The ACTUAL thing is, thats your experience, not mine. I was very clear about the fact that I don't know how it worked given the older spec of the 3800's HDMI but that it worked somehow anyway.
The other ACTUAL thing is my 3800 passed 3D AND HD audio without any issue at all. Whatever issue you're experiencing with the audio is again, your issue.
Hmmm.... You had full-bandwidth 1080p frame-packed 3D pass to your amp, had the HD audio decoded properly, and you saw a 3D image on your TV?
You said this occurred with Iron Man 2, which is a standard 2D 1080p Blu-ray. The PS3 does not up convert to 3D. Based on this information, there is no way* you were getting a full bandwidth 1080p Frame Packed 3D signal from the PS3 to your amp. I understand that your TV detected a 3D signal, but the far more likely explanation is that there was a glich somewhere in the HDMI chain, or the TV's firmware. It does not mean you really did have full-bandwidth 3D to your amp.
I am not trying to cause offense. I even want to be wrong because I want HDMI audio with 3D from the 3800! I am just looking at what you posted and trying to help explain it in relation to both our experiences. And since we have the same Amp, with the same firmware (AFAICT), and same PS3 settings, we should
have the same results. And in all things, we did have the same results, except for that I tested an actual 3D Blu-ray, and you had something strange happen with the 2D Iron Man 2. If you were to test a full-bandwidth 1080p Frame Packed Blu-ray and get audio, then
we would have something... and that would be amazingly good news for all of us!
*"no way" in the sense that likelihood approaches zero. It is possible the PS3 had a huge malfunction and went full-bandwidth 3D, but since it doesn't even have that much data from the Blu-ray to start with, that's what makes this really unlikely.
