How big is your room? Also, what gains did MCACC apply to each of your channels? The speakers I am using do not have a high sensitivity (82dB) and if I go over -20 it gets very loud. However, MCACC added anywhere from +6 to +8 dB to each of my channel levels, which means that a comfortable listening level of -25dB is really an overall gain of -18dB or so.
If MCACC applied large negative gains to your channel levels, a simple workaround is to increase each channel by 2 to 3 dB. This will increase your overall volume at a lower overall gain, and maybe get you the results you are looking for.

Does anyone have any general recommendations in the auto surround/advanced surround/direct settings that they particularly like when watching blu-ray with straight HDMI connections??? Same question with satellite (DTV or Dish) input???
Thanks in advance...
I am happy leaving the 919 set to Pro Logic IIx - Movie for just about everything (although this may be due to laziness). It doesn't do too much post-processing, and it will matrix any stereo or 5.1 source into 7.1, more or less. Definitely experiment though, pick a Blu-ray that you are pretty familiar with and cycle between the different codecs and just go with whichever you like. It is very subjective.
