so cheap -- low build quality and low power (the 15W power rating is over-stated). Also, I believe the USB input is limited to...
