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.

No dolby digical in DVD mode.

PCM mode will not output dobly digital, use the digital cable connection, not RCA cables, set DVD audio output menu to Dolby digital or DTS. On DVD software menu setup select audio then Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby Surround.

You may need to set up the receiver for your speaker configuration. There should be a setup menu on the receiver, and that will allow you to tell the amp what speakers you are using, and what inputs you are connecting what devices to. You may also need to set your DVD player, cable box and TV for the audio stream you want to use. PCM or Bitstream to be more precise. Also make sure that the sound output is set to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Digital and the input signal is in stereo or surround.

Best Wishes.

The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.

HTR-5240 Will not play audio when switching to DSP

Most likely your DSP board is bad, usually a pretty costly repair and sometimes the board is hard to find in stock.
