SPDIF - that's what I needed to know. Thanks a bunch. Now I just need an RCA-to-optical adapter......this is going to be uber cool....digital out from my source, through the HK's DACs...nice.
Good day. i hope you guys can assist me on my issue. i have an avr247 receiver connected to an LG smart tv via optical cable. i use the tv as the mp3 player and the avr247 as my sound output. i like using "logic 7 music" as my default surround when playing mp3s. my problem is, everytime the next track plays, it goes back to "surround off - stereo". i dont prefer this mode. i prefer "logic 7 music". auto polling is set to "off" already. default surround mode is already set to "off". my firmware is 126.96.36.199. date is 02-02-2008 02. thanks in advance.
Since all 5 channels go through the bass module and out to the satellites, I'd set the fronts, centre and surrounds as large and sub as none. Because it is essentially 5.0 setup, you can't use the EZSetup and need to manually configure the rest of the settings. Since there is no sub (as the receiver sees it), the LFE (.1 channel) will be diverted to the front speakers where their lower frequency is generated from the bass module, so you don't loose any LFE. Therefore, you shouldn't need an additional sub unless you want way more bass.
I know it's a late reply, but it may help others.
