Now, Straight Decode is the option to select if you want to output what the source is outputting. In this case it would be TrueHD or DTS-MA. That is what I have selected and that is what is output and displayed on the front.
You can not select those modes on any pre-amp or receiver from any manufacturer, unless they are encoded on the disc you are playing, if the disc is encoded with D TRUE HD, DTS MASTER AUDIO, DTS OR D.DIGITAL, then you can choose to superimpose any other processing mode over those FOUR. D TRUE HD, D.D, DTS MA and DTS, are only available if they are encoded on the disc, they are not pre-set DSP modes like D PRO LOGIC II or TV LOGIC.
THEY HAVE TO BE ENCODED ONTO THE DISC YOU ARE PLAYING.
THE PRE-AMP IN THE RECEIVER HAS
BUILT IN D. TRUE HD, DTS MASTER AUDIO, DTS and D.DIGITAL DECODERS, THOSE FOUR SOUND MODES, ARE NOT DSP PRE-SETS THEY ARE SOUND TRACK ENCODINGS.
YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE BIT STREAM OUTPUT (PCM MODE) FROM YOUR BLU-RAY PLAYER, SELECT FROM YOUR PLAYERS MENU, IT WILL SHOW UP AS MULTI- CHANNEL,. (PCM) or STRAIGHT DECODE, (PCM) ON THE 609's FRONT PANEL DISPLAY and THE SAME, ON SCREEN!
PCM, IS BIT STREAM FROM YOUR PLAYER, and INDICATED AS STRAIGHT DECODE,(PCM) or (MULTI CHANNEL, (PCM) ONSCREEN and ON THE FRONT PANEL of YOUR TX-NR609.
You can choose to let the player (PCM MODE)--(BITSTREAM) or the receiver decode the multi- channel audio encoded on the disc.
YOU MUST GO INTO YOUR PLAYERS SETTINGS MENU and SET HDMI OUT (AUTO) to HDMI (PCM) instead of AUTO.
also, if you are using OPTICAL or COAXIAL DIGITAL CONNECTIONS,
change the settings for DOLBY DIGITAL OR DTS to PCM in the menu on your player, in PCM MODE THE PLAYER DOES THE DECODING and VISA VERSA.
DID I MAKE THAT CLEAR ENOUGH
I AM NOT TRYING TO BE RUDE, JUST TRYING, TO CLARIFY.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?
