I recently purchased a new Sony BDP-S590 blue ray player. it is connected to the Denon 1610 via hdmi cable. whenever I play a movie now, the display on the 1610 says " multi-in" . on my old Magnavox blue ray player the display would say Dolby, dbx, etc. It seems to sound fine but I'm wondering if I am getting the best sound available. I have read through "bat-pigs" revised manual (thank you so much for doing this translation), but didn't find this issue discussed. thanks

Actually, this set up appears correct. The "Multi In" display on the Denon means it is receiving a "Multi Channel Source", which appears to mean that you have your Denon set to "Auto" for signal detection. This also seems to point to your BDP-S590 set to "Auto HDMI" as well.

Though, once the Bu Ray (or DVD) starts playing, the AVR should display the audio format (i.e. DTS, DD 5.1, etc.). It does sound like you have your system set up properly.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that I bought all this "stuff" to enjoy it!

I suspect you have the Sony player set to "BD Audio Mix = On". That tells the player to add in Secondary Audio (menu clicks and sound for PIP commentaries) and the player has to do the decoding itself in order to mix in the extra audio. If you want to see TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio on your Denon display, set Mix to Off. But, you get the same quality audio either way. It doesn't matter whether the player or the receiver does the decoding of lossless audio tracks.
