If this has been answered I apologize, and please direct me to that answer. I know it's a Newbie question, but I've been trying to figure it out for weeks. HDMI will carry 32 audio channels, right? How many audio channels are on a typical Blu-Ray? Atmos Blu-Ray? DVD? Just 5.1, and the processor figures out what to send where? How does it do that? I really want to install Front Wide speakers in my HT, but there doesn't seem to be many processors that call out "Front Wide", such as the Anthem MRX 1140, which is one I'm considering, but I read on here that you can do (I probably have this a little off...) 9.1.2 or 7.1.6? Does the configuration allow you to pick your setup, like say I have front wides, side surrounds, and rear surrounds, but only 2 atmos? Or 4 atmos and front wides but no side surrounds? And if you have 6 atmos speakers, does the processor algorithm different sounds to send to those 3 pairs of speakers to make the helicopter sounds like it's coming at you or whatever? If a processor is 15.1 channels, is that the same configuration regardless of brand? LCR, SL SR, RearSL RearSR, Front, Middle, & Rear Height, and Front Wide L & R? :confused:

This is a rough layout of what I have. Right now I only have the two height speakers above the couch, not the other two. And The front wide speakers aren't there either. The scale of the speakers is probably in the ballpark also, but that's about it. Basement is finished except the ceiling, which is open floor joists of main floor above, painted black.
