I have A Panasonic DMP-BD65 blu ray player, which is connected to my Panasonic TC-L32U22 TV, which is connected via digital optical audio cable to my Xantech optical to coaxial converter, which is connected to my Philips HTS3566D/37B 5.1 sound system via digital coaxial cable. But I have a question. My blu ray player can decode dts hd master audio, dolby true hd, dolby digital, etc., but my receiver comes built in with only a dolby digital and dolby pro logic II decoder, because it's pretty old. I don't intend to watch movies with it though, that's what I use my blu ray player for. So since the blu ray player already does all the decoding, can my receiver play the audio via digital coaxial audio cable? Or does it need an external decoder to play those formats? I figured only discs I viewed on the receiver would require that.
