    Took delivery of Velodyne VX10 t'other day. I was dismayed I couldn't get sound via the subwoofer pre-out on my Sony STR-DB930.

    I read manual and couldn't find out why - was puzzled cos the left, right pre-outs into teh sub gave sub-operation. So, can anyone guess what I was doing wrong?

    If not, I'll tell you...........

    You need AFD (Auto Format Detection) set as the sound field OR a DSP mode, e.g. Cinema EX B.

    Was working :( so I missed your initial post - what did you think I said and what did you say in response? I'm a bit intrigued.

    Oh, cool.

    Does it say this in the manual - about AFD?

    I can't understand why 2-channel or normal Dolby Digital/DTS decoding doesn't allow this. Seems weird/pointless to me.:confused:
