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.

How do I connect Optical Audio or HDMI to Sony MHC-GN100D, to have 5.1 & Dolby sound effects?


I guess you are in the same boat as me.
There are Digital (optical) to analog signal converters available. You can use them. I checked on ebay and here are the converts available on ebay India.

Playing a blu ray disk on PS3 connected with optical cable to the Onkyo, I only get a PCM signal, no DTS or 5.1 (although this is available on the BD)


Hi there,

In theory, your receiver's decoder should be able to automatically "detect" the incoming audio format. But, this only occurs if the device playing the disc is sending the correct audio format.

So, with this said, there should be a fun tion on your PS3 where you can manually select either Dolby 5.1 or DTS 5.1. Both of these are opposing formats (i.e. can only output one format at a time).

If you were to play a movie disc from a standard DVD player into your Onkyo receiver, you would normally have to manually select DTS 5.1 audio from the disc menu.

Does the PS3 menu allow you to manually select the audio output?

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.

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


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.

Sound skipping while playing Blu Ray


HI, make sure the audio out put on the ps3 is set to hdmi and set to stream dolby digital,aac, dts, etc,then set audio input on your 696 to hdmi,also check that audio out for hdmi is set to off in the hardware menu on your amp,if you still have problems use the optical out on the ps3 as the ps3 does not out put hd master audio or dolby true hd only pcm, you will still get dolby digital.

hope this helps.

No DTS-HDMA or Dolby TrueHD shown on display


DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD cannot be passed to your receiver via bitstream on the PS3. DTS-HDMA cannot be decoded either so you're out of luck there.
Dolby TrueHD can be decoded internally on the PS3 assuming your firmware is up to date. Set the Blu-ray HDMI output to PCM and you can then pass it to your receiver.
If this doesnt work, do a system update on your PS3.

No dolby digitaL ON BLU-RAY FIMLS played thro a ps3,


prologic is a form of dolby digital, the 4.0 or 5.1 (versions I and II respectively) to be exact. the type of dolby version is determined by the source disk. the reciever may expand a dolby digital signal into 7.1 but it is actually a 5.1 standard, as is prologicII

No Audio when I play Blu-Ray discs with Dolby TrueHD


For dolby digital to work you have to have the optical or coax cable hooked up to the reciever ,The HDMI cable is for digital video and audio output but does not support dolby digital out the cable into your reciever , so just turn off the dolby digital on your reciever and you should hear the sound.
here is more info

Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless multi-channel audio codec developed by Dolby Laboratories which is intended primarily for high-definition home-entertainment equipment such as Blu-ray Disc. It is the successor to the AC-3 Dolby Digital surround sound codec which was used as the audio standard for DVD discs. In this application, Dolby TrueHD competes with DTS-HD Master Audio, another lossless codec from Digital Theater System.
Dolby TrueHD uses Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) as its mathematical basis for compressing audio samples. MLP was used on the earlier DVD-Audio format, but details of TrueHD and DVD-Audio differ substantially. A Dolby TrueHD bitstream can carry up to 14 discrete sound channels. Sample depths up to 24 bits/sample and audio sample rates up to 192 kHz are supported. Like the more common legacy codec Dolby Digital, TrueHD bitstreams carry program metadata. Metadata is separate from the coding format and compressed audio samples, but stores relevant information about the audio waveform. For example, dialog normalization and Dynamic range compression are controlled by metadata embedded in the TrueHD bitstream.
