True HD sound problem
OK, I got a new Yamaha receiver and a Blu Ray player connected via HDMI cable. I can not get the sound to play in True HD however, just Dolby Digital.
The DVD player is an LG, BH100 (plays HD and Blu Ray DVD's)
The DVD manual says this...
Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD capabilty limited to 5.1 channels
Dolby True HD processing for 2 channels only.
WTF does that mean? I thought True HD was only supported via an HDMI connection. This player does not even talk about hooking itself up to an amp via HDMI, only digital coax or optical cables.
Then a little later it says this:
In Bitstream Mode the player does NOT support DTS-HD audio on some HD DVD and abnormal audio will output from audio out jack. To listen to DTS-HD audio, you must set the SPDIF option to PCM.
So, I gues I am asking if I am just fucked on this player and really won;t be able to get True HD sound out of it?
No mater what I set, how I connect it, etc. I can never get the True HD light on the Yamaha to lite up. I t just says PCM and has 2 speakers lit up, or says DOlby Digital,a dn has 7 speakers lit up (sounds good, but it is not True HD!).
They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time
