    Hi,

    I'm about to send audio thru analog route to my Pioneer VSX-912K, in the 7.1 analog inputs (from a computer)

    I just have a couple of questions maybe you can help me,

    1) Does the reciever still controls the delays and outputs of each channel, or does it only amplifies the signal as it comes?
    2) Can I use Dobly Prologic or Neo with this setup?

    Thanks,
    Pablo

    I'm not familiar with this particular receiver, but generally when you go the separate analogue input route, you bypass everything except the amp section. Delay settings, output levels and any form of DSP (which would include DPL or DTS:Neo) are unavailable.

    Thanks Michael for the info,

    One last question, do you think the channels will come full range, if that happens do you think the reciever still uses the crossover or do you think the signal will go full.

    Thanks,
    Abula

    Michael,

    Thanks for the confirmation,

    I have being reading a lot of the card that I bought, speacially now that I know I will bypass everything and that the reciever will be used only as an amp.

    I found this

    I am not familiar with any of the HTPC hardware or its operation. Sorry.
