I have a SR4001, and I'm trying to feed a 5.1 PCM signal from a Sharp Blu-ray player over HDMI. I can get sound from every format available (DD, dts, dts-HD core, TrueHD from my HD DVD player), but when I try to play an uncompressed 5.1 PCM soundtrack from a Blu-ray, I get sound only in the L/R mains and the sub. It's not the entire soundtrack in stereo, either; it's just the L/R channels (music, atmospheric sounds, etc.). All the speaker lights light up on the front panel display, but I only get the 2.1 sound.
I have tried switching out my HDMI cable, I fooled around with all the settings (BD and rec.) I could think of, and nothing worked. I also played my HD DVD player through both HDMI inputs, and it played fine. I had a Blu-ray player in this input before, and I never had a problem.
I returned the BD player and am waiting for a replacement, but the only suggestions I've gotten so far is that it's probably a receiver setting that is causing this. If that is so, does anyone have any suggestions as to what the culprit might be? I'll have to wait until I get my replacement unit, but hopefully I can get a head start here. Thanks.
