hahaha, man, direct is direct!
PURE and RAW unfiltered honey straight from the bee hive
as in, no processing, no upmixing, no downmixing, no muxing,
In other words, if your play a Blu-ray movie that has 7.1 surround, it will directly shoot that sound to the available speakers. If you only have 2.1 setup, then you would not hear any dialog because most dialog goes to the center channel. If you have a 5.1 speaker system, you will hear 5 of the 7 channels, that last 2 would be Rear/Back surrounds.
PURE Direct will pump sound to the speakers available.
I don't think you could use PURE Direct with a 7.1 BD movie to a 2.1 speaker setup. I think that is where the 2 channel mode is a must.
You should do yourself a knowledge favor and read up a bit on your manual. Actually start with the OP to see what general features it has, then use the manual to reference each feature. I'm still
doing this. It will be provide relief from AV anxiety for a decade until some new technology renders it all useless.
