Question about Marantz SR5007
Digital decoding of the surround sound signal from my various hdmi inputs (ps3 and skytv digital), doesn't work properly. When set to auto it always plays stereo, regardless of the source (e.g. 5.1 DTS from a bluray played through ps3), and even if I explicitly select DTS or Dolby the sound from the left, right and surround channels is strange (DTS makes the trebble sound like it's a muddled/corrupted, dolby sounds like it's just old school pro logic, and neither of them sound like it's properly decoding the signal). The speakers are fine and play beautifully with an ordinary stereo source, and the HDMI sources worked fine with my previous receiver.

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.
