No clue. My age old Panny surround didnt like any variation I threw at it but it works fine on PS4 games? Thought it was odd but just an experiment anyway so nothing lost. Just glad I moved my setup out of our oddly shaped living room and into the spare room. Now I just need a theater placard on the door!

Strange, really unless you changed something away from default at some point (quite possible) in the "video playback" options it should default as the movie'a capability.

Only settings I changed was once it didn't work. Well actually there is a difference...I'm using optic out on the PS4 where its HDMI out on the PS3 so maybe its something in that. Just bought an optic cable last week so its a new addition. Meh it works great on the gaming side.

High-end Bluray audio codecs like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD require HDMI. Optical won't process them.

I was having a similar issue of getting stereo over HDMI even on the last of us the only option was 2.0. Rebooted ps4 and then got pcm on my display and the options back in the last of us.

Turned on ps4 later and back to stereo. Here is my theory though. Because I turned on the ps4 and then the receiver and switched over to the right input (defaults to chrome cast for the wife once the receiver is turned off) it only sea aircraft that would accept stereo. But when I rebooted the ps4 again, the receiver was seen as an available 7.1 option and there for gave me all channels.

So try turning on the ps4 as the last thing. Also check your settings both under menu and under settings when you have a bluray playing.

Hope that helps

It's not the console, that is a classic case of an AVR with mediocre firmware on the HDMI board inside the AVR. But I understand you thinking it would be the console.
There is a fair bit of handshake talking on both sides, the AVR is borking on the "what I can receive" part so the PS4 delivers the lowest common denominator.

There is supposed to be a decent update soon. Don't ask me details, since I already forgot what I read.

Yeah I have the odd issue at times where if the TV with ARC is powered on before my AVR locks in the PS4 signal it will stutter back and forth between the 2 audio feeds. Easy enough to fix, turn tv off and then back on, but it does highlight that with all the various codec's and features being poured into modern receivers it does leave several tripping points for unforeseen conflicts to arise.

TBH I haven't seen anything but in reviewing the original email about the settlement it states you must fill out a claims form to receive benefits.

See -> www.psnsoesettlement.com
Thanks, but this is nothing to do with the settlement. This was a promotion last month were if you spend $100 in the PSN store, they credit you $15 back "on or before March 2nd." It's now the 3rd and no credit or email.

If I recall correctly, when Sony did it in Nov 2013 the promo code was in an email one had to use before x-date.

Not yet. I went to the playstation support chat online today and asked about it. They said sure enough I qualify for it. Duh. Explained I have not received it yet and they apologized. Rep. apparently escalated it and I should receive it with in 3-5 business days. That is what I was told by the support rep. So, you might want to contact chat support. Last time I had no problem getting it. Not sure why its a problem this time around.

PS4 Sales Reach 20.2 Million Units

Sony announces new PlayStation 4 sales milestone.



Sony on Wednesday announced a new sales milestone for the PlayStation 4. As of March 1, Sony had sold through (i.e. not just shipped) more than 20.2 million consoles. The PS4 continues to show the "fastest and strongest" growth in the history of all PlayStation hardware, Sony said.
This is up from 18.5 million PS4s sold at the beginning of January 2015.
"We are so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation fans worldwide, and we are truly humbled that gamers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play," PlayStation executive Andrew House said in a statement. "We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver unique and interactive entertainment experiences powered by the network and the PS4 system's deep social capabilities."
By comparison, Microsoft's Xbox One had shipped 10 million units by the end of 2014. The company has not announced a new sales milestone so far this year.

Really liking the changes to War Thunder...well most of them.
The bass is more appropriate, it's loading quicker, the dynamic range is more appropriate, yadda yadda...

Anyone know how to control which air support location choice you get? Sometimes I get a map (my preference), sometimes I get the circle on the ground to move around. No rhyme or reason that I can tell.
Worse yet it seems to freeze so you can't back out of it.

I never really got into the game but I should try it again now that it has been out quite a while and has had some updates.

By comparison, Microsoft's Xbox One had shipped 10 million units by the end of 2014. The company has not announced a new sales milestone so far this year.

In other news, 20 million PS4 owners are pissed off at Sony because the PS4 still doesn't do half the things their PS3's did almost 1.5 years after its launch. There's just too many to list but things like no DLNA, no sensible remote control, piss poor battery life in its controller which is a ergonomic nightmare on top of it falling apart prematurely - oh and hardly any games for it. Speaking of games, the thing is just barely powerful enough to do 1080p. Plain old 1080P for @#$@ sake. Nobody expected 4k this gen but 1080p was a min. requirement.


I honestly do not know why this system has sold so many. I'm glad it is selling because I want to see Sony stick around as I've always loved the PS franchise but there is no denying that this system has not lived up to the expectations of many.


....not that things are any better on the other side of the fence because I've been on both sides since launch. I'd honestly like to see both consoles scrapped and re-released.
