Blu-ray audio question

My JVC receiver supports the following audio formats: Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS Digital Surround, DTS Extended Surround and DTS Neo:6

I have a standard 5.1 setup.

Which one is the best audio format for Blu-Ray movies?

you dont really pick. the movie will be encoded in one of the formats natively. if you have the stuff hooked up right, when you play the movie the receiver should switch over to the native format automatically.
most blu-ray movies will be either Dolby Digital or DTS, it will tell you on the back of the case.
they may have the option of other formats such as dolby digital truehd and or dts-ma but you dont need to worry about that if you receiver doesn't have it

prologic ii and dts neo are all emulation. they should only be used if the movie was not recorded in multi-channel.

dolby digital EX is 6.1-7.1
dts es is 6.1

those will appear if you have a 6th or 7th channel hooked up and setup.

I have it setup so when I watch TV, it is set to the ProLogic IIx mode to make the 2 channel audio in the TV sound better. When I play a DVD, it goes to Dolby 5.1, but for some reason Blu-Ray's play in the NEO 6 mode. I think I need to adjust my surround settings.

is your dvd player hooked up with a fiber optic cable? might just need to setup your dvd player to output BITSTREAM.

also, the blu-ray disk may have a sound option you have to set first on the menu to output DD.

Fuckn' a. The optical port on my ps3 is busted, so no multichannel sound for me!

How do you have the Blu-ray hooked up to the receiver? If you have it hooked up via optical or digital coax, then the receiver in the right mode should auto sense the encoded signal and decode it accordingly. Being that you do not have a receiver with advanced surround decoding your receiver is only going to decode the "core" Dolby Digital or DTS soundtrack encoded in the bitstream. That and you will only get Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio over HDMI anyway. Or if you have a Blu-ray player that has 7.1 analog multichannel out and a receiver that has 7.1 analog multichannel in.

If your receiver is indicating an emulated format like NEO then you are doing something wrong. That means the receiver is receiving only a mono or two channel soundtrack. That is unless you are playing a Blu-ray disc of an old movie with a mono or stereo soundtrack that hasn't been remixed to multichannel audio.

I have an HTPC, with SPDIF from my sound card to the reciever. My HTPC has a Blu-Ray/HDDVD drive in it.

The video is connected via HDMI from the video card to the TV.

I think I had the surround setting wrong on my receiver.

Can you connect the HDMI to the receiver instead of the TV, then let the receiver decode the sound and send the picture to the TV set?

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

HDMI is hooked up to the video card, so HDMI is delivering video only.
