The receiver should have a test sound for 5.1, either as part of an auto-cal feature or just a setting to manually calibrate your sound. Check your wiring and/or the settings because that's a 7.2...

Thanks. I'm hoping it's something amiss with KNTV and not my setup, which has been pretty much dead-on-balls for years.

But you have to pay for the One Connect box or what ever it is called which is another $300 or so. Some LG's are supposed to be able to be upgraded to fully compliant HDMI 2.0/HDCP2.2 with a board...

I have extra solid core CAT-6 cables already installed in conduit in case I choose to run HDMI over them in the future. 4k being mainstream is not going to happen for a long time.
