First of all, I just bought the DBP-4010UDCI, I've had it 3 days now, and I hooked it up via HDMI only last night to try out with SkyFall. First impressions are it looks fantastic, much better upscaling on Beverly Hills Cop DVD than my DVD-3930CI or my BT2500... Speaking of, when I played BHC on my DVD 3930, it wouldnt play in 5.1, only 2.0. In 5.1 you could hear music but no voices, which was wierd I thought, but maybe just a software bug... It did that with ALL DVDs... I had to play them in 2.0 and have the pre-amp run in Dolby PL or DTS Neo...
Last night on the 4010, BHC played on it's own perfectly and sounding amazing in DD 5.1, which the 3930 never did... So first off, score for the better PG and the SQ working!!!
On to the problem Im having. Tried Skyfall, and it WILL NOT play in DTS MA, it only outputs a 2 channel downmix that again my amp wants to play in DPL or DTS Neo6. I spent about 3 hours changing every setting on the amp, but it always says D.Mix on the unit on the bottom right corner with the DTS HD logo lit up above it.
I have no idea why it is doing this, so I tried Spiderman 3 which was an old disc and a fast grab. Same thing, downmix 2.0... In my BT2500 they both play in DTS MA HD like they should. I have the 4010 set to HD audio in the pop up menu as suggested, it didnt change anything. I also set the BD audio to LPCM stream, and Auto, and 2 channel, and all the same result...
How I have it hooked up is HDMI out, into a DVDO Edge Green, then HDMI video leaved the Edge into my Toshiba and optical 5.1 back to my Krell HTS 7.1 Pre Pro. I KNOW that a toslink wont carry the BD audio codecs, but it should at least play in regular DTS or DD 5.1 as my 2500 BTCI does... They are both hooked up the same, HDMI out into the Edge etc... They even have the same HDMI cables which are Audioquest HDMI 3s, which are a few years old but both work. The signal obviosuly works on DVDs, just unsure why it's having problems with sending proper channels out through the BD movies. Going to try a few more movies today, but 0 for 2 seems like something is confused in the setup.
Hopeful someone will come to my aid and tell me something I am missing. The good thing is I havent had any problems with it not reading any discs... It sounded phenominal in SACD downscale mode through the HDMI last night, played 4-5 discs, Celion Dion's Decade, Peter Gabriel's So, Toto's IV, J-Lo's original album On 6th something aruther... lol All sounded incredible to the point I didnt know it wasnt true SACD sound until I did my 3-4 hours of reading all I could in the setup!
Should I just not give anymore trouble to this and just "mute" the hdmi and hook up my 7.1 analog outputs? This is the reason I bought the player to begin with, just dont want to let this go if it is something wrong and be stuck with it being busted in the future if I move it into the bedroom or something. From all what I read it looks like this might be one of their last great players (at least for a while). Maybe they are tooling up for a Reference 4k upscaler... :-) One can only hope I guess, right?
Thanks again for any help.
