My PS3 is connected on the AVR through HDMI, I have a 7.1 setup because my room topology required it. It works fine, the AVR is set to trueHD when the bluray is, it's 7.1 sometimes, 5.1 other times depending on the source.
I was wondering if there is a way that the receiver changes to 7 channel stereo when the PS3 plays music only. The problem is that when the AVR tries to interpret the stereo stream, it puts the voices on the front, and it changes the music which is mixed for stereo. It's always a pain to change the settings all the time, maybe there is an automatic way of changing this... On the PS3 or the AVR.
If anyone of you has an idea, I know it might not be in the AVR backyard but in the PS3 one, it's just that I am quite sure some competent dude have the same setup!!
