Audio formats I have a ps3, a sony bravia full 1080 and I have updated the ps3 with the latest firmware but when I play a blu ray that indicates dolby true or dts hd the receiver wont select that format on display. I can scroll through some of the other formats in listening modes like neo6, select2, dolby ex on display but I cannot get dolby true hd or any other hd format working even though I have hdmi 1.3 cables as well

    Won't receive signal for Dolby True HD and DTS Master audio for ps3. I am using HDMI cables!

  • NickyGee Feb 02, 2009

    I have the PS3 with the 2.60 firmware, the onyko 706 receiver. HDMI 1.3 cable from PS3 to the receiver. No matter what the audio format is on the Disc, all I get on the receiver's display is THX cinema. I currently have a 5.1 setup that has been setup by the Audessy.

Even if you update the firmware of yoour Sony PS3 it is not capable of sending out TrueHD or DTS Master audio formats bit to bit.  That is the reason why you are not able to choose TrueHD or DTS Master from your listening mode.  The only time you will be able to choose these modes is if the receiver receives these signals from the source.  To know what signal you are receiving, you can press the "Display" button in front of your panel.  When you do that I believe what it would give you is PCM which is uncompressed audio.

I have a BDP S-350 blu-ray player that just started having a problem playing a couple of blu-ray discs that I get from Netflix. The disc will load and start then will stop playing after about 10 seconds....


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in playing the new Blu-ray disc in the Sony Blu-ray Player.

In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content on the new Blu-ray discs is making these issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is).

Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.

I'm sure, installing the firmware update should resolve the issue. If you need any further clarification/assistance, please let me know.


Thanks for understanding.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

Will the Sony STR-DG820 receiver support 3D?


I have this amp and mine does not have the latest firmware (indicated by a green or blue dot near the serial number) and it does not pass through Audio or Video when a 3D Blu-Ray is played in my PS3 although my TV (Sony Bravia XBR-52HX909) does say "3D Video Signal Detected." No audio or video ever plays but the PS3 looks like it's playing.

I have a sony blu-ray player but it will not play bluray films, it will play dvd. are thers any settings to change/ picture is blured, will not play in 1080. thanks dennis


You should download the latest firmware from the website and update your player. If that does not work, the blu-ray lens eye is bad. There are 2 lasers that read discs, one red and one blue. The red reads normal dvd. The blu reads blu-ray.

My ps3 plays movies but wont recognize games


The PS3 uses a different laser for DVD's, Blu-Ray disks, and CD's. It's quite likely that just the Blu-ray diode has crapped out. have you upgraded to firmware 3.10

For the player to work perfectly the lens needs to be clean. One piece of dirt can cripple your PS3 and end up with your PS3 not playing games. This dirt needs to be cleaned off the lens occasionally to avoid you having ps3 problems loading games.

Try these steps to resolve this issue:

You could be facing a lens related issue or corrupted firmware problem

try this

1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format your PS3, this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

3. Try cleaning the blu-ray drive lens with a Blu Ray Lens Cleaner

if this does not help, i suggest should be send to Sony for repairs in case your PS3 is under warranty your replacement drive may be covered still you need to check with PS3 customer support, Laser replacement would cost you around $130.

Hope this helps, and please do rate my solution, Happy Holidays and Happy gaming ahead!
