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.

CABLE GUY.

Set the receiver for auto audio input - I think that you are getting caught out between MPEG and DTS audio. If you have the wrong one for the audio source then you hear nothing.

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.

Not showing DTS MASTEr OR DG True HD


In the menu is an option for switching master and true hd on. Standard its of and played als normal dts/dolby.

also: check the input (blu ray?): maybe it is set to only output no high def signals, so the amlifier doest recieve hd sound..

If I'm not mistake, it's dependant on you monitor's ability to display 1080p. I believe the defaul setting on the 94TXH is to read the TV's max resolution and anything above will not feed.
