I recently purchased a PS3 and I have been struggling to get the audio to output correctly on the RX-V861. We have the PS3 set to put out Linear PCM 5.1 (our setup) up to 192kHz (which the V861 is supposed to be able to handle). The V861 *seems* to be handling the MPCM just fine, except for the fact that it kicks out center channel audio through the left speaker at times (like when you hear the *clicks* of going through onscreen menu choices). It also does this in instances of any in-game audio that is not 5.1.
I clearly have something set wrong, but for the life of me I can't figure out what, nor have I been able to find one online. We've had this receiver for a while now, and have not had this or any other issue with any of our other setups.
And yes, I have the unit set to Linear PCM output and not Bitstream.
