I just ran the 2009 firmware update on my receiver, which wiped out all of my settings. I ran the YPAO and change the advanced settings appropriately (I have Monitor Audio speakers so I run the 6ohm option and have bi-amping). First pass at the sound setting completely ignored my sub. I changed the settings on the sub and ran again, and this time it recognized the sub. Now when I watch a DVD or Blu Ray the audio is great like before. However, when I play music through My First Generation Apple TV, I have to crank up the volume to twice what I used before the firmware update, and far more than when I am watching a movie. I understand that with DVS/BluRay I am running 5.1, but the discrepancy is pronounced. Any ideas why I am seeing this problem in music only?
Also, what about the speaker size setting? I hear if you have a sub, then "Small" is preferred.
Monitor Audio Siver Series RX-6, RX Center, RXW12 Sub, and ceiling mounted C180s in the rear.
