First of all let me start by saying, I really appreciate all the help everyone in this threat puts forward. I am completely new to the surround sound world. The last reciever I owned was an RVA system in a box I purchased about 6 or 7 years ago with my very first paycheck. With that being said I have a few questions.
I purchased this reciever and the entire speaker set that best buy offers. Then I got the sub for 79.99 on a shellshocker from newegg 2 days ago. My sub hasnt even arrived yet.
Last night I started hooking everything up, and I ran into a few things I would like to ask about.
1. I know this thing can sound a lot better than it sounds but I have absolutely no idea about all these buttons on the remote, and so on. What are the main settings I need to use to make this thing really sound good? I want to use 5.1 surround sound. I have the stand up towers, center, and bookshelf and will have the sub in a few days.
2. My computer is hooked up to my 55' LED 3D Samsung. At the moment I have been using logitech speaker system as my speakers, but I would much rather use this. Last night I ran my HDMI Cord into the reciever, and my PC made the sound like it was installing new hardware but nothing past that ever happened. The HDMI source never became availible to use so I couldnt switch to it on my TV input. Any advice on using this for my PC? Because that was honestly one of the main things I wanted to use it for.
That is really all the questions I had so far. I opened up the OSD, but I really didnt see anything in there I needed to really change. I enabled HDMI and ARC because I need through this thread I needed to do that.
Any help you guys can offer up to a complete newbie would be fantastic. Thank you guys! I'm totally not use to paying this much for a sound system but I figured since I got a 2,000 TV that I would be robbing myself not to have great sound.
Thanks again guys!
