Can older receiver support Hdmi with an adapter?

I have a JVC RX8020V receiver. I am trying to get DTS and HD sound from my PS3, but evidently an optical cable will not do the job. I know the JVC receiver is older, but I do not want to replace it simply for one single HDMI input. Is there anyway around this?

Thank You

    I read other places that the only way to get dolby truehd and DTS is through the HDMI. I have the settings on the PS3 set to output both DD and DTS (through the optical cable option), but only DD is working (which is good, but I have read that DTS is superior). When I select only DTS in the PS3 settings, the receiver defaults back to prologic? However, when playing an older DVD with both DD and DTS encoded, DTS will appear on my receiver when I select the audio output from the DVD menu. Is this simply because some Bluray's do not support DTS?



    On one Bluray I have, it gives the option of 5.1 uncompressed. when I select it it defaults back to prologic?



    Thanks for your help!

    One more question... I have a KDF-50E2000 LCD projection TV with a "digital audio optical out" in the back. I have my HDMI running from my PS3 to my TV, and then my optical cable going from my PS3 directly to my receiver. Would it make a difference if Instead of having my Optical going from the PS3 directly to the receiver, having it go from the "Digital audio optical out" from the TV to the receiver?

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.

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.

RX-V465 Yamaha Reciver we can get picture but no sound w/PS3


Check HDMI Sound settings:
Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV).
Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.

You may need to enter the setup menu on the PS3 and enable the decoding for blu-ray discs.

Different Audio options from an older receiver


If your receiver has a multichannel input and the player has the multchannel output then that is the only way you can get surround sound from it with source inputs that it cannot decode, such as DTS. The player will then do it alone.
However, in the setup menu of the blu ray player you should be able to change the audio output to downmix to 2ch audio...at least you'll get to watch the movie.

Sound skipping while playing Blu Ray


HI, make sure the audio out put on the ps3 is set to hdmi and set to stream dolby digital,aac, dts, etc,then set audio input on your 696 to hdmi,also check that audio out for hdmi is set to off in the hardware menu on your amp,if you still have problems use the optical out on the ps3 as the ps3 does not out put hd master audio or dolby true hd only pcm, you will still get dolby digital.

hope this helps.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

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.

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.

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.
