not sure exactly what else you mean by AUTO.
I am thinking you are talking about to use the Standard Surround that is on the DISC. Hence Dolby Digital to Dolby Digital and NOT Dolby Digital to Dolby Surround.

Xfinity stream through the Chrome, I'll pick which format to play the sound as, Dsurr for the most part, and which seems to be the source of all popping. Again, for for music, mostly 9 channel stereo. Listening to music all this evening and no pops in this mode ever. Never had pops previously via HTPC on my Onkyo AVR.
If I was not clear enough in my try to help anyone that thas the POP issue, I'll try to be more now:
- I could only speak about Yamaha's RX-AX
080 since I have an RX-A2080 (this I think I've already wrote)
- as far as I know and can see, there's ONLY ONE "AI
" and this is the SURROUND: AI
setting, to which I was referring to (please check the picture)
- also the "Auto" that's the "SUR. DECODER: Auto
" setting is the one which I was referring to (please check the picture)
Other settings I use please find in the pictures attached that I took from my Web Setup.
In all fairness, I only had three (3) or four (4) POP's in about 2 months (January and until now in February 2020), and had them with either my OPPO 203 on HDMI In 1 (which settings you see from the Web Setup), and my Apple TV 4K on HDMI In 2 (similar to identical settings), and I think only had those when watching with my old Epson TW-EH5200 projector on HDMI Out 2, and not with my "newish
" projector, Epson TW-EH9400 on HDMI Out 1 (that I use less, just for when I watch 4K content from disks).
If somehow I will going to have another POP with my current settings, I'll come back and let you know!
Hope this helps!
