I don't follow why the BD player should be an issue.
Hi JRock3x8, suggest to re-check your BD player audio setting menu ... BD Audio MiX Setting should be Off.

I'm not sure how I would see that. I have my BR player input set to DTS Neo : 6

1. I just meant "is your DTS working better now". It should say it on the Onkyo.

2. That is fine. Just remember that other than that one BD-AudioMix setting in the BD-Player/HTiB itself, you change all Listening Modes at the Onkyo. Also, only the Onkyo's display is accurate.

You can use Neo:6 if you want, but that is just a fake-surround mode ... usually for 2/3-channel stereo/pro-logic (to matrix them-out to more speakers).

so what should my listening mode be set to?

I thought the reason you used those modes (ie NEO 6) is because they have the audyssey EQ whereas a straight pass through would not?

I don't mind chatting with you about this, but I get the feeling you are not reading and/or understanding the Onkyo manual (hard-copy or PDF). It's hard to convey all required info in a forum thread.

My understanding of Onkyo Listening Modes is ...
-When the Onkyo sees a certain sound format (from whatever source material) it does this certain thing with the sound before it is outputted to the speakers. There is a nice chart in the manual.

Especially for Blu-Ray discs (in a real BD-Player) I like to set them similar to this:
When the Onkyo sees this - It does this
Dolby Digital - Exact Dolby Digital to 5.1 speakers
DTS - - Exact DTS to 5.1 speakers
Dolby True-HD - Exact Dolby-HD to 7.1 speakers
DTS-HD - Exact DTS-HD to 7.1 speakers
2ch Stereo - NEO:6 to 5.1 speakers
3ch ProLogic - PLIIx-Movie to 5.1 speakers

... like that. Most of those use the sound directly from the DVD/BD, while the bottom ones digitally re-process the sound.

Actually, that's pretty much how I have all mine set for all Input devices.

I think the only Listening Mode that disables Audyssey is Direct. If you have properly run Audyssey Calibration (and like the more balanced and speaker equalized sound) ... you really don't want to be disabling Audyssey.

Edit for completeness:
I should also add that while these Listening Modes can be changed on-the-fly with the remote's buttons, I would rather they default properly automatically. This way, I don't have to mess with them or, if someone else is using the system (ie. Wife) they are set optimally automatically by default.

Living Room Home-Theater:
Epson 8350 Projector (1080p @ 96") / Panasonic 850u 46" 1080p Plasma TV
Onkyo TX-sr607 AVR (7.2ch ~ HDMI ~ wrat-Amp 630 watts )
AppleTV-4 / Panasonic dmp-BD60 Blu-Ray Disc Player / Cisco 8742hdc DVR (TWC)
Harmony 670 Remote / HTPC (Kodi/Win10-64) Media Server PC / Synology 12tb Raid-5 NAS

Use the Display Info button to reveal the incoming Audio as the AVR sees it.

Go into Listening mode and set:
Dolby D/Dolby D Plus/TrueHD to "Straight Decode"

DTS/DTS-ES/DTS-HD to "Straight Decode"

Other Multich Source to "Straight Decode"
