From Onkyo the 6xx line and up will accept HDMI audio.

Onkyo HT-S894

5.1 setup. Not sure if it's discontinued or not.

I don't think the ps3 outputs hd bitstream at all, so this is the only way to go.

Btw, I heard ps3 just got a firmware update to decode dts-hd ma.
post #35 of 212
The PS3 cannot do bitstream hd at all, it's a hardware thing so it will never be possible on current PS3s.

Also as for the "handshaking" issues with the Samsung AS720 and the PS3, if you look in the "main" AS720 thread people have had no problems (with any products) when the last thing you turn on is the reciever itself. These PS3 handshaking issues seem to be a USER problem instead of a HARDWARE problem =)

*Also i have a PS3, Comcast HD Box and a Samsung AS720 that i am going to connect together when my new house is built (by august) so i can better answer questions and test out the reciever and any issues that i run across. (i haven't even opened the AS720 box yet)

Most of these HTIB I cannot find online.

So far, what has been found to be the best value/performance on the list?
post #37 of 212
There are a tonne of new Yamaha AVRs that accept LCPM, starting with the RXV463 (or the equivalent HTR 6140).

Anything moving up from that should also go on your list.

Some of their older models are also LCPM friendly, including the HTR 6060 (you can put that on your list too). Visit the Yamaha website and you can jot down at least another 3-5 models.

And as another post mentioned, this list is indeed going to get very long with more and more manufacturers including this spec in their AVRs.

Sonystyle advertises the ht-ss2000 & ht-sf2000 as matched for blue ray and having lpcm: 2ch/5.1ch thru hdmi. Also some kind of 'rack style' rht-s10. Not the ht-ct100 or ht-7200dh though. *shrug*
post #39 of 212
I have a ct100 and it offers LPCM. That's how my SA8300 HD DVR box is hooked up.
post #40 of 212
someone just added a thread outside here about the onkyo sp908 only doing 3.1 off of his PS3. so he either doenst have it hooked up right or it doesnt do 7.1 with pcm.

i dotn understand how it can "never" do bitstream, honestly no one has any idea what the PS3 is capable of except the engineers. So unless your an engineer of the CELL and the Ps3 i have to disagree with you.

yes it cant do bitstream right now, but i wouldnt say it never can, unless an Engineer has said so.

Does the Sony DG520 fit the bill, I am a noob, so I can't tell, it seems by the description here that it looks like it, but I am uncertain.

HDMI Pass-Through - Powerful HDMI connectivity allows for uncompressed 1080p video to pass through directly to your HDMI capable television. (A separate cable would be needed for audio.)

Denon 788 does.

I think this thread is abandoned.

This thread hasn't been updated in more than a month, and it clearly violates AVSforum policy of "Not listing your equipment" in your signature.
post #45 of 212
I'm still in the process of learning all this stuff.

Do the receivers in this list decode Dolby TrueHD & DTS-HD Master Audio? Or does the device (Blu-Ray player, PS3, etc.) have to first decode the Dolby TrueHD/DTS-HD and turn the stream into LPCM?

I only see one person on this page of the thread that has their equp listed in their post..


Will

It's not like manufacturer's are popping new HTiB's out every month. It's also less likely that the ones they make actually process audio over HDMI. Why is one month of dead space a big issue?

This thread is invaluable to me and many other PS3 owners who must have audio over HDMI.
post #48 of 212
Where are the rules? I saw rules in the stickies in the Screens section but it seems some sections don't have them.
post #49 of 212
Does anyone know how well any of the HTIBs pair with the samsung ln52a750. i just bought one and would really like to buy a system that pairs nicely with it. I was thinking one of the onkyo systems but not sure. Thanks.

Go to your UserCP and click on "signature". There is a warning that reads in bold, red letters:

"NOTE...Do not list equipment in your signature."

Can anyone please tell me if this one is ok?

Just based on the specs listed for the receiver in that page, I do not see the HD audio stuff, so I would guess no.

Yeah, this is a no-go. I found this quote:

"HDMI Pass-Thru for Video Delivery

HDMI pass-thru enables the delivery of 1080p video content to a compatible display. This means that it will handle the full potential of Blu-ray Disc, DVD, HD broadcasts and console games. 1080p pass-thru capability is perfect for getting the highest possible video resolution from PlayStation® 3 and dedicated Blu-ray Disc players.
Note: A separate audio connection is necessary to process multichannel audio. "

Does the PS3 output audio and video separately? Don't have a avr so I'm not sure.

If you mean can it output and video with connections other than HDMI then yes.

Sorry, mean't can it do hdmi video and then audio separately?
post #57 of 212
I'm a newb, so forgive me. For example, I'm looking at the sony ht2700...and even though it does not say it supports DTS-MA or Dolby True-HD, my PS3 combined with this setup through hdmi WILL give me the HD sound I want, regardless of what the box says? Do I understand this correctly?

Thanks everyone if you can help me make sure I understand this!

If what you mean is HT-7200DH, the answer is yes.

I recently posted in this thread mentioned. I have a ps3 and hooked it up with the as720 I returned for a few reasons, one of them being handshake issues. It didn't matter what I turned on first. I still got handshake issues and others as well like a noticeable quality loss compared to a direct hdmi match to the tv. When it worked, the as720 really was amazing for it's price point!

I spoke to Samsung tech support twice and even they admitted that the as720 had some known handshake issues and they blamed it on hdmi technology being new etc...blah blah blah

In the end, I took it back after hours and hours of frustration and fussing with settings. I love that I have become an expert on the use and settings of gear I no longer own, lol.

What about these onkyo htib's? They're all advertised as 'hdmi simple solutions' just like the s907 & sp908. The bottom 2 are older like the s907:

ht-sp904 (not this one)
ht-sr750 (not this one)
ht-s894
