Just been playing some Blu-rays but it is not working, any ideas? Master audio and the rest are working. The amp is a Pioneer Vsx-lx70!
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad Air & iPhone 4S.
Jase Fox had a problem didn't he with this amp?
Any ideas? Worse comes to worse I will swap with my Dad again!
It just says Dolby Digital!
Is the Blu-ray definitely set to the Dolby TrueHD soundtrack? Some older ones defaulted to the Dolby Digital and you had to manually select the TrueHD version.
I can't believe this! Yep, just put Bon Jovi in which is Dolby True HD by default and not working just says Dolby digital, how can that be? Tried the Batman's originally and went into languages but would not work!
Jase Fox had another problem:
With an oppo I'd be using the blu ray player to decode anyway.
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Why would you do that?
It just reads PCM then.
DTS, master audio, Dolby digital all working.
IF there are any differences in quality of which component decodes then I'd trust the oppo more. If not, you don't lose anything.
That's correct if the Blu-ray player is decoding.
If the Blu-ray is setup correctly (i.e. check Secondary audio isn't enabled as this defaults the main soundtrack as I remember), then sounds like the amp is faulty I'm afraid.
Just reads PCM and sounds quieter.
Yes the AVR will read PCM but you will be getting the proper soundtrack, decoded by the oppo. And turn the volume up!
Yesterday I was messing around with 3D and did change some things, but I am pretty sure I am back to how I was. One thing I can do is hook up my Pioneer Blu-ray player and see if that is working. I will do that next.
I don't like doing it that way.
