What is the better down mix of the PCM signal? "Stereo" or LtRt or what ever it's labled?
I believe some of the very recent Pio AVRs are firmware updateable over the internet, you will need to check your manual for that, I believe yours is fairly recent but maybe not recent enough. Most of the others require the use of a PC with serial port for the majority of updates an older type CD or DVD player with a digital output (for the DSP update, I used an old Philips 510 dvd player modern ones and bluray players are not suitable), a reasonable level of technical skill and patience and of course the firmware pack (some very older ones like my LX50 require special adaptors and ribbon cable
although the DSP update is still possible without them).
I checked Hkans website but did not see your model of firmware listed the SC09 was there but not the SC07. I believe, not certain that Pio US are doing free updates for AVR's with firmware problems mostly as a result of the DTS bomb saga, might be worth checking.
Re the downmix I would think if you are playing stereo audio e.g. music then stereo. With Lt Rt if you only have a two channel set up but are playing multi channel audio then as I understand it the other channels are mixed in with the left and right front main channels, a while since I have looked at that bit of information but I think it is pretty clear in the manual which mine unfortunately is on loan to a pal so I can't check
