I had a similar thing happen once a few years ago with a Pioneer Ax5i it was to do with "signal select" it's on page 47 of your LX85 Manual. Basically an idiot brother in law had been messing about with the amp when i was out when i went to play something no sound took me ages to suss but it was a couple of button presses of signal select that sorted it
Try it and see if that helps.
Signal select is not a changeable parameter for the BD input, it is changeable on the other HDMI inputs.
Yeah we can rule that one out.

I was trying to add a note on my post but you must have responded whilst I was typing and cut me off
I cannot see anything on my 85 that would stop the HD Audio, I am thinking the same as you that it must be the 751.

Ok Michael i'm thinking more the 751 as well but can't be sure.
OK let us know how you get on.
Hi Michael Hoy,
I called Richer Sounds last week but their guy wasn't too helpful or lacked the knowledge. I've reset the 751 a number of times but have had no joy in resolving the problem. I should add that the sound I am getting with LPCM on the 751 sounds great but is only across the front. It's strange that it worked perfectly and only recently lost the surrounds. I may call RS and argue my case a bit harder. Thanks for the support.
I was sorry to read about the problems you’re having with your equipment.
So that I can have one of my technical colleagues contact you with a view to resolving to your satisfaction, please would you email me with your sale and contact details? My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, my apologies for the inconvenience, and I hope to hear from you soon.
Hello Michael Hoy and v1c.
I have been in touch with Cambridge Audio through their online support system. I have also been in touch with Pioneer through their online support.
I have had a reply from CA but have heard nothing from Pioneer.
As you can see, Richer Sounds has also been in touch and this is great. Thanks for your help over the weekend. Will let you know what the solution is when I get there.
I am sure Richer Sounds will sort it out if it is the 751, it may be worth ringing Pioneer, the email response can be a little slow sometimes.
Let me know how you get on.
