Well I'm new to this forum and fairly new to the world of HT. I recently bought a Pioneer XV-HTD520 Home Theatre In A Box, Used. It came with no manual or speakers. I will build the speakers myself, matching the OEM speakers as closely as possible. However my main problem lies in the fact that there are a bunch of features and menu items/settings that I do not understand. Some of them may be player specfiec, but I will break it down into catagories and perhaps someone here will know what I'm talking about and be able to help me out. Alternativly if anyone owns this unit as well, it may be possible to scan the manual for me, which i would greatly appreciate. But on with the questions that i have. This unit has: Surround Mode DSP Mode Sound Mode CD Mode (Button) The questions are as follows: In The Surround Mode Menu I have; Auto Musical Drama Standard Action Virtual Surround 1/2 Rear Wide What do these do to the sound? In The DSP Mode Menu I have; Hall 1/2 Jazz Dance Theatre 1/2 Simulated Stereo Effect (Ranges from 10 - 90 and is only available when DSP is on) What do these do and how does it correlate to the sourround mode/other sound modes? In The Sound Mode Menu I Have; P.Bass Record Mode Midnight Mode (When toying with record mode and turning it on/off, i have to restart/open the DVD player to get it to play DVD's again.... same with the CD Mode whatever that is) What do these functions do/what are they? In the "System Setup" i have; LFE (Off/ATT 0/ATT 10) What Does this Do and how does it affect the sound in the sub? (I can also adjust the bass up to +3dB, and adjust the Sub channel up to +10dB seperatly) D.R.C Mode, (Off/Low/Mid/High) What is this? L-Ch1 R-Ch2/Ch1/Ch2/Mix. What does this do? "FRT SP/CTR SP/SUR SP x.x m" what does this do? I know it has something to do with Front,Center And Surround, beyond that Im lost. This is also a Dolby Digital/Pro Logic/DTS Decoder. is there a way to switch between these, or is it pretty much disc specfic? I'm sorry if this doesnt make sense to anyone who doesnt own one of these units, but it has so many damn menus/functions/options that i simply do not understand. since i do not have speakers as of yet i cannot tell how it will sound when certain settings are changed... so im hoping (guessing) that alot of these settings show up on other systems as well. Thank you to anyone who can offer any type of help with this...does anyone else own one of these handy little units?
