Since the last firmware on the ps4 I've noticed on a few blu ray titles that have DD-TRUE HD will only be in DD 5.1. My receiver can certainly decode it and never had a problem with bitstream on the...

There is no menu on those particular titles. It's like the PS4 isn't recognizing the DDTrue HD track, only the DD5.1. It was the same with PCM as it was with Bitstream.

Try using "Straight" for everything. Those DSP settings may sound nice at first but always seem to lack "punch", imo. This might be why you're having so much disparity on your center. Just my...

RGB can be on Full or Limited as long as you use the same setting on your TV. Your TV is most likely on Limited so just use Limited on the PS4.
