I have a Denon 4308 and have learned quite a bit about it but please tell me how to best program the Denon 4308 to make 5.1 be 7.1? I have 7.1 speakers and right now just use the 7 channel stereo setup to convert 5.1 to 7.1 but this Denon has MANY more settings.

Try ProLogicIIx.

Sometimes it'll say PLIIx + MV + THX (or a bunch of other stuff), but just look for PLIIx

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

If it is like the 3806 or 5805 use PLIIx C for cinema PLIIx M is for music. There are a couple of others too, essentially you have to tell it to turn on Surround Back channels on and the AVR will matrix the 5.1 to 7.1.

You may need to tell the speaker setup you have the other two channels. I'm unfamiliar with the new GUI (which looks really cool BTW). I will be updating my 3806 to the 4308CI mid year, unless there is anotherone in that price range when I update.
