I recently purchased the Yamaha RX-V1400 after I started having significant problems with my RX-V995. The "YPAO" calibration worked well for me, though it set my center and surround speakers as "small" rather than "large." It's certainly best to double check things afterward but it really is a help in my estimation! My real question is something that never showed up on the RX-V995. Occasionally on the RX-V1400, I'll notice "Dial Norm = 40db" or some such value come up on my on-screen briefly when loading a DVD menu or movie start to play. I emailed Yamaha about this twice and got no response. It isn't mentioned in the manual as a system parameter or anything. Could anyone enlighten me as to what this is? Is it a glitch or some new DVD disc status info?
