So I'm noticing a little bug in either my HTPC or the X2000. I have my HTPC connected via HDMI audio set to PCM, and the PC is set to 7.1. Unfortunately with 5.1 sources the PC or receiver send the rear audio to the surround backs not the rear L/R's as it should. Is there a setting where the X2000 can automatically take 5.1 sources and use Dolby PL for the rear channels to fill out all 7 channels?

Huh? Surround Backs = Rear surrounds

DD PLIIx will simulate 7.1 audio from a 2.1/5.1 audio track.

If anyone needs codes, I'd be glad to post them. Not sure if all pronto hex is already somewhere on your site or not. But it's easy enough to pull is from the master list I linked a few posts back.

Hello all,

I'm new to this forum and I had a question that's been bugging me for a while now that I hope you guys can help me with.

I'm about to buy a PS4 in the next month coupled with a new 50 inch Sony TV (the Sony 50W805 to be exact) and I want to go all out and get proper surround sound as well so I'm
thinking of getting a Denon AVR X-1000 coupled with a Boston Acoustics XS 5.1 Soundware speakerset (I heard these are supposed to be really nice speakers for the price).
This is my first time I'm getting into ''hifi-audio'' if you want to call it that and I have no experience whatsoever with receivers and the like.

Now my question is basically, for those who have a PS4 and the X-1000, does true 5.1 surround work for you guys? It's been bugging me lately because I'm reading a lot of reports on the web about people not getting proper surround sound on their PS4's and other audio problems. I assume the best way to hook it up to my PS4 and TV would be to use only HDMI cables? I read the best way
to connect it would be connecting the PS4 with an HDMI cable to the receiver, and then an HDMI cable from the TV to the HDMI OUT port from the receiver. Is this correct? And what would be the best settings to use on the PS4?
I have a pretty small room so it might be overkill getting a 5.1 set but there are some amazing games coming out next year and I want to step up my gaming experiences by a big notch.

I'd really appreciate to get a firm combination whether this works 100% correctly or not so I can just buy everything I need next month without worries of it not working correctly because it's going to be a huge purchase I'm making but I want to be truly sure that I won't run into problems with this set.

Thanks very much in advance!

I'm hoping someone here can help with with an issue I'm experiencing.

I have a Denon X4000 receiver and I am not getting a video signal.
Purchased this receiver recently new from an authorized dealer. Couple days ago I set it up by connecting my speakers, PS4, and running the audyssey calibration. Everything worked fine. I was out a couple of days and today when I turned everything on, I only receive an audio signal, but not video signal. I know the hdmi connection between the receiver and tv is working since I can see the osd when switching to other inputs.

Does anyone know what could be happening? Is the unit damaged?

Thanks.

Should the unit do this automagically? I noticed the other night that a Dolby Digital 5.1 input did not use PLIIx for the rears. I recall from my 2311CI (what I upgraded from), I had to specifically tell the unit how to decode for the rear surrounds. I cannot find where to do this on the X4000.
