OK, so two weeks with my RX-V685 (and first receiver ever) and getting the hang of it (by reading and experimenting 24/7 basically)
A big thanks to ChromeJob
by the way, you are such a help - I have like 20 of your posts in a file for future reference. You should get paid for this, really
Anyway, I am currently in the process of setting audio decoding for my main 4 scenes. I've generally figured out my PC (movies via VLC player) should be "straight" (HDMI audio only, no sound card involved). Also "straight" for my PS4 scene (yet to decide on PCM vs bitstream). And my tuner scene will be set per preference, currently 7-channel stereo DSP.
However my TV scene's audio doesn't make sense. I'd like to keep it at "Auto surround" because it works nice with cable channels with a lot of talking, etc. Based on reading here and on other places I was under the impression that if I use "auto surround" DSP and switch to a movie (a TV channel or streaming app - Netflix or HBO) which has native 5.1 channels, the receiver will detect that and automatically turn off the processing and allow the native 5.1 channels to play in "straight" mode. However when testing on Netflix this doesn't seem to be the case. Dark Knight sounds much different (and better) in "straight", compared to "auto surround". Yet to test this on a cable movie channel, but am I wrong to assume "auto surround" DSP will detect and pass through native 5.1 channels unprocessed?
P.S. How do you do a multi-position YPAO set-up without having such an option in the menu at all? If I make several consecutive measurements based on this article (https://simpleonline.blog/2017/05/23...the-right-way/
) and only my latest measurement is stored in terms of distance, levels, etc. It doesn't make sense, maybe this range of receivers can't do it?
