But on my PS4, Linear PCM outputs only a 2.1 signal. Surround speakers are silent and not lit. Even on the same cable and HDMI input where the PS3 was working like a champ.
In order to get proper surround sound from games, I need to switch to Bistream (DTS).
What I'd like to know is does anyone else have the same issue with their PS4 or is it limited to my receiver only?!
If Linear PCM on PS4 for sure outputs 5.1/7.1 in your setup with lit speakers, sound coming from speakers, and no "fake" surround enabled, can you please tell me your brand and model of receiver?
I might just switch out to another receiver with a better GUI interface because I seriously overbought into the ES line after a bad experience with Yamaha.
