Just purchased the Onkyo NR818 to replace my audio only Sony receiver.
Got it working to a cetain extent. Impressed with the sound from Blurays.
Not so sure about Sky yet... Have I got this configured right?
I'm not clear what I should see on the receiver front panel.
On Sky box:
- Digital Audio Out is set to Dolby. I know this is ok as it was doing multichannel to the old Amp.
Sky Box has HDMI lead to HDMI2 on Onkyo.
Also Optical lead to Optical 2 on Onkyo
- Input Assign->HDMI - Input CBL/Sat = HDMI2
- Digital Audio Input - CBL/Sat = Optical 2
- Audio Selector = Optical
Audio Selector->Fixed Mode - If set to anything but Off, no sound
Audio Selector = HDMI
Audio Selector->Fixed Mode - Sound if off or PCM. No Sound if DTS
- Listening Mode Preset->CBL/Sat - All set to Last Valid
- HDMI->HDMI Control = On
With the above setup (with audio selector = Optical),
on a Sky channel which is showing a programme tagged as DD,
Onkyo shows on display, all 5 speakers, dts lit and "Direct"
On other HD channels, I get all 5 speakers, displayed, dts lit and "PLII Movie"
Have I got this configured right?
