Default Onkyo HT-R590 which listening mode should i use for blu-rays?

I just got a new Sony 4k TV and realized I haven't been using the correct listening mode for my Onkyo receiver. There are so many different listening modes and i'm not sure which to choose. The HT-R590 is 7 speaker surround sound system.

After some research it seems the best options for listening modes are either PL2x Movie, Theater Dimensional, Neo 6 Cinema, or Direct.

Anyone with any knowledge on which listening mode i should choose to optimize my movie experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

You need to demo on your own. The TRUEST audio setting would for your AVR to accept whatever codec your bdp is sending it.

Most sources are 5.1. If you want 7.1 from those sources, you need to apply a listening mode that expands 5.1 to 7.1. PLIIx produces stereo rears while DTS Neo:6 does a mono rear that gets sent to both speakers.

Default Any advice?

Anyone familiar with the Onkyo HT-S5800 - 5.1.2-Channel Dolby Atmos Home Theater Package? Amazon reviews are solids but this is the Wife & I's first home theater purshase so we are still on the fence. We plan on getting the home theatre first then buying our 70inch TV soon after.

I haven't heard it, but I suggest you find a way to see if you can demo. This will ensure you like the sound of the system. People have different ears for sound. Some like Definitive Technology, while others like Martin Logan.

Hi there.

I'm about to embark onto the world of projectors. Would you say this are good options?

Projector LED. 2000 Lumens. 50-140". VGA, HDMI, USB. Contrast 1200:1. 16:9 & 4:3. Led 120w. 1280*800 native resolution.

or

Projector LED. 2800 lumens. 16:9 & 4:3. Contraste: 2000:1. Panel LCD 5.8". Native resolution 1280*800. 60"-120".

What are the pros and cons? Keep in mind I currently have a 46'' Led tv, so I'm gonna feel a big difference already.

Thank you in advance!

If in a brightly lit room, go with the higher lumen projector. Contrast means nothing. Don't worry about that. Are you able to audition them? Ensure to bring your movies with you.

The room can be in complete darkness, that is not an issue.
Since this is my first projector and my budget is limited, I thought one with 720p resolution would work just fine.

If that's good enough for you, then go for it. My opinion: Going projector means that you are installing a +100" screen. If so, there will be a difference in picture quality on some bluray transfers. What's your budget? If not too personal to ask? Are you willing to buy used?

I would rather wait until I have the money for a 1080p projector.

Thank you for your answers.
I'm not from North America/Europe, so the projectors available here are very few. And the costs are also high because they are all imported. So, for now, 720p is the way to go.

I understand what you mean. What technology is each projector? LCD, DLP, LCOS? That would make a difference in the type of picture you like and how much you can calibrate.(even at the intermediate level)

Read on these three technologies before making your decision. That's the best advice I can give you. There are pros and cons of each technology. I'm a fan of LCOS implementation in Sony projectors.

I have a question, not sure if this is the right place to ask

I'm watching a Korean movie called Master, i play it with my Samsung Ultra HD blu ray player UBD K8500. For some reason it gives me a message "This can't be performed because of disc restriction" if i want to have the original Korean audio instead of English dub, also when i try to have the subtitle on.

So is there a way i make it work or that's how it is?

It is very possible that it has a region lock on the disc.... so you can only play the movie on a player that is also set for the Korean region... That's my first thought

As of right now, 4k Blu-ray Players have no restrictions on regions, BUT, thatís only for 4k UHD discs. For standard Blu-ray discs and DVDs, the 4k Players are still region-locked which means you wonít be able to play foreign discs unless your player is the region-free UBD-K8500 4K UHD.

Question.

What would be the pros and cons of doing this setup with a network rack.

24 port keystone patch panel
14 banana plug keystone jacks with https://smile.amazon.com/Mediabridge...YGMCGC?ie=UTF8
jumpered over to my receiver

Would there be any loss in quality?
