If I set it to PMC Multi-Ch no problems at all....good sound. I have a 5.1 setup
Last night after I posted I played around a little more, and found out that for some HD DVD's the default audio setting is DD+ and you have to go into the features and manually select Dolby TrueHD, once I did that
my reciever lit up with TrueHD
Just re-reading some posts I am concluding that HD DVD's that only have DD+
are the ones that cannot be bitstreamed "by some Recievers"
My question is........assuming you have a HD DVD with both DD+ and Dolby TrueHD. When you first load the disk is there any way to default the disk to select Dolby TrueHD instead of DD+ this way you avoid the "lawnmower" noise right from the start
The other option .......
is to first select PMC multichannel in the Player's setup, load the disk (this avoids the "lawnmower" noise, and when the movie starts switch the audio selection to Dolby TrueHD by using the audio button on the remote,then going back to the setup and switching PMC multi to Pass thru.
I guess the question is....... when the movie is playing or is in pause mode is it possible to get to the setup menu make the switch from PMC multi to direct pass thru and restart the movie ?????? without having to restart the disk ?
I know....... this may seem like a lot of work to get bitstream but it would just make me feel better to know there is a workaround.......and that I am getting full use from my expensive A/V reciever
Also I will be buying a lot of HD DVD's in the comming weeks
Any opinions.....ideas or thoughts are very welcome
