Do you have another separate multichannel rig, or a separate multichannel splitter to switch between your two sources?
P.S. The OP has been more than well served; he is now getting the 5.1 downmix from Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA through his digital optical connection between his Yamaha receiver and Sony BD player.
It is not the full Lossless audio codec, but still a very good lossy one nonetheless, and he's very happy now, much more than when he started this thread and not able to benefit of anything truly satisfyingly sounding.
All it took is to change a setting in the audio menu of his BD player; done!
At this point we only go beyond our duty in assisting the OP. ...I feel that he's enjoying watching his BD movies now more than contemplating spending money for a new receiver; HDMI and Dolby Atmos or not.
So, BIstander, you don't have to really answer my question just above (I'm still curious though
And there are other threads of great interest...where the OP can learn all about HDMI and Dolby Atmos.
