Bitstream works fine but you are unable to use DTS's Neural X upmixer on a Dolby signal and vice versa.

When you send Multi Channel PCM from a bluray player both upmixers will work.

It is an issue with the code that DTS implemented in the Denon & Marantz 7200 & 8802 in the past 2 weeks. It remains to be seen whether or not D & M will correct the issue or whether it is a chipset limitation.

Time will tell whether or not other manufacturers will have the same issue with their chipsets until DTS X is available to update their AVRs.

The issue is referred to as "Cross Pollination" on AVS

Being able to send Multi Channel PCM makes it easier to compare movies from a NAS instead of loading each movie in to the bluray player.

Hmmm, looks like you have everything set up correctly. The 7200 will not allow you to use a bitstream signal and use the DSU mode. It must be decoded first. HOWEVER, I see that you have the Dune doing that, so I have no idea why it is only showing as stereo when received by the 7200...
Let us know if you figure it out. This is one of the reason why I went with the 5200 as I LOVE the DSU mode and can't imagine it being much better with the new DTS firmware...

I think there was an issue with PCM output in a few of the firmware releases, which restricted them to 2-ch output.

What do you guys use for your jukeboxes? I'm currenly running yaDIS but would like to experiment with others. I am trying Zappitti (again). I thought someon (Blackssr?) mentioned that they dropped support or something was broken.

I was happy with it too until just recently. Since upgrading to version 5.2 (all versions of it) when I add a Movie it doesn't get added to my Dune index unless I do a full update of the metadata for the Dune index which takes hours! Previously it was automatically updated when I added a movie.

As well, all TV shows I've added since moving to 5.2 cannot be launched using the iPad app.

Those caveats aside it works quite well and hopefully these issues get sorted out - I was a pretty happy camper for the previous 4 years.

Didn't know they hosed it. I'm still running an old version with the database on a WHS (v1). I thought about upgrading, sounds like I better sit tight. If it's not broke...
