I also need help with the crappy OSD that yamaha has to set xover settings and such...THAT i will try to do on my own with the manual.
Anyway, this thread will hopefully shed some light between the V663 and PS3....thanks!
1) Load up a Bluray with DTS-HD MA track and select it from the menu
2) Hit the Triangle button on your PS3 controller
3) Hit display icon to show what audio codec your AVR is playing (if you really must know)
(or if you have the PS3 BT remote, skip step 2 and just hit display)
Its all been said before, multiple times,
no need for another thread.
The PS3 can only send de-coded DTS-HD MA and TrueHD as PCM,
so that's ALL your AVR will ever show on its display.
The sound is still lossless , its just decoded in the player instead of the AVR.
Audio via HDMI set PS3 to PCM and forget about it, period.
For video settings, it's more dependent on your display, but there is a FAQ in the PS3 section for that,
its been beaten to death in the 663 thread every 4 or 5 pages.
