The last item is 'speaker setup' and it lists 'PEQ select' detailing page 135. Page 135 then details Parametric EQ with 'Manual' as an option. I would have thought that if you currently had manual selected then Scene Save would have to save whatever the manual settings currently are in the Parametric EQ. I.e. if you copied the Auto setup (YPAO) results (as detailed on page 135) edited the gain e.g. + 3dB at say 200Hz Q=1.5 then Scene Save would save all the selected data (including the Parametric EQ tweak) to one of the 4 Available locations on the remote? Can someone please confirm this does work?
Sure if you want to go to all that trouble just to save a few specific settings. I use about 7or 8 Scenes myself. I tend to leave the first four remote accessible Scenes alone as I actually have use for those function (mine are customized versions of the originals). Scene 4 radio is mostly for my wife though I occasionally listen to a local ball game.
OTOH, I thought you were asking about saving Settings on a broader scale. Saving Scene settings are useful for the Scenes if you will use them repeatedly, but for running YPAO then modify or tweak it -- rather than Saving a few pieces, I would think you would want to save your "room configuration". Remember that Save is for capturing the entire set of AVR settings. Scene Save only saves up to that limited set of settings that you want for each Scene -- anywhere from the original 4 checkbox items up to the full set of 10 (although I have yet to have any use for Lip Sync on my AVR).
You can save the 4 "remote accessible" Scenes by setting up your Scene exactly as you want and then press and hold the individual Scene 1-4 button for 3 seconds until the screen message appears. (This by default will only save those first 4 checkbox items -- to save the rest, you must first go into Scene edit Detail and check all the boxes.) You can save the Scene 5 - 12 info by clicking all desired parameters in the desired Scene Detail, then setup your Scene and go into the Scene Save. You'll make a few mistakes, but with several tries it becomes pretty simple though a little tedious.
Edit: In the end, there are just a LOT of Save options.

Quite an expierence!
Very pleased with this ENHANCED DSP only found on the 3060. I have read some posts and many agree with me...Also with native ATMOS Blu Rays in combination with ENHANCED DSP the sound is amazing.
And that is only using a 5.1.2 speaker configuration with DOLBY ENABLED KLIPSCH RP-140SA ELEVATION SPEAKERS (have not yet upgraded to 5.1.4 as of this writing).
I would like to hear some additional observations.
Yes, as you know, I fully agree. I also find Enhanced to work similarly with Dolby True HD discs as it does with DTS MA HD -- though the latter may be a little better (?). I haven't checked to see if I have any discs with both Dolby True HD and DTS MA HD for comparison. Not sure such discs exist at all.
I will say that I would have a hard time stating for certain that I have a preference for a disc with DTS:X vs a disc with DTS MA HD + Enhanced DSP. Of course, DTS:X + Enhanced is also possible...
Frankly, I just tend to call up the right Scene (appropriate speaker definitions -- thanks again to
) for Atmos or DTS:X (depending on Dolby or DTS encoded disc) and add the Enhanced ESP if it is not already on -- and just get on with enjoying my HT!
I've posted before that the choice of upmixer or DSP is more important for me with music than with movies. I find that the Enhanced DSP tends to "spread" the sound field more than Neural:X -- an effect that, in my room, I don't usually prefer as much. But sometimes I just change to 9-Ch and enjoy that different immersion.
So many toys in one "simple" box!
