Hi Guys,

Just received my 1070 at work and have been going over the manual. Replacing my 1050. Started out to ask some specific questions about my universal dvd hook-up, but will ask just one. How would you guys hook-up and configure your universal dvd player with the 1070?

Thanks, KT

I'd run both the six-channel analog audio and a digital audio to the 1070 - this will let you get DVD-Audio and SACD (which need the six-channel) while still using the 1070's processing (Dolby EX, DTS ES, Pro Logic IIx, DTS NEO:6, quad crossover) for DVD-Video. I'd probably also set the universal player up so that it applied no bass management to the analog output (all speakers large, subwoofer on) and then compare both the "DIGITAL" and "HPF/LPF" options for bass management on the 7.1 direct input.

That's right, Gonk's on top of things. My Denon 3910 universal DVD is hooked up using the six analog cables. I have the Denon set to source direct to avoid any bass management being applied. On the 1070 I have the bass management toggle set to the top position (HPF/LPF). At first I was unsure of this fixed 80 Hz crossover since I have fairly big towers up front, but upon actually experimenting with all the bass mangement settings, the HPF/LPF sounded best. Like Gonk said, make sure to have an optical connection for video.

I haven't recieved the 1070 yet, but I figured I'd ask anyway. When playing a SACD or DVD-A, do I have to set the reciever to recieve the multi-channel analog input or does it do it automatically?

You will need to select the "7.1 Direct" mode - based on my reading of the manual, you'll go to the DVD input like you would for a normal DVD and then select "7.1D" on the remote to toggle the DVD input from the normal arrangement (which would presumably be one of the digital audio inputs) to the multi-channel analog.

Of course, if you have a player that you use solely for DVD-A/SACD, you could set it up to always use the 7.1 Direct input...

thanks Gonk - good info

And on a side note - UPS tried to deliver my LFM-1 today, but I'm at work...doh! Hope I don't have to lug that bad boy into and out of my car!

Thanks Gonk, would configuring say one input (dvd) with direct audio in and component video out and another input say vid 1 with optical audio in and dvi video out on the same player work? Then hit dvd to play sacd's and vid 1 to play movies, or is this overkill? Also, am planning on getting a 3910, but right now cannot turn my bass mgt off on player. Will setting everything large skip it or do I need to set the xovers very high. Thanks

You could certainly set a unit up with DVI and digital audio to the Video1 input and component (or even s-video or composite) and six-channel analog to the DVD input and very readily toggle between the two modes in that manner, but it will tie up both of your DVI ports as well as two of your three component inputs - which could start to give you some headaches if you have more than a couple of source components. The other approach of routing six-channel analog and digital audio through the DVD input and using the 7.1D button to toggle isn't much more difficult, and it leaves Video1 open for other sources.

To avoid bass management in the Denon, simply set all speakers to large and make sure the sub is set to on. That will bypass the internal bass management.

Gonk, with my dvd video connections at the component in and out, why can't I get the OSD to work. Also if all composite and s-video is upconverted to component out, why does the satellite reiever (s-video in)not work unless the s-video loop is completed to the monitor. Isn't the component out supposed to suffice for both inputs and support OSD?

PS What's the AUTO on the video menu actually choose from? Thanks

The OSD won't work with the component connection if it detects a signal from your DVD player. You must use an RCA or S-video monitor out connection or turn off your DVD player. That's how it works on my 1070.
