Okay..help me out please for I am totally confused now! I have an XE1 with V2.0. I have a Lexicon MC-12. I am using the 5.1 analogue outputs on the XE1. Bass management is performed by the MC-12 after analogue input so I do not need bass management from the XE1. I have at the moment set-up my XE1, with 0m speaker distances for everything, all speakers set to large. The SPDIF output is set to bitstream at the moment (I know this is contrary to recommendations). When I use the inbuilt calibration test tone, the LFE channel is -10dB which from reading the net is normal. But here is the interesting bit. I am using the HD DVD of Digital VIdeo Essentials, and the test tone is CORRECT. It is not 10dB too low for the LFE channel. So now I am totally confused if I need to change anything or not. I saw a post saying digital video essentials LFE channel was 10dB too high, but that cannot be correct either, because if I measure using the SPDIF output with dolby digital instead of the analogue outputs, the LFE channel is still correct. Any thoughts?
