Basic Setup

Canceling the Auto Power Down

When this receiver is not used over a period of several hours,
it will power down automatically. The automatic power-off
timer is set to six hours under factory settings, and the timing
can be changed or the power-off function switched off
altogether. For details, see
The Auto Power Down menu on
page
31.

Canceling the demo display

The display on the front panel shows various information
(demo displays) when the receiver is not operating.
You can turn off the demo display. For details, see
Demo Mode menu on page
31.
The demo mode is canceled automatically when the Auto
MCACC setup is performed (see below).
Automatically setting up for surround sound
(MCACC)
The Auto Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC) setup
measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area,
taking into account ambient noise, speaker size and distance,
and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you
have set up the microphone provided with your system, the
receiver uses the information from a series of test tones to
optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your
particular room.
CAUTION
The test tones used in the Auto MCACC setup are output at
high volume.
Important
The OSD will not appear if you have connected using the
HDMI output to your TV. Use composite connections for
Auto MCACC setup.
The Auto MCACC setup will overwrite any existing speaker
settings you've made.
If you connected either the surround back speaker or the
front height speaker, make sure that the Pre Out setting is
correctly set before performing the Auto MCACC setup (see
page
31). (Here is an explanation using the OSD screen for
a surround back speaker connection.)
