    New Receiver

    I've just got a new Yamaha 6140 reciever. It sounds great but I'm confused about the 5.1 sound settings. Which setting would be the best for 5.1 discrete sound when viewing TV? Some of the choices are,
    1. 5 ch stereo
    2. 2 ch enhanced
    3. 5 ch enhanced
    4. Pro Logic
    5. PL II movie
    6. direct
    7. straight
    8. movie spacious
    9. movie dramatic
    There are more choices but one of these should be correct. Sorry but I just can't seem to figure out which would be correct.
    Thanks
    My pool is a 10,500 gallon (420 Sq Ft ) kidney shape. A hand made sheer decent waterfeature. STA-RITE HRPB30, Sand filter 30" 98 GPM,

    When I first set up my Marantz a/r and Cambridge Sound Works 5/1 speakers/sub a few years ago, I didn't really think to ask which sound effect was best with TV or DVD, etc --- I just experimented until I found the two or three that sounded best. Some of the sound processing selections on my system seemed artificial, so I avoid them and allow my receiver to "auto" select the setting when I'm watching television. The Yamaha might have a similar option.
