Sooooo.... if you mean to use x.x.6 layout using PL2 decoding, you'll need to do the same.
Just note that when disabling the PL2 decoding that there will need to be a new distance/delay profile for your system if you want it all aligned with the system bypassed. Since adding this I don't ever use my HT with it disabled so this is a total non-issue for me.
Interesting. I have noticed that when my AVR is in 5.1 Multi-Analog, the speakers are dead silent. However, when I switch to 2Ch analog input and enable PLII, there is a prominent hiss that I will not be able to deal with. At All...
However, the delay is not even enough to bother with for overheads...
When I finally have a dedicated space, 9.4.6, I will be buying at lest 2 brand new AVRs since my Mains will be running off of them. The other 2 can be used but they must be transparent. Or maybe by that time, they will have AVRs out that process more Atmos channels. Next Year?..
This weekend, I will be hooking up my VOG using the last Center input and output as my Amp for 7.2.5. After that, I am done experimenting. Should work.. "in theory". If not, oh well. Back to movie watching.
Well...I have been thinking about a couple of MiniMartys!
