No. Leave it off for now. Probably for ever.

Make sure to connect the 2nd sub to the A2 output.
Balance/other –apart from the balance setting in System Trim which is not permanent (such a pity), is there any way one can (a ) Set balance of L/Rs ; adjust sub/rear speaker levels, etc specific to each mode rather than have a global setting for all modes?
It's not a pity, it's by design.
Yes. If you want to define different speaker gain relationships, you can build up to 6 different templates. They are called configurations. Each can store specifics about
--speaker complement, 2.0, 5.1, 7.2 ...
--speaker distance (useful for different audience sizes)
Given no L/R balance control available, I guess I can resolve this by increasing the level of the Front left if this an issue?
If the balance offset is permanent, use the Configs. If the balance is for a particular program, use the remote's Trim option, which is temporary as you noted.
Modes : I have following playback issues/queries ………
DVD via HDMI …this input has been set up as preferred mode Prologic ll Music …………when a Blu Ray with DTS True HD is playing , the system still shows
this as Prologic ll in the mode display, however if status window is checked ,this shows as a DTS True HD signal being received – is this only being being
shown as received , or is the processor actually decoding DTS TruHD without indicating this ???
The blu ray menu background music , appears to be in 2 channel and not pro logic as it should be and is set.
The SSP wants you to define the preferred surround processing for 2-ch sources separately from multi-channel sources, and to do so for each input:
>next input (unless you are adjusting input 1)
choose your preference for 2-ch and for multi-ch
The status window tells you about the incoming source audio. The home display, at the bottom, shows the surround processing that was selected. Be advised that even when playing a 7.1 source, the display will still report PLIIx even though it cannot apply PLIIx to a 7.1 source. It is reporting what was requested, not what is always actually happening.
DVD- I have a blu ray disc not in DD or lossless format , but in PCM stereo it appears ……..on playback even if Prologic ll is enabled , why am I only getting
2 channel playback and how do I get the processor to decode to Prologic ll with all speakers functioning as they should in this mode setting?
See above -- define PLII for the fave mode for that input.
Digital Satellite : Pse see above, but this issue is with Dolby digital and am I actually getting DD ?? ……mode input display says Prologic ll , but status reads incoming at 3+2.1- is processor decoding to DD ??
When I get 5.1 DD from my DirecTV, the SSP status screen reports "Dolby Digital 3/2.1". The display can sometimes show different things even for "the same" types of sources. Are you sure that the satellite box is set to output a DD bitstream? Even so for DirecTV, when the source is stereo, it comes out as 2.0 PCM, not 2.0 DD. Are you using DISH or DirecTV?
AppleTV: I stream my music library to my Apple TV connected to the SSP800 via HDMI……….preferred mode set at is Prologic ll music ….all I get is two
channel playback – how do I get the processor to decode to prologic ll surround ???
Set the fave processing for 2.0 sources. This has to be done for each input. That way, you can default to PLII Music for stereo sources from AppleTV, and PLII Movie for stereo sources from TV, for example. If you want it to do that even with the same source (I play movies and music in my BD player, so I want different setups for each), build another virtual input calling the same source connections, but set the particular fave audio processing and/or Config to be applied.
Let us know how you make out.
