Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Marantz SR-7200 Receiver. I recently bought a Sony Blu-ray player and LG 47" HGTV. I am having issues getting the surround sound quality that I used to get when hooked up with my Panasonic TV and DVD player. I don't get surround sound, instead I get the same level of sound from all speakers. I have tried various settings including S-surround ON. So far it has been hit and miss. Sometimes I get the "surround experience" and other times I don't.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

Hi, I have just completed this installation myself.
You are correct, HDMI to Amp Input from Bluray and then HDMI from Amp output to TV. Coloured cables are not required to operate the bluray now.
