From what I read online, DTS:X is layered on top of the DTS-HD Master Audio and since the soundbar doesn't support DTS:X makes sense it can't get the 7.1.
However, the Vudu stream is Dolby Digital Plus and I thought that was supposed to be 7.1 ch. With Surround OFF, no sound at all from the rears. What gives?
I, too, popped in Jurassic World and, after monkeying around with the settings on my PS3, I was able to play DTS-HD High Resolution Audio in 7.1 (maybe). I’m doing bitstream direct, and manually checked the HRA option in the Sound Settings -> Audio output -> HDMI -> manual menu of the PS3’s setup.
While playing the Blu ray, I made sure DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 was picked for “spoken language”.
Pressing the display button on the PS3 remote during play resulted in only a DTS icon at the top of the screen.
I’m pretty sure I’m getting the right discrete channels on the surrounds.
My guess is, even though the PS3 has the HRA option available, and the Blu ray is set to output MA, it is actually streaming DTS Digital Surround 5.1, instead of HRA. My guess is, only DTS DS and MA codecs are on the disc and not HRA. The label on the Blu ray disc’s box only indicates MA and Dolby Digital 5.1 for the English track.
When I tried to do the same with PS3 settings having Master Audio also checked, I got no sound, as expected. Pressing display, I get a DTS-HD MA icon at the top of the screen (and no sound).
So, I’m not sure if HRA was streaming, and if it was, did the SK10Y process it. Either way, I never see the SK10Y’s output display what codec it is trying to process.
SK10Y settings are all default.
My PS3 is connected to HDMI1 and HDMI out is connected to the ARC connection of my LG C9 (although no audio should be streaming across ARC, right?). Also, I have the SPK8-S.
