I may have to take it back though. I'm getting a green video blip from time to time (maybe every hour, random) that seems to be related to the Yamaha Receiver having pass through problems, and not any device or cable.
Anyone hear of anything similar?
I like the receiver and would likely do a replacement unless someone has a good upgrade on Newegg to suggest...
I have been testing a couple movies, Avatar & Casino Royale.
I have a PS3 set to send PCM, not bitstream.
I have a 5.1 Bose Acoustimass 15 set. No 7.1 yet.
I did the YPAO setup and it seemed to dial things in pretty well, I did have the freq error on the sub but I think it's bogus because it's obstructed a bit.
When I check the info on the PS3 during Blu-Ray playback it shows about a max of 5mbps audio with DTS-HD-MA @ 48kHz in 5.1.
My questions are these...
Is that the max kHz I should be seeing in 5.1 DTS-HD with Avatar or Casino Royale? 48kHz?
I have never seen it go above 48kHz no matter what I try on the PS3.
The audio bandwidth never really exceeds 5mbps for either movie (VBR), does that sound right as well?
Some of my observations...
It seems that no matter what, 'Direct' just gives the best clarity of sound by far. 'Straight', and all DSP's for that matter, just seems to dull the range and clarity of sound and the effects a lot compared to 'Direct' with DTS-HD.
Maybe the Bose speakers really allow me to notice it. But if you are running PCM on a PS3 player, it seems 'Direct' on the receiver really can make a big impact in the fine details (realism of metallic sounds, wood breaking, sand, rocks, etc).
I will likely only end up using 'Straight' if using bitstream on a BD player, other than PS3. So far Spectacle, Sci-Fi, Adventure DSP's haven't really added anything to the experience that Direct doesn't do better, IMO, atleast on the PS3. Just thought I'd add some of my observations.
