PS4 audio settings - Page 3

post #61 of 88
As I stated above, I have the overall audio output settings set to PCM at the home loading menus. and then have inserted a blu-ray and used the internal audio output settings and changed those to bitstream(direct). There are only two options in this blu-ray audio menu PCM or bitstream(direct). From what I have read this is the only way to get the playstation to output in DTS-HD MA.

That being said, it doesnt output in DTS-HD MA. It seems to be outputting in Dolby Digital, according to my receiver.

Def sounds like a bug then. You've got it set up correctly.

You haven't said wether you have checked in the actual bluray main menu (where you hit PLAY) to see if there is a audio option and make sure that's set right. Many blurays are Dolby Digital by default. Some are only Dolby Digital and many rental discs are also Dolby Digital only.

I am trying to get my PS4 to output in TrueHD or HD Master Audio. I have the PS4 hooked directly to my Pioneer SC-1323-K using HDMI. I have gone through the steps of putting the OVERALL audio settings to output as PCM. and then have inserted a blu-ray and have set the internal audio output settings to Bistream(Direct) as every forum has stated.

Now on the Blu-Ray menu it says the audio format is DTS-HD Master Audio. But my receiver continues to show Dolby Digital on the front of it.

I'm not trying to be rude here, but I am sick of people telling me to keep it in PCM mode and you will get the same quality, because when I switch to bitstream(direct) in the onboard blu-Ray menus it would suggest I AM NOT getting HD Master Audio quality sound. I want to physically be able to see that the audio I am receiving is HD Master Audio or True HD.

If someone could please help that would be great!

Actually i did, when I first posted. But I will quote myself.

Dis you previously have a ps3 and were you able to achieve the results you want? As I've mentioned before in the other thread, lpcm is the way to go for video games in the PS menu and bitstream from the blu ray menu. Again, you are not going to see true hd or dts ma for video games and your receiver will always display pcm on your receiver since the PS4 is decoding the signal, but you should see it during movies since your receiver is decoding the signal. Beyond everything mentioned, all issues with sound is on the developers side and not the PS. For me, some games have been in 5.1 and others in 4.1 and all movies display what sound is playing.

As I have said many times in this thread already...I have it set up like you said, PCM at the home audio menu. Bitstream(direct) in the Blu-Ray PS4 Menu. And the Blu-Ray Menu does have DTS-HD MA selected (it's Avatar the movie if anyone wants to try it themselves) but my receiver says Dolby Digital on the front of it.....

Everything is hooked up directly with HDMI.

And I can't really compare this to what I had before, because my receiver is also new Pioneer SC-1323-K replacing my Onkyo TX-SR805.

Only thing here then is to try another playstation or the issue is with your receiver. Perhaps you changed a setting by mistake. Do you have or had a ps3 and did everything work ok?

Edit: you just answered this

The receiver is literally like right out of the box, I just got it wednesday from Amazon's sale and started playing with it this weekend.
post #71 of 88
Is it the actual movie playing or is it the previews?

If you have done all that and it still says Dolby digital I would start looking at settings in your avr or call Sony tech support.

Something isn't right. If you are using Hdmi. Have it PCM on the main menu. Bitstream in the bluray options menu. And dts master on the bluray, it should be displaying dts master in the avr. Mine is doing it right now.

If you just unpacked and hooked it up then you need to verify what settings need to be adjusted. Like with the 805 you had, you were able to choose what sound format you wanted to playback for each source and you also needed to change the HDMI settings as well. I'd say you read the manual again, assuming you have, and double check everything. I'd also check the receiver threads for an official thread on your receiver and ask others there that may own a PS4 what settings are needed for proper playback

Got the DTS-HD MA to work finally.

I am now having a severe lip sync problem (audio versus screen)

Currently I have everything routed through my receiver SC-1323-K using HDMI. I have my PS4 hooked into the receivr using HDMI and HDMI Out of receiver into the back of the TV. (I also have my cable box hooked up through HDMI to receiver and then using the same HDMI out to the back of TV, so the receiver switches)

Anyways, while watching "Man of Steel" tonight using my PS4 on the LA7400. I noticed a significant amount of delay in sound versus lips on screen (it's probably milliseconds, but it is noticeable for my human eye to detect)

Has anyone had this problem?

How did you fix it?
post #74 of 88
I sound be more clear here. The sound is coming before the lips move. So therefore as someone is finishing a sentence, the lips continue to move for several more milliseconds.

There should be an audio delay feature in the receiver. For my consoles, I have them set on game mode in my video processor to decrease any chance of A/V sync issues.

Sometimes this can be an issue with the tv itself, but as stated above, there is a lip sync feature in your receiver that you can use to compensate. What did you finally do to fix the issue with dts ma?
post #77 of 88
What was the issue? How did you get the DTS Master to show up?
post #78 of 88

You need to set the General Audio Output in the Settings Menu to Linear PCM.

Then when you play a disc you need to go into the internal audio settings for the blu-ray(it will appear as a grey/black at the bottom of the screen when you access it during playback) and set the audio settings there to bitstream(direct)
post #80 of 88
Just as a warning, the menu audio will still show up as something different as those are not coded in the same audio format, the disc must be playing

Wasn't this suggested to you from the very beginning by me, as well as others? Well, either way, glad things are working well for you now.

No this is what I was saying I was doing from the beginning. It wasn't working at the time, but for whatever reason when I switched over to The Man of Steel that I rented from Redbox. It worked.

And you still cannot get DTS-HD MA or True-HD from a PS4 game source. it is not possible.

Because there's no reason to.

The fact that there are so many posts online about it would be a good argument to why it is important to some. Whether the sound quality is the same or not.

If those people really knew what they were asking for...they wouldn't be asking for it.  

 

It's really Son'y fault for not giving any guidance on this, and putting in settings without an explanation.

That is because no games are using DTS-HD MA or Dolby True HD.

Hello

 

I've just received a PS4 and am having problems setting up sound. I have tried various things in this thread, but no joy yet. 

 

I am using an old Sony DVD/Amp combo (DAV DZ260) which works fine with my PS3 and bluray player. I have it connected to my PS4 like this:

 

PS4 >Dig opt to DAV + HDMI to TV

 

The DAV supports DTS and Dolby. 

 

What settings should I have in place on my PS4? I've tried optical out as primary and then every combo possible of audio output types, but no sound at all.
