Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I just bought a Denon AVR989 receiver and have it hooked up to Blu-Ray (Samsung 1500), PS3 and my projector (JVC RS2) all using HDMI cables. I am playing a number of blu-ray disks (all with "TrueHD Digital" or high end audio out.. but can only get my reciever to display "Dolby Digital" as the surround mode. I am looking to try and get it to display "TrueHD" or something similar. I am using BITSTREAM (audiophile) (using HDMI for audio) from the blu-ray and HDMI audio from the PS3. Not sure what (if) I am doing anything wrong. I have also alternated between 5.1 and 7.1 to see if that was the problem. It wasn't. I just went from Dolby Digital (in 5.1) to Dolby (D) PLIIx C surround modes. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Kevin

SOURCE: No Audio when I play Blu-Ray discs with Dolby TrueHD

For dolby digital to work you have to have the optical or coax cable hooked up to the reciever ,The HDMI cable is for digital video and audio output but does not support dolby digital out the cable into your reciever , so just turn off the dolby digital on your reciever and you should hear the sound.
here is more info

Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless multi-channel audio codec developed by Dolby Laboratories which is intended primarily for high-definition home-entertainment equipment such as Blu-ray Disc. It is the successor to the AC-3 Dolby Digital surround sound codec which was used as the audio standard for DVD discs. In this application, Dolby TrueHD competes with DTS-HD Master Audio, another lossless codec from Digital Theater System.
Dolby TrueHD uses Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) as its mathematical basis for compressing audio samples. MLP was used on the earlier DVD-Audio format, but details of TrueHD and DVD-Audio differ substantially. A Dolby TrueHD bitstream can carry up to 14 discrete sound channels. Sample depths up to 24 bits/sample and audio sample rates up to 192 kHz are supported. Like the more common legacy codec Dolby Digital, TrueHD bitstreams carry program metadata. Metadata is separate from the coding format and compressed audio samples, but stores relevant information about the audio waveform. For example, dialog normalization and Dynamic range compression are controlled by metadata embedded in the TrueHD bitstream.

Set the receiver for auto audio input - I think that you are getting caught out between MPEG and DTS audio. If you have the wrong one for the audio source then you hear nothing.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.

No sound when ps3 is hooked up to a denon avr 1609


The 1609 only has video on the HDMI. No audio comes through the HDMI cables. Hook up an optical cable between your ps3 and the receiver and you should be good to go.

No audio from PS3.


works great, plenty of plug-ins, easy set up, but you get 2 hdmi ins 1 out. hdmis' work great one cable for sound and video but the denon avr588 doesn't accept sound through the hdmi cable.(it's noted in the manual) why not? i don't understand. so you go with optical or coaxial for audio. it works but extra cables.
