Hi all, My receiver SONY STR DB925 has serviced me for 15 years. Its done well. I have a new problem so I may have to upgrade but you guys here may know a workaround. Obviously this receiver cannot do Dolby True HD or DTS equivalent as it uses Optical SPDIF ports so the bitrate cannot handle it. But its always been able to play the tracks but in the 5.1 equivalent version. So my issue. I just bought a philips 58pfl9956 tv. It has SPDIF out for audio it does not do Phono Left and Right out. So I used to have my Nintendo Wii plugged in to the TV and use audio outs on my TV to some generic left and right input on the Audio Reciever. I had my bluray plugged directly into the SPDIF socket on the receiver. My Audio Receiver has a spare SPDIF port which I used for my TVIX player. So basically no sound ever went into my TV straight into the amp. ALL GOOD The new TV forced me to change to the following: TVIX still using the SPDIF port ON THE Audio Receiver directly (not using SPDIF OUT on the TV) Bluray uses HDMI cable to the TV. Nintendo Wii uses Component (5 phono plugs) on the TV (Audio receiver has no component remember its very old). SPDIF out uses optical cable to the Audio Reciever. So in the above configuration it means that all sound on my TV uses the Audio Out SPDIF to get sound to the Audio Receiver. It works perfectly. Except on DTS HD 7.1 sound it will only output the Bluray sound as stereo. The dolby digital equivalent WORKS FINE! All the settings on the bluray player are set to BITSTREAM. So it should be fine. Is there some weird handshake or copyright thing going on with the hdmi nto passing the signal to SPDIF out? Does this make sense? I can upgrade but having just shelled out a lot on the TV I could do with waiting... Any solutions? Thanks.
