I'm new here and desperately need help! I'm from South-Africa (a Blu-rayregion B country) and I've bought the PS3 250GB Amazon Exclusive FamilyEntertainment Bundle with the goal of connecting it to my LG 9.1 BH9520TW hometheatre system (it's a region B 3D Blu-ray A/V receiver/player).
I did this so that I can play Region B locked Blu-rays on my LG player andRegion A locked Blu-rays on my PS3 with DTS-HD MA and Dolby Digital TrueHDregardless of which player I need to use.
The problem is that I can't get my LG receiver to play the HD audio whenplaying Blu-rays through the PS3.
I'm using a HDMI 1.4 cable to connect the PS3 with the LG receiver and haveset the PS3 BD/DVD HDMI audio setting to bitstream, but whenever I switch theaudio of my 300 blu-ray from standard dolby digital to Dolby Digital TrueHD, Iget no audio output. The video plays fine in full HD and I get standard DolbyDigital and DTS, but no HD DD or HD DTS.
What am I missing? Where is this setup going wrong? I noticed on the amazondescription page that they claim the PS3 in question is only compatible withSony amps??? Can this be true?
I get audio through Linear PCM, but this is not HD obviously. I did noticethat when I selected bitstream on the PS3 it said something like "someaudio from BD's might not play with this option selected".
My PS3 and LG system have their latest firmware installed and the LG playerplays all HD audio perfectly when playing a disc directly from the LG player.PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE help me out! Words cannot describe how grateful I wouldbe if I can get this riddle solved!!!
