Not sure where to post this question, since everything is hooked up to the AVR's, I'll start here...

I have two systems setup, when watching the same episode of the same show on Netflix I get different sound decoding between the two systems...

System #1 (Bedroom)
Sony BDP-S790 connected with an HDMI cable to a Denon AVR-3313ci

System #2 (Living room)
Oppo BDP-103 connected with an HDMI cable to a Yamaha RXA-2020

When using system #1 the AVR shows input as Multi Channel In. Everything works and sounds great.

When using system #2 the AVR shows Dolby Pro Logic, Adaptive DRC. The Subs don't work, sounds like crap.

Both BDP's have the output set to Bitstream so I don't think the issue is there. I would like to get the subs in system #2 to fire, any ideas?

In addition to setting the BDP to "bitstream" you must also ensure the Secondary Audio or Mix setting is disabled as well. In system #1, a front panel display of "Multi CH IN" indicates the Sony is decoding the audio and passing it as PCM rather than bitstreaming it and in system #2 the Oppo is only passing a Stereo signal. In both instances you need to reset each BDP while connected to the AVRs and then set them to Bitstream/Secondary Audio/Mix (off) as you likely simply moved them from being connected directly to the TV to the AVR.

Interesting, I'll have to check the second audio and mix settings. I will do the reset on each of the BDP's, but neither has ever been plugged directly into a TV...
