    I have the model in question and even though I have parrotted the fact that it does as it's big brother Lexicon does, it does not, or at least I cannot find "any" reference to it in the manual. [​IMG]
    If it can, would someone like to post what the procedure is?
    I have acheived logic 7.1 from DVDs but it comes from the 2 channel feed, not the 5.1 feed.
    Anyone done this?

    It does L7 on top of DD 5.1 just fine. After you switch to L7, check out the speaker settings again. I think H/K keeps all settings separate for every mode, so it may have reset itself to 2 speakers after you turned on L7. I'm not sure if it's really the case, but check anyway. It should work.

    GOT IT!! [​IMG]
    Even though the manual actually tells you it cannot be done, All you have to do is start a 5.1 source and once it is started, press the Logic-7 button.
    There is an interuption in sound, then the back two speakers show up on the display. Since they are systhesized they do not have little white letters in them.
    I "toured" each of the speakers to make sure they were on and they are playing loud and clear.
    So I guess, even though the manual says "NO" the receiver says yes.
    It does sound pretty impressive. [​IMG]
