Onkyo 805 - SBR / SBL not showing as used?


Well-known Member

Whilst having a good old play with my new 805 and DTS-HD MA (now there is a story!) - I noticed in my 7.1 setup the SBR and SBL are never shown as used on the front of the AMP (no matter what the listening mode). Both produce noise and both show in the speaker setup - why is this??

What source are you using?
If it is an HDMI source transmitting in PCM, it may be that the 805, like many receivers does not do 7.1 processing to 5.1 PCM signals.

If so, try a standard DD 5.1 bitstream source, to see if you can get it to work there.

ahhh.. ok I'll give that a try, I must admit I was playing around with the PS3 attached to the onkyo at the time.
