    I have a Rotel RSP 1068 HT processor and a 6.1 system. I would like to have different configurations for movies and music. For movies I want to use my rear speaker (6.1). For music, I do not want my rear speaker active. I just want 5.1 for music. Can I set up my 1068 this way? If so, how? If not, is there a processor that lets you do this?
    Thanks for any help on this.

    5.1 would be using your rear speakers. 2.1 is front and sub only.

    I have 2 fronts, 1 center, 2 sides and 1 rear. Actually Rotel calls them front, center, surround and back speakers. The back speaker is want I want with movies but not with music.

    Unless you tell it to matrix a 5.1 source to 6.1 is should play it without the back center.

    I often play 2 channel stereo CD's using DTS Neo 6. Unless I go into the setup and deactivate the back channel, it plays 6.1, which is what I do not want. I really don't like music coming from the back of my head. I guess I'd like the option of having an automatically deactivated back channel when playing Neo 6, and an activate back channel for movies.
