If you hook the X700 directly to the TV, you will be stuck with only the lower quality Dolby Digital and standard DTS audio formats. To get the DTS Master HD or Dolby TruHD, even the 5.1 version from X or Atmos, you need to be hooked directly to the receiver.
You don't want to use PCM...PCM can be thought of as a digital set of audio cables, simple routing 6 separate signals down separate digital audio "lines" so to speak.On my DH590, my settings for working audio through ARC to my Sony TV are.
Digital Audio output Auto
BD secondary off
Digital Music Enhancer off
DTS Neo off
192kHz (PCM works for PC Windows audio)
Audio DRC off
For my system settings I have
HDMI audio output HDMI1, HDMI2 would be if your using an HDMI cable as a secondary patch cable, 1 is ARC on my receiver
What are you seeing on the AVR display when you are having audio issues? You should see the proper format on the display panel of the AVR when you're playing back...

The Bluray is plugged into the Bluray HDMI input on the receiver which is then plugged into the ARC input of the TV. However, there is no output at all when the audio output is set to "auto" in the bluray settings. Then, if I change the option to PCM it then plays what sounds like background audio only which should be coming out of the surround speakers. The UHD Bluray is format for DTX audio. My sound system setup is only a 5.1 setup. I played with all the settings and could not get any audio to correctly output.
I now have the UHD Bluray player plugged into the HDMI input of the actual TV rather than routing through my audio receiver. It all seems to be correctly working now. The receiver identifies the audio as DTS (3/2.1) and plays the audio through each channel correctly. However, I'd like to know why it will not worked when plugged into the receiver and if there is something I am not setting correctly.
Anyone else having issues with audio output using the X700?
