What am I missing?
Any help much appreciated. Setting this system up is a real bear. Dennis

If your audio is via HDMI I think you don't want to set it to downmixed PCM. Per page 53 of the manual:
Select this when an HDMI device which has multi channel input
is connected to this player. When you play an HD DVD or DVD video disc recorded in multi channel in Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS
or DTS-HD format, the sound is decoded and output in multi
channel in linear PCM format.
Select this when a 2 channel digital stereo AV receiver or
processor is connected to this player.
I guess it depends on how the 710 handles 2 ch DM PCM. See the chart on page 60 of the manual also.
