I don't want to have to crank the center too much either, as it starts to get too tinny. Anyway, I've come to accept it. It is a cheaper center after all.
Anyway, I've run into another issue; this time with hdmi input switching. Ever since I put in an htpc this week, whenever I switch from tv input (hdmi) back to sat/cbl input (which is component/optical in) , every 3-5 seconds the video drops and re-detects again. If I power off avr and back on again its fine. I have other hdmi devices on other inputs (popcornhour, xbox and bluray); when switching from these, I don't experience this issue at all
Hadn't been using this hdmi input (3) before now, for the pc.
Sorry to rehash this again, but is this at all possible then? Still be able to use sat/cbl hdmi port 3, when its already assigned to component/optical?
As mentioned, have a newly built htpc now plugged in hdmi 3 and Bell pvr plugged in component/optical.
To switch to htpc while sat pvr is engaged I've been hitting tv button on demon remote. And only when I switch back to sat/cbl input, does the video start dropping every few secs. A simple power cycle of avr fixes.
