Go back into the bd player and change the settings back to BITSTREAM to see if your receiver will say DTSMA or Dolby True HD.

Hey Gos when the bd player is set to PCM the player decodes the audio so the receiver will only display MultiC. If the player is set to Bitstream the receiver does the decoding and will say either DTSMA or Dolby True HD. My A3 does not do Bitstream via the hdmi cable it only does PCM so when I use my A3 my receiver says Multi C. From what I have read from PFC5 postings neither setting is right or wrong. I just prefer to see DTSMA or Dolby True HD light up on the receiver. I hope that will clear it up some. If Pycroft sets his BD Player back to Bitstream then he should DTSMA or Dolby True HD. If he doesn't see that then he will need to update his hdmi cable with a HDMI 1.3a cable.

Switched back to bitstream and now it DOES say TrueHD. I guess I should keep it on bitstream. Why would it not decode true hd on the PCM setting?

Anyways...

Thanks for the help! It doesn't sound MUCH different than what it was out before, but like someone said, it's nice to see the light saying it's True HD

The difference is that when set to PCM the player decodes the audio and when set on Bitstream the Onkyo does the decoding. There isn't any sound difference when set to PCM or Bitstream. I prefer Bitstream because I like seeing the display on the Onkyo. Stew likes his set to PCM. I was hoping PFC5 would see this thread because he can give a more technical answer to the Bitstream-PCM definition.

Glad I could help, atleast now you know you are getting True HD and DTSMA. Enjoy!!!!

I am just used to setting my players to do PCM since my main HT AVR (Denon) does not decode any of the HD audio formats. I have toyed with the PCM and bitstream to my Onkyo and notice no difference in sound.

Awesome. I knew Junk had the same setup and his works..... Do you have a DTS-Master disc you can try now to see how that works??

Everything I've read on the newer receivers is that neither setting is wrong. Its just personal preference and there is no difference in the sound.

Almost forgot...any comments about the speaker settings, etc. I'd love to know if those settings sound correct.

You Highdefforum peeps are the best!

I'm glad you're asking all these questions Pycroft, as the Onkyo 606 is supposed to be delivered tomorrow and the BD35 will be here this week or next. I look forward to all the answers you're getting...it's kind of a library of info for the future!!!
