I just thought I'd post here in case someone has already overcome this issue for a STR-DN1060.
My Brother and I "own" the family Cabin and we had a STR-DN860 that "died" last summer. As the Family is used to that unit we decided to buy a STR-DN1060.
Last weekend we went and installed it but when connecting it to a Sony Blu-ray player via HDMI we couldn't get it to play DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. All we could get was a PCM output.
We have a Satellite TV and fed it through the 1060 via it's HDMI feed and got it to play 5.1. We mucked around for hours, and even swapped HDMI cables but no joy.
We couldn't even get a 5.1 output using the Coaxial Cable input. Just PCM.
Of course we didn't want to think it could be the 1060, so we took the Blu-ray player home.
When home I connected it first to my basement system with an old Denon Receiver with the identical Sony Blu-ray player. I even used it's HDMI cable with the same test disk (Toto 40 tours around the sun). And of course it worked just great.
So I took it to the family room and connected it to a STR-DN1050 without changing any settings. It worked flawlessly. We typically use A.F.D.: Auto Format Direct and did so here and MULTICHANNEL was displayed on the 1050. On the 1060 at the Cabin, even if we selected AFD, we only saw PCM displayed and no 5.1 sound.
So I'm now convinced it's the STR-DN1060 at the Cabin. (Of course it's now 250 miles away. Grrrr...)
When we set the 1060 to HD-D.C.S playing a Blu-ray we got 5.1 sound, so we don't understand why we couldn't get it "flat" without the HD-D.C.S effects using AFD.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated before my next trip to the cabin.
