    RSP1066 always in 7.1 mode?

    Hi,

    I've got a 7.1 system hooked up to my RSP1066. I've set the front speakers to large because I dont want to use my sub in 2 channel mode. The surrounds and centre are all setup as being small. And I set the number of back speakers to 2.
    When I play a Dolby Digital 5.1 encode dvd, it will play through all 4 surrounds, so also the rear surrounds play. When I manually switch to Dolby Digital Ex, it just sounds the same and also all 4 surrounds play.

    I dont want this behaviour. I dont want to two rears to play when I select normal DD 5.1. I find this very curious and annoying.

    Or is this on purpose?

    Btw.. the same happens with DTS 5.1 tracks. Also the two backs play.
    I'm using the newest 2.2.5 firmware.

    Greetz,
    Rolf

    You are hearing all 4 surrounds because you set your CB to yes. When playing a regular DD5.1 (non EX) soundtrack, the 1066 will use Rotel XS Surround. I'm not sure if there's any other way around this except to disable the rear speakers from the set up menu.

      Hmm... too bad ... turning off the rears in setup each time is annoying, since it can only be done through OSD. I guess I have to buy the RSP1098

      Ah well... I'll get used to it ... or move back to 5.1 if I upgrade my fronts.
