The receiver kind of implies that, too. While Audyssey will say "On" in the home menu, the little light in the display will go off when Dolby Volume is on. It's too bad, too, because I kind of like the way Dolby sounds.
Does anybody know what Dialog Norm means when it flashes on the display briefly? Sorry, I haven't searched the manual yet.
I tell you, so far I'm really liking my new 709, but there's a lot to learn. It's almost more like setting up and calibrating a TV than it is just plugging in a receiver (like my earlier 606).
I'm also really loving the video processing (something I never used on the 606). It seems to make a difference, especially on cable input. Plus it's nice to see my TV displaying full 1920x1080 for the input. I'm pretty sure the upscaling in the 709 is better than my 4-year-old Samsung. Unfortunately, it's giving me a little buyer's remorse thinking how much better the Dual Core Video Engine with HQV Vida in the 809 and up models might be.
Oh, well. Still lots to do yet!
