I have the sony STR-DA5300ES amplifier and a sony a sony wega 70' tv with a dvi connection.For blu-ray I set the a video setting on the amplifier to use hdmi for video and an optical input for sound. I set the ps3 optical for dts 5.1 and dolby 5.1 , but I only get 2 channel sound when playing a blu-ray disc. I get great 5. (1?) sacd sound through an hdmi connection as long as the tv is off. I do notice that on some blu-rays rhe intro sourroun sound kicks in just for an intro segment. Some of the blu-ray disks only give me the option of dolby or dts hd sound no regular 5.1 sound. When i play a game i get perfect 5.1 through the optical cable Ianf
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

cant use both hdmi and opti outs try sum setting in blue ray but u nee dto plug all blue ray dish directto samsung hdmi then 1 master digital out form tv to sterio digital i n ok tell samsung your output also
Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.
Yes but first thing, the blu-ray disc you are playing must be 5.1 to get true 5.1. If it is an older movie/TV show, then it might be only 2 channel audio. If this is the case, then your Bose system needs to create simulated 5.1 surround sound, which is not true 5.1. However, if your blu-ray disc is a true 5.1, then your PS3 needs to be set to output 5.1. I am not familiar with the PS3 so I am not sure where to located that setting. Also, try other blu-ray discs.
as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.
If it does it with just the one disc it is probably the file that you burned. Does the file sound ok on the computer? Sometimes files that are downloaded have bad audio tracks and I have seen cases where the encoding software that you are using messes up the file when it is modifying the file. Try another DVD or Blu-Ray disc and see if it still distorts. If it does then it may be a setting in the player or in the receiver.
I am posting this to try and get everyones audio problem for this receiver fixed. If you only connected the HDMI cable to the 510, you will not get sound. This receiver passes through HDMI only, no processing of audio. You must either connect a fiber optic or digital coax to the 510 for that respective HDMI input from the BD player, the DVD HDMI only accepts digital coax, and the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic. If you BD player does not have digital coax out for audio, you must move the connection to Video2 HDMI and connect fiber optic to the Video2 fiber input. Sony butchered the whole purpose of HDMI with this receiver. Hope this heps you. By the way, it is hardware, no firmware update will correct this.
