Something's odd. I had an 8uk, and I now have a 10uk, and I had the TY-FB8HM with the 8UK, and also with the 10UK, and then I switched to the TY-FB10HMD Dual HDMI board with the 10UK display, and all those combinations worked with the AV7005. Maybe something odd with the 9UK series?If you still had the AV7005, I'd recommend hooking up the composite output, and making sure the 7005 was outputting 1080i. Anyway, the 7701 is a good choice too.

I have an Oppo 95 direct to my Panasonic plasma, audio HDMI to the 8801, and no issues either.I also have from my 95 to the 8801 to the display, because I wanted to test the difference, and I have video conversion off as well, so no OSD display.

That's one option I wish Audyssey had: the ability to limit the freq adjustment to say less than 500 Hz or something. Not because I don't see the value of also modifying higher freqs, but because I think it would be interesting to compare full range Audyssey vs less than 500 Hz to hear exactly what it's doing higher up.

I had a Yamaha AVR a long time ago (as a pre/pro), and I really liked it, so I still have a soft spot for them. I also just recently looked at the CX-A5000. But for the life of me, I simply cannot understand the rational behind YPAO *not* EQ'ing low freqs. Personally, I view that as a requirement. Sure, you can get a 3rd party solution, but that's more money, and it still might not do as good a job as Audyssey.

This is exactly how I do it with the BDP-95, the 8801, and my plasma. No handshake issues here.

Yamaha has had a lot of those DSP modes a lot longer ago than that. I had an RX-V793 from the late 90's that had the Village Gate mode, Sci Fi Adventure, etc. That AVR was from the time when DTS was just just being introduced, and while it had DD, Yamaha hadn't yet gotten DTS into their mainstream units yet. I'm talking *before* DD EX, and DTS-ES !!I personally always liked playing with the Yamaha DSP modes. Depending on the source material, music or movies, and my...

Reread what I wrote. I never said how audible I thought it might be. Just that it obviously does matter to some people.

"So what" ? "Arbitrary" ?The fact that Marantz/Denon downres's and Anthem doesn't, obviously matters to some people.
