Question about Kenwood VR-405 Receiver
I have an older Kenwood Receiver (VR-405), that processes dolby digital 5.1...it has no HDMI output. The HDMI plug only goes from the TV to the bly ray disc player
I just got a Blu-ray disc player...Am I able to get sound from a blu-ray disc when it only has PCM 5.1?
The receiver has no DTS...can I not play any blu-ray disc that has only DTS-HD MA 5.1, or is there a way to bypass that?
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.

I have the 405 and a Samsung 3600 which has onboard DTS Master/ Dolby True HD. Out of the 6 movies I 've watched, only 2 have given me Dolby Digital. Bottom line: If the movie doesn't have DD, you cant get DD on the 405. I thought just about all blu rays had DD but its not so. Its time for us to upgrade!
