Question about Audio Players & Recorders
First I did the auto set up with the microphone on the receiver. I obviously have them hooked up and sound comes out of them. All 7 speaker pictures are illuminated during tests. The minute I go back to a TRUEHD sound movie the surround speaker icons go away from my receiver display and no sound from them. (I tried both Iron Man and new Indiana Jones)
I have spent the last 2 hours scouring the manuals of both my Blue Ray player and my Yamaha receiver. I have the audio output of the blue ray set to HDMI and PCM(apparantly Bitstream wouldnt allow me to turn off straight on my receiver). Either way I tried both.
The receiver Rear surround is set to small x2 and I have tried every input and setting on the receiver...its says HDMI and 7 Channel Stereo in the display.
I am fresh out of ideas on why my surround speakers turn off. anyone know this problem?
The best way to get Dolby sound working is to connect the components using the optical links.
As long as you are using PCM the Dolby sounds will never get to your system. It's switching the Dolby sound off as soon as it detects PCM. I think the only way you will get Dolby on is via a optical cable which should let you have bitstream.

I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.
I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

SOURCE: 5.1 Surround Sound Cutting Out
Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure,
only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.

Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.

It is not necessarily what features you have to look for, it is what connections you need to look for. Most blu ray players have the hdmi ports. On my blue ray I found it and it has the fiber optic end. I have used that and to me it sound just as good.
