No 7.1 Audio on 7.1 Blu-ray
Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated as I can`t fathom this one out at all.
I have connected 7.1 speakers to an Onkyo TXNR609 AV receiver and very recently purchased my first 7.1 blu-ray concert DVD (Chris Botti in Boston). I purchased it through Amazon.co.uk, it`s an American import which came via Switzerland and I have no reason to suspect it to be at fault.
The audio spec on the cover of the blu-ray is Dolby TrueHD 7.1/5.1 Surround (96khz/24 bit) (includes Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround (640kbps) PCM (uncompressed) Stereo (48khz/24 bit)
I`m playing it through a Samsung BD-P1500 connected to the receiver via HDMI 1.4
The Samsung audio setup is set to Bitstream (Audiophile) and this setting works fine for all other 5.1 encoded blu-rays.
When I load the disc into the Samsung, the menu appears and I am able to select 7.1 Dolby TrueHD. At this point, all the correct speaker icon symbols appear on the Onkyo display.
Then, when I select “Play All” or “Song Select” the icon display on the Onkyo changes to shows 5.1 throughout the entire concert. The only other information on the display is “Audyssey Dynamic EQ” and, (in red characters) “Dolby TrueHD”.
I`m not sure if my Samsung blu-ray player is at fault (as it is a few years old) the audio spec on the BD-P1500 says 96khz sampling 4hz to 44khz (but no mention of 24 bit).
I was really looking forward to listening to this 7.1 Dolby TrueHD blu-ray concert but for some reason it`s only letting me have 5.1 audio.
