I was using the same for about 1/2 months and its been going very well . Yesterday i connected height spearks to it and done the amp assignment to top middle. But when i put my ear close to the height spearks and the surrounds the music or the effects are the same. Pls guide me with or is this the usual thing or i need the avr to get a firmware update which i am scared to as most of the time it gets failed. Yesterday saw the movie wonder woman and it is in dolby atmos. I opted for pure direct mode. The input signal is atmos it shows on the screen and the output is true hd and atmos. But the surrounds and atmos spekers are giving the same thing. Am i doing something wrong pls suggest me.Is it possible that it sounds the same. Or there must be other effects from surrounds and from the Atmos speakers. Pls hifivision family help me out of this problem. Thanks.
