on DTS-MA 5.1 and Dolby Tru-HD 5.1 tracks my rear surround ARE engaged.
So this must be simply because of the 3D Mapping since PLIIx or nothing else is engaged? Theory would say that if your speakers were perfectly location that only 5.1 channels would be used for 5.1 content?

sounds reasonable enough to me! I can not engage any other surround mode while Trinnov is in play, but I am ok with that!
later I will go down and use a setting that does not use the Trinnov and I imagine I WILL be able to do other surround modes but I am out of time to play now..

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Did you try switching the player to internally decode and then output PCM and switch the R-972 to accept PCM without the auto surround selected?Does it allow to select PLIIx then?

What exactly is the problem with the codecs while flipping channels?

What do you care? Your'e nopt getting one because WAF factor is very low!

It is simply the fact that the audio cuts out when it switches codecs and relocks in on the audio. Very annoying to channel surfers...(a total non issue for me as I am NOT a channel surfer)

Normally with any other avr as you change channels there is a slight pause. Are you saying with the Sherwood it takes longer than that? Why does it do that?

Too bad such a receiver has so many issues. I wonder why Trinnov has not been incorporated in other receivers.

Yep, for some people the issues are a deal breaker. For others simply an annoyance. I fall into the latter part. I LOVE this thing now that I have it dialed in and everything working as expected. I thought the previous poster was kinda full of crapola when he said I would end up selling my Denon AVR-A100 and keep this! Go figure!
