Question about Onkyo TX-DS696 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound skipping while playing Blu Ray

The sound will cut out whenever I play a Blu Ray using the PS3. Anyone else have a PS3 and have used any options available on the receiver or the PS3 to prevent the sound skipping? It works fine with every other device I have connected to it (360, PC, MAC).

    The model of the 696 I have is the TX-DS696 and it is a couple years old. It doesn't have any HDMI inputs or outputs. It has 3 optical inputs. 1 of them being the actual optical plug and two of them that look like normal analog inputs. So I have it hooked up to an optical selector that I switch between PC, MAC, and the 360. The 360 and the PS3 use the same plug on the selector and I just switch them out according to the one I'm going to be using. I don't have any problems with the 360 sound or any of the other systems. I already have set the settings in the PS3 to have it do video out on HDMI and sound out on Optical with Dolby Digital, DTS, and AAC selected. There is no distortion of the video when it skips. I have also noticed that it is doing it not only with Blu Ray movies, but with games as well. The sound just cuts out for a couple seconds then returns.

    Nothing happens on screen. The sound just cuts out. I have an optical audio cord going from my ps3 straight into my receiver and then I have an HDMI cable going into my TV. So it wouldn't make sense to run audio through the HDMI cable. This setup works fine with every device I have except the PS3. I don't know if it is certain settings under the audio tab like enabling AAC or linear PCM and so forth. I've tried different combinations, but to no avail. thanks for the help

    Hi,
    When the sound cuts out does the video skip or do weird things?

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.

On PS3 80 GB no sound when playing blu ray


I have not personally experienced this problem but reading up on the problem looks like changing the blu ray at 24hz setting (if on turn off and vice versa) resolves the issue. Other than than double check to ensure you are not set up for component in the settings, if that fails may want to replace your HDMI cable as it is not carrying the sound signal as it should.

My PS3 has no sound when game starts. It does have sound before game. Also, the Blu-Ray movies skip & dont play.


It sounds like the sound signal type might be incorrect. I'd go into sound settings in the options menu, and when it asks whether you want manual or automatic, choose manual. Tell it to send regular PCM audio instead of the default Dolby settings, and see if this fixes your issues.

No picture but sound


Check the 24 Hz setting in the BD/Blu-ray setting area. Some televisions do not support this option. Turn it off. It will prevent blu-ray movies from playing.

Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films


I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

NO SURROUND SOUND WHEN PLAYING BLU-RAY


Your amplifier should "downgrade" the signal to 5.1, even if the disc isn't using it. It is most likely a setting on your amp that may need adjusting for "types" of digital to accept on its input. If you can, set your optical input on your amp to "auto". This way it will automatically detect and switch for the proper incoming audio feed

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies


You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
