Each of the modes are true surround sound. Some are newer and may have advantages/disadvantages depending on personal preference. Prologic is the oldest of the listed, followed by dolby and dts. You can perform a google search to see the differences in dolby and dts but they should both be equally good. I prefer dts.

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 should I connect my denon avr 1906 to my 32" ES6300 Series 6 SMART 3D Full HD LED TV Model numberUE32ES6300U in order to get dolby digital from the tv's tuner please?


Use an optical cable.

Be aware though. Your TV has a DVB-T tuner. It picks up the Freeview standard definition (SD) channels, but not the Freeview HD ones. Dolby Digital sound only comes from the Freeview HD channels.

Your TV will pass Dolby Digital from any source connected to a HDMI port to the Optical Out. It will also pass DTS. But the internal Freeview DVB-T tuner doesn't generate Dolby Digital, just stereo and stereo with Dolby Surround encoding where you use ProLogic II for decoding.

Please don't panic and think that there is anything wrong with your Yamaha receiver. A lot of people are having this problem with set top box reception. Time lag / phase differences caused by satellite transmission can make your Receivers digital decoders go nuts !!!.The working principal is too complex to explain on this page. I have had clients call up and say on some channels only one speaker works in a 5.1 setup !!!!.You noticed DD and DTS signals are working fine.

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.

If you are playing media that has both dolby digital audio and dts audio, your player and your receiver will decode the first audio codec listed first by default unless you select it otherwise yourself. If your remote or receiver has an A.F.D. (auto format decode) button, press it until your display shows that the sound source is dolby digital or DTS, whichever sound mode it was you wanted when you started your DVD.

This receiver does not support DTS HD Master audio and/or Dolby TrueHD
which is true blu ray audio.But it will allow the full HD quality of 1080p video to pass through to your tv...meaning if your TV is capable of FULL HD(1080P) then you will get bluray video but audio will only be Dolby digital.That is still really good and the difference will be felt only if you have a dedicated Home therater system with 5 or 7 channels of speakers in your room and separate subwoofer.

Anyways this is a good network receiver and you should be enjoying a lot of internet radio.

Yamaha HTR -6130 DTS?????


First, the sound source must also be in DTS. DTS is typically not the default audio selection on any DVDs that have that format...you'll have to select it.

Hooking up multiple components to HTR 6030


Once you have installed all the cables to the system, you will need to go in to the Yamaha's system settings (see owner's manual) and assign the audio inputs accordingly. The DVD input will need to be set to the optical input # you have selected. Optical and digital coax are not preset in most cases. Once you get to the input selection assign the digital # for DVD and then exit out. You should begin to hear the audio immediately. If not you missed a step. I do this for a living and every unit has its own routine you need to learn.  Enjoy the system Rob

What Blu Ray to buy for ONKYO TX-NR801 for Dolby TrueHD, etc???


Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals.  The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV.  In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal.  Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo.  In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching.  This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV.  This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver.  That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.
