Are there any MVP881BR owner's here?
Our MVP881 does not output DTS HDMA 5.1 audio.
I connect MVP881 to Audio/Video Control Center McIntosh MX150 via HDMI-cable. When I set in BR-disk menu "Dolby Surround 5.1 mode", then MX150 shows me 5.1 "IN", and also 5.1 "OUT" audio signal. (On the front panel of MX150 are shone 6 lights on the left -IN signal, and 6 lights on the right - OUT signal). This mode works fine.
But when I set "DTS HDMA 5.1 audio" mode in BR-disk menu, the MX150 diagnoses only "stereo" audio input signal (on the front panel of MX150, on the left, light up only 2 indicators), and the indicator "HD AUDIO" in the middle of the front panel of MX150 is not shone. And I hear the stereo sound from the loudspeakers.
At the same time, if I plug another BR player to the MX150, also via HDMI cable (it is OPPO BR player), the DTS HDMA 5.1 audio is reproduced perfectly -I hear an excellent 5.1 sound! And I also see 6 "IN" indicators and 6 "OUT" indicators, and "HD AUDIO" indicator on the front panel MX150 shone.
In MVP881 (and also MX150) SETUP all options are set as "Manufacturer's Settings".
I am sure that this situation is not related to failures in the MVP881 - it is not broken!
I have a question to those who know: what should I do in the settings MVP881, or in settings MX150 to fix this problem?
(Local Mackintosh Dealer didn't refuse to solve this problem, but they have told to us that we should leave our MVP881 at them for 2 weeks! It's not an option!)
The upgrade of this equipment (MVP881 and MX150) was not made. Local McIntosh Dealer assert that for the last years was not issued any updatings neither for video - nor for audio - equipment. It seems strange to us! In this time, most likely, there were many new codecs for BR players. We increasingly often began to meet BR disks which our MVP881 can not reproduce. Usually, in such cases, we see the message "No Disc". Other, disks are reproduced perfectly.
Is there upgrades for MVP881 and MX150 were issued (production date of both these devices - May 2010)? How can we upgrade our MVP881 and MX150?
Actually in the MVP881 menu there is a "Upgrade" item. We understant that the player MVP881 can itself do an upgrade via the Internet. But we strongly recommend not to do this because it is very unsafe: together with updatings many viruses can get to a player. And it have no any Antivirus!
Is it really so?
How can we upgrade the MVP881? And how we can upgrade MX150?
