Default Keep getting DTS neo 6 with the wii

Hello I Have been having trouble getting rid of the dts Neo6 setting on my amp. I have the onkyo nr616. This setting is not present with my dvd player or my cable box just my WII. I have the Wii hooked up through component cables. I primarily use the Wii for Netflix. It sounds horrible and not as good as the THX settings I have everything else on. Please help

While you mention Component for your video, you do not mention how your connected for audio.

If you are using the analog (red/white), you will not be able to attain the digital audio setting that an optical or coax digital output will allow.

DTS Neo:6 is a surround mode used to expand stereo sources to the number of speakers configured in a system. The fact that your AVR is applying Neo:6 means your Wii is not sending a 5.1 signal. If you are using analog L/R cables for audio, then stereo is the best you can get. If you are using a digital connection (optical or coax), then set the Wii to output DD 5.1 and play a source with a DD 5.1 soundtrack. Lots of Netflix offerings are just stereo.

Your receiver uses whatever listening mode you have assigned to the type of audio being received. At some point, you probably told it use DTS Neo:6 when the source is stereo. You will need to change the Listening Mode to something else, such as PLII, or to simply play stereo as stereo rather than expanding it to multichannel.
