Question about Sony STR-DA50ES Receiver

Audio Distortion with STR-DA50ES and DTS-HD Blu-Ray

When playing Blu-ray discs that use DTS-HD for the audio track, the audio is sometimes distored (or garbled). Usually it's noticeable with some dialog. Some movies have been much worse than others.

This is an older receiver, so only has Toslink digital (optical) inputs (no HDMI). This also means it can't decode DTS-HD, so the Blu-ray player I have (Panasonic DMP-BD60) is configured to downmix to regular DTS.

Is the only solution an upgrade to a more modern receiver? Or could this be a problem with the player (e.g. DTS-HD to DTS transcoding bug)?

What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.

Method of reserving TrueHD audio and DTS Master Audio while backup blu-rays on...


Because of their wonderful and excellent acoustical properties, Dolby TrueHD audio and DTS-HD Master Audio can always provide people with amazing high-definition surround sound experience and put you right in the middle of the action. To experience the full potential of Blu-ray discs, people prefer to reserve the two terrific audio tracks while backup Blu-ray movies. The thing is that most Blu-ray programs are not good at recognizing both of the special audio tracks, fortunately, there are also some Blu-ray rippers have successfully added powerful support for Dolby TrueHD audio and DTS-HD Master Audio ,Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac is one among them. If you are a Mac user, and looking for a program to help you keep TrueHD audio or DTS-HD Master Audio of your Blu-ray movie, as well as let audio and video match well during the process of copying, then this one is a nice choice.
Following contents will take TureHD audio as an example, and show you how to have access to Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac to reserve your preferred audio track in detail. Hope you can get what you need from it Step 1: Load Blu-ray movies
Click "DVD Folder" or "IFO File" to import Blu-ray files.

Step 2: Select Dolby TrueHD audio, output format and specify save path
Tick off whatever .m2ts streams you want to copy. Generally speaking, select the .m2ts video stream with the longest playing time will be OK, because it is the main movie of the Blu-ray. Of course, if you would like to copy the extras of the Blu-ray movie, you can select several .m2ts files at a time, and check "Merge into one file" to combine them all to be as a single file.
Click the drop-down list of "Audio" option, then a list of audio tracks will be presented, and normally, the first one should be Dolby TrueHD, if in doubt, you can play them one by one to check which one is the proper Dolby TrueHD audio track you want.
Meanwhile, you should select output format from the drop-down list of "Format", here I choose "MKV HD Video (*.mkv) for instance, or if you just need copy Blu-ray movies without any quality loss and changing video format, you can select "Copy" and then "Directly Copy". After that, click "Browse" button to specify where to store the output files, if not, the program will export the output file to the default save path automatically, and these files can be easily found via clicking "Open" button as soon as copying work is completed.

Step 3: Set advanced settings
Click "Settings" button, and then you can adjust audio and video parameters such as video and audio codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels on the interface showing below. To keep Dolby TrueHD audio to full extent, 6 channels is your choice.

Step 4: Start Blu-ray ripping
As soon as the above mentioned settings are finished, now just click "Convert" button to start [url=http://www.pavtube.com/blu-ray-ripper-mac/]Blu-ray ripping[/url], the ripping info including ripping process, time elapse, estimated left time, estimated file size, and generated file size are all shown clearly on the following window. In that way, you can make good control of your disk space as well as your time during the ripping process.

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.

Different Audio options from an older receiver


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.

NO SURROUND SOUND WHEN PLAYING BLU-RAY


Your amplifier should "downgrade" the signal to 5.1, even if the disc isn't using it. It is most likely a setting on your amp that may need adjusting for "types" of digital to accept on its input. If you can, set your optical input on your amp to "auto". This way it will automatically detect and switch for the proper incoming audio feed
