My receiver has a separate HDMI SW level and i am not sure what to do. You can put it at auto, 0 or +10db. Which setting should i use?

Depends on what you hook up to each HDMI. I assume this "setting" is also for EACH HDMI...not a "blanket for all" HDMI setting. Most BD players are set up for -10db from the factory to take into consideration you "will probably send" all the other 5.0 sound to the .1 under 80hz...so all those "other" 5.0 under 80hz will each add 2db... 2db x 5.0 = 10db...hence why BD players come -10db.

That setting is probably to compensate for the low suwoofer output of the Multi-Ch inputs when using DVD-A and SACD. I'd leave it set to 0. Use the adjustment in the speaker setup menu to calibrate the subwoofer volume to the other speakers. Some receivers/pre-pro's have a -10 setting to lower the subwoofer output when using a two ch analog connection. But it wouldn't harm anything to set it to +10 if it sounds better for some reason.
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Dynaudio Audience 50's, 40's 122C, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.
"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Adcom GF-700 5.1 receiver, OPPO BDP-80 BR player, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have...too much to list. Help me.
