I can confirm the same behavior as you are seeing. I tested with the S790 and a Denon 4311. I dont think its the Denon though. I think the Sony players aren't converting to PCM correctly or its a limitation. Not sure. I never use PCM .. just send the bitstream to the Denon.
RajeeK and apw2607,
I hooked up my S790 last night, great PQ, haven't tested audio yet. I have the same problem with my Denon 1909 and I can not quite figure out how to get S790 to send bitstream to my Denon AVR 1909.
I have Sony BDP-S790 player, Wii U and PS3 slim (I know the BD player and PS3 are definitely configured to bitstream) connected to Denon 1909. I am actually surprised that the receiver is showing MULTI CH IN for all 3 components -- How do I confirm who is decoding or downmixing the HD audio? With all 3 components (guessing on Wii U for now) configured to bitstream, I was hoping the receiver would decode the HD audio and I will see the blue light. I hear the audio, video works fine on our Mitsubishi DLP WD-82742 as well. I want to debug upstream a little more to see who is really decoding the audio, but I want to hear if you have any suggestions. I will be very happy to have the bitstream working.
Appreciate any latest info or suggestions you have.
EDIT: By the way, I am using AV separation mode with the 3D TV with most of the settings in auto/default.
