    Are you sure your audio settings on your HTPC were setup correctly for Atmos? Was Atmos for home theater selected in your sound settings and then you had an Atmos source track to test?

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (2/2/2020: Drop + THX Panda review added)

    You can upgrade the firmware from PC too. There are two optionsfor installing the Sxfi PC client. From Creative’s website directly or from the Windows 10 store. I’ve found the software from Creative directly to be less buggy than the Windows 10 app from the W10 Store. Once you connect the Amp to...

    I apologize if you answered this as I didn’t go back through the thread, but do you have a PC? You can upload personalization files from PC to the amp if you do.

    1. That seems like abnormal behavior. I’ve had a few lockup’s in the past 5-6 months, but using the “adj” buttons too quickly has never been a way to consistently lock it up. 2. If the Surrey room doesn’t exist (I can’t remember if it did on mine by default) then you have to create rooms using...

    It does require digital files that Smyth needs to supply and I think the only info we have I’d from there firmware release notes where they say they’ll release them in “due time”.

    I should say this is how I understand it to work although I don’t currently have any 2.1 devices. The 2019 LG OLED lineup has HDMI 2.1 however there are currently no devices that output 2.1 yet. With the RTX lineup of cards and the Xbox One which supports VRR, you can indeed use it over the...

    While it will be technically outdated once HDMI 2.1 capable products start shipping, it practically it will be fine for awhile for most use cases. You can do VRR over HDMI 2.0b just fine, where 2.1 is helpful is pushing 4K at 120hz which neither console will likely be able to do unless they have...

    The BBC and Surrey rooms will be there after a factory reset or firmware update. Any other PRIRs you capture will remain as long as you’ve moved them to the internal memory or a SD card as well. The only PRIRs or HPEQs that will be wiped are the ones residing in the temporary memory.

    I’m assuming that @audiohobbit got you squared away via PM. If not I would go to the latest FW update instructions and scroll to the bottom where it walks you through doing a full factory restore. Assuming you can get the unit to take remote commands you should be able to navigate to that and...

    It puts you into the menu with the presets, audio source, listening rooms, apps, files, settings, audio meters or does it put you in the menu with PRIR sound rooms, headphones, system, time, users, updates/about?

    Once you reboot, can you get into the settings menu or does it become unresponsive once you hit the enter button? If you can get into the settings have you tried doing a full factory restore? There is a bug I believe that is listed as a known issue where the unit can become unresponsive to the...

    I can confirm that my unit updated to 1.81 displays that message on startup as well so I think it’s normal.

    Mine only took 2-3 days business days to get here. Think it shipped on a Thursday and delivered Monday.

    I was never told of any fees either in any email I received. In fact when I went to pick up my A16 at the UPS hub I was having it held at I specifically asked if I owed them anything and was told no. Then an invoice for $37 shows up a few weeks later:

    Ok. I found my invoice that UPS mailed me after delivery of my A16 last summer. The charges broke down like this: US Customs Duties 0.00 Govt Charges Other Than Duties 26.12 Brokerages Charges 11.00 Total Charges 37.22

    Mine luckily didn’t end up with any real delay. It hit U.S. soil at something like 8pm and by 10:00 that same night was through customs and continued on its way. I did call them to give them the EIN as shortly after they emailed me.

    Mine had a declared value of $3995 I think. Some portion of that $37 was a “UPS warehousing fee” (which is kind of funny since it probably sat in their warehouse for about an hour or two while I contacted to give them their required info to clear customs). I want to say the breakdown was like...

    When my A16 was going through the UPS system in August, I had to deal with the same thing. It didn’t delay anything at all as they emailed me saying they needed additional info and to call them. I did so right away, gave them my social, and the A16 immediately cleared customs. I did get a bill...

    So I messed around with the Harmony Hub a bit last night to mixed results. If you setup an A8 as a device (the A8 is in their database) then some functions work out of the box like the arrow and enter keys. I tried retraining the volume up and down buttons using the A16 remote and adding the...

    I have a Harmony hub being delivered soon and will probably get a chance to set it up by the end of the weekend. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Anyone here trained a Harmony remote or similar remote (like Sevenhugs) to work with the A16? I’m finally at the breaking point with the amount of remotes I have to control my stuff and would like to pickup a remote like a Harmony or Sevenhugs. When it comes to the A16 I’d be fine with just the...

    I got my 2U in August and it’s serial number 150. I’m not sure there’s a ton of rhyme or reason to who is getting what serial number at any given time.

    Thanks. That’s what I thought, I just wasn’t sure if I was missing something obvious.

    Just want to make sure I wasn’t missing anything obvious. I know that 1.80 fully implemented Async measurements, but none of the needed files including 5.1 have been released yet?
