After owning this receiver for 3 years, I finally have an HDTV and Blu-Ray player that is capable of Dolby TrueHD sound and I wanted to test it out. I've set my LG Blu-Ray BD-570 player to primary pass-thru and 192khz as the Blu-Ray manual suggested, and the HDMI is going directly from Blu-Ray to Receiver, then out the Receiver to the TV. I watched The Dark Knight last night which is has TrueHD sound capabilities although the receiver only seemed to detect it as "Dolby D". I will say it did sound much better than any Dolby Digital 5.1 that I am used to, so I'm wondering if the receiver just mis-detected it?
A couple of other things I'll point out:
I did find in the Onkyo manual a reference to an incompatibility or problem with 192khz TrueHD sound, and it mentioned something about 96khz w/o tone control. I did try 192, 96 and 48, none of which changed the detection on the Onkyo to TrueHD.
The receiver showed a "D" in red on the screen. Not sure if this is expected with TrueHD?
I believe I'm using HDMI 1.3 or 1.3a cables, is there a pre-requisite for any specific version of the cable?
So, my questions...what am I doing wrong, or was I indeed listening to TrueHD sound?
