Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei


The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

How do I hook up my receiver to my PS3 player and create a surround sound. The amplifier is already connected to a dvd player which is already in surround sound but I can not do the same with the PS3.


If your receiver has another digital audio input available to connect to, such as a coaxial or optical input, you can use either of those for the PS3. Another option is to use one of the composite audio inputs, but however, your surround mode for that type of input will not be Dolby Digital, DTS or any of the high definition surround sound formats. You will instead be able to get one of the Dolby ProLogic formats, or one of the various surround modes that are proprietary to the receiver model by it's digital signal processor...depending on which you choose.

Got a Kenwood vr405 surround receiver, a Sanyo plasma TV, hd cable box and an insignia blu ray player. Both the cable box and the blu ray player are connected via hdmi to the TV and the TV is connected to...


If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

What kind of optical or coaxial cable do i need to get exces to dts and dolby digital


To get DTS and Dolby Digital sound you will need one of a few types of digital cable to connect the digital output on a device to a digital decoder or receiver. One type of digital cable is the SPDIF Coaxial, which is a single cable that can transmit high quality digital audio. Another cable for digital sound is the Toslink Optical cable which uses plastic or glass fibres depending on the cost to transmit light which is then decoded into sound information. With optical cables the signal can break if the cables are bent too much. The other cable that can be used is the HDMI cable, this is used to stream HD video and HD sound formats such as DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD, these can of course stream the standard Dolby Digital and DTS signals, but for what it is worth I would recomend a SPDIF Coaxial cable. These can be found at hi-fi shops and places such as Maplins or Ebay. They are also cheaper than the other digital cables and more reliable than optical ones. Any type will do as long as you have a decoder or home receiver which can convert the digital information into sound. Infact you can use an RCA composite cable and connect that into the coaxial ports at either end. This will transmit the digital information, but not as good quality as a proper coaxial cable, but you still get the DTS and Dolby Digital formats with full surround sound. I hope that this helps.

Cannot get dts surround. I am using a PS3 and the


DTS (digital theater systems) is the name for a company that has it's own proprietary digital encoding for the audio, just as Dolby Digital does. In order for your media to have audio output in DTS, it actually has to be encoded with the DTS software format, AND manually selected by the user to play in that format. Incredible Hulk is NOT encoded in DTS. Select a movie that has the DTS encoding by checking the rear label of the case on the format table.

The display only shows my front speaker icons.


Dont freak out! There isnt anything wrong with your receiver. Its simply telling you that you are not in 5.1 mode. If you havent done so already, hook the PS3 up using an optical cable for sound. An optical cable will provide all 5 channels to the receiver and at the best possible sound quality.

Explanation:
All PS3 games are Blu-ray and mixed into 5.1 channels but you need to set the PS3 to do that as by default it only uses 2.1 because the average user wont have it connected to a surround sound system

Solution:
Now, I want you to go into the control panel of your PS3 and set it to 5.1 DTS output (Dolby Digital isnt that great in my opinion). Restart the PS3 and you should be good to go.

Let me know if that worked or we will try some other options.

Can older receiver support Hdmi with an adapter?


The optical cable will get you 5.1 surround sound - but only if the game has surround sound and your PS3 is set to output surround sound. Even the PS2 will do that. DTS is one 5.1 surround format and the optical cable will handle that too.

Check your settings on the PS3 and make sure you are:
Using the optical out, and
outputting a 5.1 surround signal.

I think you will find your JVC is adequate for this purpose. Please post back if you are unsure of how to set those options.

PS3 with this receiver.


I dont know your reciver but if it has a hdmi input plug ps3 into it and set audio on ps3 to pcm,this will give you digital surround eg multichannel,if not you must use a optical cable from ps3 to reciver and set ps3 audio to digital.
hope this helps.

I have a panasonic SC-PT850 DVD home cinema system, and although it says it is DTS and Dolby 5.1 compatable but it does not give out any sound at all when i play Blueray films or Playstation 3 games which...


Not so much an answer more a shared problem with a slight insight. On the Panasonic manual page 40 http://www.panasonic.ae/EN/Manuals/SC-PT550%20-%20850W.pdf
It states the following: This unit can decode the surround signals received through cable TV box, digital broadcasting or satellite broadcasts. Refer to your equipment’s operating instructions for details. Only Dolby Digital and PCM can be played with this connection.
So it sounds like the SA-PT850 unit will decode DTS from an internal source ie DVD but not from an external source ie ps3 or WDTV which is a shame because I own a WDTV. The solution for me is to convert the dts to ac3 (Dolby digital) which works great. But not sure if this is an option for you.

Audio problem when connecting to a PS3


It seems the Denon and PS3 don't play nice together on DTS. If you take off the DTS setting, then the PS3 will use DD and you'll get surround for games and movies.
