Question about Harman Multimedia AVR-354 Receiver
I have the PS3 connected to the Harman Kardon AVR 354 and it only shows MULTI CH PCM. I was expecting it to say DTS or Dolby, etc.
I have read there are several problems with PS3 and the Harman Kardon but I had read that it was fixed with the updates. My unit has been updated to the latest fix.
Could somebody tell me if it's configuration from my PS3?

Hi Javis. This is perfectly normal ! This mode change is done because the receiver auto detects the digital audio signal and sets the receiver's DSP to decode the signal correctly. You can go into the OSD menu to bypass the auto detection of it, but it's not recommended at all ! You're getting the best audio quality by doing so. Thanks ! cheebster.

See page 40 of this....http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-888-OM-E_004.pdf
It indicates that apparently, encoding other than DD or DTS such as found on DVD, will be displayed as you are seeing it now and that is normal. I'm guessing it's a possibility that at the time of production of your receiver there may have not even been a name yet for the hi-def encoding you find on Blu-ray or HD-DVD...the manual does not mention even being able to display DTS-HD and such on it's panel. Also see page 32, section 4.

Yes, although it (AVR) does not support HDMI only component video.
Connect the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the TV if you have inadequate video inputs, or want to take advantage of the HDMI.

Testimonial: "cheers, have a good year."
I've had the exact problem. HK in the states is no help, you need to deal with a company in Montreal (Jan Industries). Regular techs are unable to fix it without schematics that only authorized dealers have and the manufacturer. This problem happened to me just after 2 years and outside warranty. I've bought a Yamaha today.
