I went to the Integra site to file a complaint and they have shut it down for feedback. Too many issues with products??

You have got me confused now Bill. The 80.3 is a 9 channel processor. How would it do an 11 channel calibration? I agree it should do a 9 channel calibration - but 11 is impossible. What am I missing here?
Remind me again which channels you want to calibrate? I am assuming:
You need to tell the unit in speaker config menu that you are running heights, wides or both. Here is an extract from my 5509 manual (same unit, different badge):
Front High + Front Wide Yes:
The “Front High” and “Front Wide” settings
( page 53) are automatically switched to “80Hz(THX)” if they were set to “None”.
When the “Front High + Front Wide” setting is set to “Yes”, the audio of front wide is output from the SURR BACK terminals.
“Front Wide” is automatically switched to “None”.
As you can see, if you are running both front heights AND wides at the same time (IOW you answered 'yes') you cannot then run Surround Back channels (you only have 9 channels to play with).
If you want to run Surround Backs, you have to answer NO to that question and then choose whether to run Heights OR Wides in a subsequent menu.
Is this your understanding of how it all works?
If you have the speaker config set up incorrectly (eg you answered yes but you are only running Heights) then some of the channels will not be available (in the example in this sentence, the Surround Backs will not be available). If some of the channels are not available/correctly specified, then when you run Audyssey it will not detect the channels, which is what I think you are saying is happening.
The confusion sometimes arises because people count all the possible channels (11) and assume they can all be used at the same time - but this is not possible on a 9.2 unit of course.
Please confirm you have the menu selections that you need for the config you are running and then let's see if we can get any further.
You sure you have the correct speaker configuration set in Pro?
We'd better quit this before the Mods toke exception.... :)
I have to say that it doesn't seem untypical of Audyssey these days. I experienced similar issues when I had to return my Pro preamp to them because they forgot to include the correct power supply with it and the one I used blew it up. Sadly, since they got into all the peripheral activity with the 'Market' thing and their range of products they now push, they dont seem very interested in us enthusiasts. Chris K doesn't even reply to posts on Ask Audyssey any more and he gave up reading the Audyssey thread a long time ago. Jerry posted a very well documented bug report for them but they more or less ignored then points he was making. Sad really.
This has come up before. Email Luke at Audyssey and explain the situation and they will fix it for you.
