Those settings are correct. When you select a track using one of the listed formats, the player will simply send it to the receiver for decoding. Your AVR display should report whatever format was encoded on the disc you are playing (TrueHD. DTS-HD Master Audio, etc).
im not actually sure if i have dolby pro on the actually amp display it is saying av1 and it also has lit up cinema DSP and sound is coming out of all the speakers, totally lost with this, spoke to richer sounds and they said that it should say true HD or DTS HD on the display if it is outputing it..and also said they would come set it up for 50quid! which i found quite cheeky as id just spent 2k with them on the speaker/amp TV package
is there something in the amp settings i need to change maybe?
There is nothing you need to change on the receiver. Frankly, you may have everything running as it should and simply don't understand what the receiver display means. AV1 is the name of an input - rthe AVR is telling you what input you are using at the time. Cinema DSP refers to a group of Yamaha Digital Signal Processing modes that alter the sound. You may or may not have applied any one of a number of DSP choices. I think you need to spend some time with the manual and the receiver to learn more about how it operates. One thing I would do is turn off any Cinema DSPs, which will make it easier to see what the receiver is actually doing.
