Hmm... that's annoying. I know there has been a lot of work around
reducing the number of settings which in general I agree with, but...
I would rather let my receiver do the upmixing. It does a pretty good
job using the Pro Logic II Movie setting.
If it's possible to toggle upmixing on the fly, why couldn't it toggle
decoding on the fly?
