I have a question about speaker configuration.
I'm currently running what is effectively 5.1.4.
Previously I had 7 channels And sub, but with the rear speakers mounted on the rear wall above me which made a nice 7.1 system.
Now I have added the anthem, and I have named the rear speakers to the rear height on wall location. I've also added new front height speakers on the front wall.
When running DTS-X, and for channel identification from the anthem everything works well.
In fact, I found a nice DTS-X test track with someone talking from each channel which sounds very uniform and excellent.
However, I do not have a designated "back" speaker currently. (As the rear speakers are now designated as height 2).
So when I play Blu-ray 7.1 format, now the rear channel does not go to my rear height speaker, but instead is directed to my side surrounds.
I'm not sure what atmos is doing, and would like to check.
Does anyone have a nice link for spoken Atmos speaker positions, i.e. channel identifications?
Is there a better way that I should specify the system to improve 7.1 or Atmos playback?
An obvious alternative would be to designate my rear speakers as back, although they are well above my seating position.
