Sorry if I couldn't find this in my thread searches, but I've got myself all tied up in string here on exactly what settings the PS3 and the Yamaha RXV 661 should be set to for enabling me to get the lossless PCM audio stream (not 2 channel, but the full PCM that is encoded on many blue-ray movies).
Just got the 661 and love it so far. My current set up on it is PS3 HDMI to HDMI 1 In on receiver. HDMI out from receiver to my Panasonic HDTV (via a dvi adapter, as that is the connection on tv). I have the HDMI settings on Yamaha set to "Other", as the manual states.
The settings on the PS3 for the blue ray player audio are linear out (not bitstream, though I have used that successfully). On the Sound Settings in PS3, I tried to choose HDMI, Automatic, but got the message that the device is not capable of handling HDMI. I'm wondering how that can be, as the PS3 is passing their hdmi signal directly to the Yamaha? When I switch the audio source to HDMI on Yamaha, no sound!
What I'm left with is great Dolby Digital audio via an optical connections, but what I'm really aiming for is the uncompressed PCM. Whatever setting I use in this regard, either on the 661, or PS3, get me sound only out of the front and center speakers.
Bottom line: what settings on Yamaha will allow me to get uncompressed PCM audio from the PS3, and vice-versa, what are the PS3 settings for this.
Thanks for any assistance!
