What is "HPOut"? We would expect to see "HDMI1" as the output. How is the computer connected to the AVR?

Edit: Why not take screen captures on the computer, rather than cell phone pics?

You are correct that I am currently only running a 7.1 configuration, and have no plans on expanding. I was just expressing an opinion, based on previous experience with heights (and wides), that I...

Yes, of course, you MUST turn off Audyssey. But that is not all. You must also manually set all channel trims and distances to zero, since the 88A establishes its own trim and distance settings.

I don't see why twisted or straight would make any difference. With the cables that I cut in half, I have no idea whether the cables inside the protective sheath are twisted or straight.

To be honest, I am not sure rear surrounds are more important than front heights. If it were me, I would try both ways, conduct some careful listening tests, and then make a decision. I say this...

The 88A includes the "plug". The balanced connection doesn't care whether the wiring is a solid wire or a stranded wire, if that is what you mean. Those of us who have used the Phoenix connectors...

Well, you can do what you want. But in my case, I gain-match the subs so they play 75dB at the MLP, run the REW EQ tool, load the EQ filters into my MiniDSP 2x4, run the room calibration, and as a...

Let's start from the final objective. After running room correction, all speakers should measure 75dB at the MLP. (This is before you turn up the sub trim/gain as per your preference).

You will need to disconnect the front speakers to get a sub-only measurement. That's where running an external amp comes in handy--it is easier to turn off the amp, rather than unplugging the...

You can use HDMI3 for all three measurements. Note that if you do use HDMI4, the output should be 10dB higher (LFE gain), but the shape of the measurement will still be the same.

Sorry, that is not what the guide says. If you want to measure center+subs, then you should set the center to "small", and output the REW signal to the center channel only. Bass management routes...

Nothing is a substitute for experimentation. Try the tweak. If you see improvement, good. If not, return the distances to what they were. Our speculation means nothing.
