Question Problem with multichannel output Onkyo 22HDX


Well-known Member
HI looking for some help please. My home cinema setup is as follows:

Sky HD - HDMI out to HDMI input 1
NOW TV - HDMI out to HDMI input 2
PS4 - HDMI out to HDMI input 3
Onkyo Receiver - HDMI out to HDMI (arc) input TV

My problem is that the sources are all set to output Dolby etc and the receiver is showing that it is receiving DD but the only listening mode options I have are Stereo, Mono, Direct and Theatre. No multichannel, Dolby pro-logic, etc. I don't know what I've changed because it used to be fine. As far as I can see all of the set up options on the receiver are correct. I've tried a factory reset, unplugging cables, powering off. Any ideas folks?

If receiving discrete multichannel formats such as Dolby Digital 5.1 then modes such as Pro Logic wouldn't be applicable. Prologic II is only applicable to audio with fewer than the channels you'd ordinarilly get included with a discrete 5.1 format.

Are you playing 5.1 Dolby Digital and have you tried it with a 2 channel stereo source?

Hi thanks for your reply. Yeah I've tried 2 channel stereo sources too. And 5.1 sources are only being output as stereo
