DTS MSB internal card - Available for new HD Format?

I have a TX-DS939 and I really like vs. the newest TX-NR906. However, like the old option card for DTS, I wonder if there's a newer card to accept the new HD codecs like DTS Master Audio for example. I tend to doubt it as they'd want to sell you a newer unit and then again no HDMI but it would still be nice since I spent $2400 back in '99 for this.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: onkyo tx-sr806 reciver ''DTS HD''

hdmi connection between player and AVR. Right?

I am sure you would have also done the first time setup and set all the 7 speaker as well as the subwoofer thru your auto or manual speaker set up and that the reason you are getting Neo6.

On your Receiver, please also check the format of the digital input signal thru "Displaying Source Information" Press the [RECIEVER] button, and then press the [DISPLAY] buttorn repeatedly to cycle thru the available information.

a).. If the information shown say that DTS - ES Discrete, DTS- Matrix, DTS -HD and so on.... then we need to check as to why the receiver is not accepting the signal.
b).If the information shows otherwise and a 7.1 signal is not availalbe, then its possible that the source(in this case the BD player/or the recording is not sending the required signal).

lets take the case (a). In this case if you have all the 7.1 set up in place and you are getting the required signal , then you can assign a default listening mode to each input source that will be selected automatically when you select each input source.

Press [RECEIVER] button followed by [SETUP] button and enter listening mode setup, use up , down buttons to select the input source that you want to set and press [ENTER].

then use [up], [down] button to select the signal format that you want to set.
then use the [[LEFT] and [RIGHT] buttons to select a listening mode.

When you are finished, you can press [SETUP] again.

The above is with experience with ONKYO AV Receivers. In case you have a problem , please let me know so that I can go thru the SETUP menu of your particular receiver i.eTX-SR- 806.

HOpe the above sort out. DO let me know.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

Hello what is the best setting for ps3 slim when played through onkyo 608 pcm or bitstream at the moment it is saying multichanel on the amp if i change it to bitstream it says on the screen some audio...


Bitstream will pass the HD digital audio directly on to the receiver, in either DTS or Dolby format. This allows your receiver to decode these formats. The Onkyo TX-SR608 is capable of decoding all the new HD audio formats, and has quality Burr-Brown digital-analogue converters so it would be a shame not to use bitstream in my opinion.
Electing to output the sound as PCM will utilize the PS3's internal digital audio decoding, and I believe output a two channel analogue signal... which your receiver will then reprocess into simulated surround sound... not ideal really.

No DTS-HDMA or Dolby TrueHD shown on display


DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD cannot be passed to your receiver via bitstream on the PS3. DTS-HDMA cannot be decoded either so you're out of luck there.
Dolby TrueHD can be decoded internally on the PS3 assuming your firmware is up to date. Set the Blu-ray HDMI output to PCM and you can then pass it to your receiver.
If this doesnt work, do a system update on your PS3.

Desply and sound gos off Onkyo TX-DS939


On my device there were quite a few bad solderings on power card. May be you have the same and it does not tolerate heat. Power card is that horizontal one on top, when you open the box. It is easy to remove so that you see under the card to check those solderings. One screw from left side of case, which holds that noise eliminator on AC lines, six screws from back keeping those connectors and four screws away from board corners. I disconnected only that connector in the middle of card, because it was a bit tight. Then I was able to turn that card upside down and after some fixes to those bad solderings device is like new again.

True HD - biggest secret


Are you playing a TrueHD format disc? Just like DTS 5.1 or any other format if your disc isnt coded in TRUEHD then your not going to get it. DTS or other formats cannot be "converted" to TrueHD like the video portion of a standard def disc. At this point there arent alot of TrueHD discs out but be paitent, this may change. Or not, due to the fact there are other "lossless" formats that may be more widely adopted. Sort of like DTS and THX were when DVD first came out. Hope this helps.

Onkyo TX-DS939 optical selection problem help!


That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.

HDMI SOUND


True HD can only work with HDMI interface and is only available on some newer HD DVDs. Check the DVD to see if the True HD encoding is available.
