Pioneer BDP-LX70 HD sound output


Active Member
According to the Superfi advert, the LX70 can output Dolby HD, DTS HD etc through HDMI but only when output as PCM

So, is this why PCM is displayed on my LX81 amp and not the full 'Dolby True HD', 'DTS HD' is not played? Is there a way around this? Or do I need a newer Blu-ray player? Thanks

From what I can remember the 70 does not support any of the HD sound codecs, Pioneer updated to 70 to the 70a which does bitstream the HD sound.
