Hello, To test the subwoofer when the blue light is on if you apply your thumb to the end of the subwoofer cable (the end that you would plug into the receiver) there should be feedback from the sub. If there is no feedback then the sub is not working correctly. Thanks, FJD

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.

The output stage has been damaged. Time to repair it at an Onkyo service department.

Hold the "VCR/DVD" button while pressing the "On/Standby" button, and the receiver should enter "Standby." Turn it on again by pressing the "On/Standby" button. Bear in mind that this will clear all the presets and other settings - but it may be those settings that are causing the problems.

You need to check 3 things:

1) DTS will only work through a digital connection (coaxial, optical, or HDMI) between your receiver and dvd player. DTS and Dolby 5.1 cannot carry a signal over red and white rca connections.

2) After number 1 is solved ensure the reciever is set to the digital channel, your DTS-HD in this case, or in an auto mode.

3) Finally the most important is that the signal is a DTS signal. Start a DTS capable dvd, go to the sound menu and set it for DTS.

Press play and all should be well...

Pressing the Setup button on the remote should make it leave the setup menu.

Hello Randy Risher, At this point being that you are not getting any audio from any source, I would suggest a reset. To do this press and hold down the Tape 1 input on the receiver. While holding that button down press the Direct Tuning button. You will see the word CLEAR in the screen which indicates that you have done the reset correctly. If after the reset the audio does not return then the unit would have to go in for service. However, being that it is very old (2004 model) it's not guaranteed that there are parts available for the receiver. I would call our product support team at 800-229-1687 x3 to see if your receiver is eligible for trade in program. Thanks, FJD

Are you playing a TrueHD format disc? Just like DTS 5.1 or any other format if your disc isnt coded in TRUEHD then your not going to get it. DTS or other formats cannot be "converted" to TrueHD like the video portion of a standard def disc. At this point there arent alot of TrueHD discs out but be paitent, this may change. Or not, due to the fact there are other "lossless" formats that may be more widely adopted. Sort of like DTS and THX were when DVD first came out. Hope this helps.

Hello, with the source playing press the display button on the remote. What format do you see? Thank you, CB

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?
