    I wonder if anyone can tell me if i can get any hd audio out of the 5.1 analogue jacks. I have a cyrus av8 with a 5.1 analogue input and it would be great if i could get true hd from the pioneer through my system. I am currently using the coax digital out. If not will there be a firmware update on the pioneer that would except hd audio out of the 5.1 analogue jacks.My current firmware is 3.38 which was released 29/1/09. Many thanks.:thumbsup:

    According to the research conducted and posted by Ian_S this player is not enabled for HD audio through analogues - see the sticky at the top of the forum

    Given that Pioneer is rolling out its third generation players now I would speculate it is very unlikely that this will ever be addressed or even can be adressed.

    Hi mgiazzi. :)
    Yeah :( as Scatter says,no TrueHD/DTS-MA over the analogues i'm afraid.Zero chance of firmware enabling this as well i guess.....sorry mate.
    All the best.
