  2. Audio Processing
    I am using Onkyo 5508 Preamp and Oppo 83 BDP. During Transformers BD DOTM in Dolby TrueHD 7.1 I cannot set THX Ultra 2 processing on the 5508. It is not displayed as a choice. If however I load another BD say in DTS MA HD BD THX Ultra 2 is selectable. It appears to be a conflict between Dolby...
