sony bdp-s550 important information  

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi guys,

i now have the sony bdp-s550 and i'm really happy of it...
but my biggest problem right now is i have star wars with TRUE-HD and it looks like my sony is not sending the right information to my receiver.

i have choosed TRUE-HD from the movie..
i use only HDMI from my blue-ray player to my receiver (HK 354)

it seems like my receiver is only decoding PCM from my blue-ray player...
on the front panel of my receiver i see multi channel PCM.....am i not suppose to see something different liek true-hd or something ??

my receiver is configured to choos ethe best audio decoding....

i'm really desperate because i have read a ton of posts and i didn't find what is wrong....

i don't find a wauy to choose BITSTREAM on my sony blue-ray player either...i assume this is what i need to do ??...

please guys any help would be appreciate...

thanks in advance...

First, this post belongs in the owners thread and will be moved there by a moderator shortly.

As the manual explains, when BD Audio is set to Direct, the S550 negotiates a connection with the receiver. If the AVR supports lossless decoding, the player will bitstream. If the AVR can't do the decoding, the player will decode itself and send PCM to the receiver. There's no setting for bitstream or PCM on this player. Does the HK 354 have HDMI 1.3 and HD dcecoders? If so, is there a setting to enable HD decoding?
