    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi all, A friend of mine gave me an old Yamaha RX–V520 receiver recently and I've connected it via SPDIF to my HTPC. The trouble is that when playing a signal that is plain 2 channel stereo, it keeps sending low volume audio to my rear speakers unless I turn 'effects' off altogether. Turning...

    Dear All, I have a problem of calibration of my soundcard embedded in my notebook DELL D830. I can perfectly calibrate the amplitude but not the phase response. I am using REV 5.01 beta7 and I used a known good loop cable. Windows 7 32bit is my OS. Soundcard OS settings are for the best...

  6. Belkin PF60 and behavior after power loss

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    After a power failure, my PF60 forgets that it should be using the DC trigger until I press the "remote" button on the front of the unit. I've had correspondence with Belkin's online support -- which is, ahem, less than helpful -- and they now recommend that I return the unit for a replacement...
