I have the RX-V867. Standby/Passthru mode has been enabled. My PlayStation 3 is connected to the HDMI(3) input of the RX-V867 and the HDMI output goes to my TV.
I have been interested in setting up a media server and have been testing the playability of my movies from the PS3 and my TV. While playing via the PS3 with the receiver in passthru/standby mode, if the movie is encoded with a 5.1 audio track, the only audio I hear coming from the TV is the sound effects. No dialogue. All is fine after powering on the receiver, but this cuts the sound from the TV. If I stream directly to my TV, this works fine. If I bypass the RX-V867 and hook the PS3 directly to the TV, that works fine too.
Any suggestions on what settings need to be changed to make the receiver feed 2ch stereo to my TV in passthru mode?
Also, I'd be curious to know if it is possible to allow the TV speakers to be used while the receiver is on.
