I have a Sony BDPS550 and utilise the 7.1 analogue outs into my Yamaha RX-V2095 (I know, an oldie - but a goodie) 5.1 inputs.

I can turn off either of the rear pairs in the Sony's menu. My question is which should I turn off? (The rear  speakers I use are in the corner and behind the listener. Does the player mix the rears or just turn off the signal that would go to the turned off channels?

Cheers

Rex

I would use surround rather than surround back connections.  Then tell the player that you don't have any surround back speakers in the Audio Settings-Speaker Settings menu (page 46 of the manual).  It should then mix any rear surround info into the surrounds you have.

Thanks.

I found where to turn them off - not which to turn off.

I will set it up as you recommend and see how it that sounds.

It should also mix channel 6 of a 6.1 signal in if you play something that has 6.1 by putting it out of both surrounds so that it sounds like it is from behind you.
I'll be intereted to see how you get on.
