One main question I have, is whether there's a way to have the receiver display what the frequency of the input audio signal is. I have a PC and playstation both hooked up with HDMI, and they are both capable of sending PCM in a variety of formats. I have a few DVD audio discs that have 96Khz tracks on the DVD layer and the PS3 will play them; but I'm not sure if there PS3 is sending the PCM bitstream, or downsampling to 44.1 or 48Khz as the receiver front panel just lights up "PCM"...
Secondly, the manual seems to indicate on page 86 that one should run a standard MCACC and then also run the Accoustic Calibration EQ Professional, as it seems to correct in a lower/shorter time range than the standard calibration. Does that make sense? What process do you guys typically follow to get the most out of MCACC's room correction?
A lot of current devices (i.e., BD Players, etc.) can do a good job at decoding the audio format and send that to the AVR as PCM. The 1019 display will indicate PCM and not the original format as it has already been decoded and therefore the AVR has no way of knowing what it was originally. Doesn't really matter as your going to hear the same thing. A lot of folks (including me) like to see the AVR indicate the original format of the signal before decoding so choose to have the device send in bitstream. In this case, the AVR is doing the decoding. Again, you hear the same thing.
As far as how to run MCACC, try using the method provided in the beginning of the MCACC dedicated thread found here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1112470
If you have any questions, post there as they are pretty good about helping out.

Glad you got a working solution. I would think that others out there have run 40 foot of hdmi without loosing signal strength, although looks like you tried the obvious solutions in order to boost the signal. Wouldn't a heavier gauge (i.e., thicker) cable provide for less resistance and therefore less signal loss? Something like this:http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
