Thank you; I have suspected that there are titles that are just not flagged -- but EVERY disc in my collection DOES NOT read as "Dolby D EX" as it's supposed to; can EVERY disc be unflagged? Is there some kind of hiccup with the Onkyos?

I don't have an answer for the second question. I use the HDMI and let the receiver bitstream the trueHD/DTS. I do use multichannel for an older dvd player. the oppo 971.

Yeah, bitstreaming takes all the questions and worries out; I'm just wondering because I'm running just HDMI but sending multichannel PCM over it for decoded TrueHD tracks, are the settings I have made in the player correct so the RECEIVER processes them...

I remember getting multichannel when I use my ps3.. but then the ps3 would say whatever it was reading..

which is weird. .for your first question.. my ps3 reads more dolby digital ex & DTS es etc.. then the panasonic.. I remember now having that happen.. which was weird. it was doing the pcm on the ps3.. not the bitstreaming.

That IS weird -- what you're suggesting here is that the PLAYERS are deciding whether or not to send that "EX" or "ES" designation to the receiver...

Anyone else have this issue with their Onkyos -- that is, discs carrying Dolby EX or DTS ES soundtracks don't indicate "EX" or "ES" on the front displays?

I remember that it did do that on the ps3 a while back.. I tried it again today and it was more or less the same. I have no idea if when I did the firmware update changed that or not.

I dont have an answer for it.
Peter I sent you a PM

Nope -- you aren't on ignore...

I think YOU have to adjust YOUR settings so you will allow people to send you PMs; I get this message below when trying to PM you:

rubystone1111 has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her.

If you are trying to send this message to multiple recipients, remove rubystone1111 from the recipient list and send the message again.

When i play a movie with Dolby 5.1EX or DTS-ES 6.1 my Sony amp display the correct logo's when i use the A.F.D sound field on Auto.

When i use the Movie sound fields the display shows Dolby Digital EX 3/2.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 3/3/.1, but the logo's don't show as above.

And to talk about Star Wars, why does the THX logo play in EX, but as soon as the movie starts it plays in normal 5.1?

I guess so.. After 80, my 606 shows "Maximum Volume", so I assume that is as high as it will go.. That is plenty loud for me anyway. My Velodynes are 150 watts peak, but will still cut off (built in cut off on the Velodynes) sometime on hard music like Metallica when I go above 75 or so. I may need to play with my crossover settings a bit more. But absolutely no distortion at all when cranked way up is great. Sounds fantastic..

I have an 5 year old Sony receiver that was rated at 100 watts per channel. The Onkyo at 90 wpc is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy more powerful.


And as far as you question goes below, I have my Panny BD player connected via bitsteam, so I don't see it. I do have my A2 connected PCM, but don't see that issue with that at all.
