So I've worked out, if I connect the blu ray straight to Tv 3d works fine, so how do I get master audio? Connecting the blu ray to the av amp via coaxial I only get Dts not master audio... Any ideas guys thanks...

The 863 is cannot pass 3D through the HDMI. You need a player with two HDMI outputs , one for sound to the amp and one to the TV/projector

Hi cliff,
So how does it do sky 3d? Does that work in a different way? Thanks

Well the amplifier was designed before Blu ray 3D so the HDMI spec was not designed with this in mind. Having said that the Sky TV data rate is lower (1080i) and probably passes through OK.
My guess is that is the reason Sky goes through.

No it won't work.
If you get a player with two HDMI outs, in the menu you tell it to send HD sound one and video on the other.

I have it working in a fashion, by running blu ray to Tv via hdmi, then a coaxial from blu ray to amp... I just don't get master audio only Dts.. Wondering if there's another way..

Tenuous, I know, but are both your HDMI cables 3D compatible?

That's OK. Because the bandwidth of coax digital output is limited it can only carry the compressed formats like Dolby Digital. The higher quality lossless formats have to use HDMI.

Cool... I use coaxial myself and still enjoy the sound.
