I'm in over my head - Help
I am a complete newbie when it comes to home cinema and really need your help.
I have Sky HD (hdmi & optical), Playstation 3 (hdmi), Samsung 40" (forgot the model), Onkyo 875 and 5.1 surround speakers.
My questions are with my Onkyo 875
1) I have set it all up using the funny little microphone auto set up thingy, but now the audyssey light is on all the time, i found this in the set up - what is it and should I leave it on or turn it off?
2) When watching something with Dolby Digital or DTS the onkyo automatically changes to the right sound format, but what should it be on the rest of the time - Direct, All Ch Stereo or multichannel (what is multichannel ?)
3) When will / should I get to use the THX formats?
4) what is Pure Audio?
I won't ask about the HD formats yet as I can't even work out the normal ones for my sky, dvd's or games. I only have casino royale on blu ray anyway.
Sorry for being a bit dumb about these things but have previously just listened to everything through my TV and do not have a clue about any of this.
Any help greatly appreciated but please answer the questions as if you were explaining it to your Wife, Mum or a 5 year old, whchever the most clueless.
