Sony DAV-SC5 not playing 5.1 through the optical input from sky/blu ray

I have the DAV SC5 and have just bought a sony blu-ray player, i have connected the blu ray by optical and set the output settings. But on the DAV all i get is pro logic surround and not 5.1/DTS. Am i doing something wrong i keep reading reviews that the dav can accept 5.1 from a sky+ box b ut it does not show on the display. Can anyone help me ?

Hi,

The DAV supports Dolby Digital® DTS 5.1 audio. Make sure your blueray movie has 5.1 track and is outputting to the DAV.

    Also, are you using the HDMI output on your Blue Ray player?

    So you are hooked up to your TV with HDMI and to your DAV via optical. May I please know which Blue Ray player you have. Thanks.

    Hi,



    Did you make sure that downmix PCM is not enabled on your Blue Ray player on both DTS/Dolby Digital?

How do I connect Sony S590 3D Blu Ray to Analog TV & Sony DAV-DX255 Home Entertainment Center


It depends what connections the TV has. If it has HDMI sockets then you should be able to connect the player via one of them. The sound should be connected using an optical lead from the player to the Sony Center.
However you will not be ever be able to play a 3D movie till you have a 3D TV. It will simply not work.
So at the moment you have purchased a an expensive 3D player which can only play back normal Blu-Ray's and DVD.

How to connect other dvd or HDMI player into dav-sc5 for amblification


If your alternate DVD player has digital audio out you can make this connection via the 'optical digital in' port on the rear of the unit which corresponds to the Video 2 function. I have done this myself because the inbuilt DVD function in the Sony unit is dead (fixed once under warranty, problem recurred about a year later, same issue as other unsolved posts on this board, DVD function hangs, system won't switch off, etc. common problem with this unit, crap product).

Component Video Connection


what you have done is you are sending a component video signal from your system to your tv and the sound i assume comes through the 5.1 surrond speakers. The DVD's you play the sound would naturally come from the 5.1 surround speakers, unless your instruct the dvd player to send the sound to the tv in which case will only be played as stereo. you will need inputs on your dav system to take sound from your tv outputs or digital box by way of red and white phono leads or a digital/optical input if you have them; so as to play the sound from cable tv or sattelite tv through your 5.1 surround speakers.
