If the denon isn't getting an input signal, then it can't be a setting on the receiver. There is no "play everything except this one type of streamed audio from the blu-ray player" setting. The denon is not acting as the media server, the bdp is, so if no signal is getting to the receiver then the problem must be "upstream".
Thanks for your quick response.
That was my question. How or where do I look to see if the Audio is coming in to Denon? You said to look in the display. I was thinking of looking at 'Input' parameter (which generally show 2ch/5ch,etc)? What should I look in display for to check if no sound is coming in. I have not looked at display part much as my Denon is very low and to read the display I have to be on the floor to read it so I never bothered much in past.
If no sound is coming to Denon then what could could be the possible reason. I mean can it be port or cable or something. As I said before, the Denon works fine for all other cases of playing things from bluray.
Also, I didn't mean to say that Denon should work like media server. Sorry if that came out wrong. I mean to say that connecting a bluray to play music should work just like connecting any media player (boxee, wdlive,etc) which is a common practice. So I was not expecting these complications when I started out to do it.
