Thank you again for reply.Starting in Movie or Music mode, yes - press the Pure button ONCE. That will be Direct mode, which is what you want. Press TWICE and you're in Pure Direct mode, which does disable Audyssey.
You want Direct mode, which does NOT disable Audyssey, subs from bass managment, speaker distances, etc.
In your OSD info, you should see the mode shown - if it says Pure Direct, there will be no Audyssey & subs since 4 channel quad discs won't have a sub channel. If this is what you have then:
Cycle through pressing the button again until the OSD shows Direct. When done listening to these discs, then you can press the Movie or Music buttons and you'll be back to where you started initially.
Does that help clarify?
If you used to use a Denon, the use of these modes are the same as what the Denon have.
When in Direct mode (not Pure Direct) the subs are definitely not engaged. I've confirmed by nearfield listening and placing my hand on the subs woofers themselves. The screenshot below also indicates while in Direct mode, no subs.
I won't burden folks any further on this matter as turning off the rear surrounds in the AVR does solve the matter. But it is strange that I would have to do anything when every other disc I own plays in its correct native format without me having to do anything.
