I'm just making the transition from my 32" JVC CRT and Yamaha RX-490 Dolby surround into the High Def era.
Display: Samsung PN50B560
Blu-ray: Samsung BD-C6500
Sound: Definitive Technologies Procinema 800 (6.1)
Receiver: Yamaha RX-V861 (potentially)
Forgive my noobness.
I want the best sound, and I know that the RX-v861 DOES NOT decode DTS MA or Dolby TrueHD.
How do I get these new surround modes to play?
I thought I read in another post about being able to still use an HDMI cable from the C6500 to the V861, letting the C6500 do the decoding?
Or do I have to use the analog outs from the C6500? If so, the V861 seems to only have 6 inputs for external sources?
Or am I better off selling the V861 and getting something else?
Sorry if I am asking dumb questions, this is my first foray with surround sound in 15 years.
Thanks for your time and attention.
