No HD audio from Denon receiver after connecting to Sony BD player.

Until recently I had my Denon AVR-X2100 connected to my LG BH200 bluray player. There was never a problem with the audio and it would happily play output HD audio.

When my LG BH200 BD player broke, I decided to get a Sony BDP-S1500 BD player. Much like my previous BD player, the Sony BDP-S1500 is connected to my Denon AVR-X2100 receiver with a HDMI cable. All the settings on my Denon received are exactly the same as when they were connected to my previous player.

But there's a little problem. For some reason, the Denon receiver isn't outputting HD audio. I've looked at the settings of the BD player and all seems OK. I've even looked at the settings of my Denon receiver, but as they were fine when connected to my LG player, I know they are fine.

If anyone can offer any possible solutions to this problems then it would be greatly appreciated.

Why is it you believe the AVR isn't outputting HD audio? If the front panel displays "Multi CH in" then it means you have the Sony BDP set to "PCM" instead of "bitstream" with Secondary Audio/Mix set to OFF, however, the Sony is still passing HD audio if that is the track selected on the BD.

For additional help with your X2100W, please refer to posts 3 -6 in the 2014 Denon AVR Owner's thread linked below ....

When my LG player would play a disc with HD audio, the front panel of my Denon receiver would display "DTS HD" or "DOLBY D HD".

However, when playing a disc with HD audio on my Sony player the front panel on the Denon receiver is only displaying "DTS' or DOLBY D'.

Again, see post above...

Make sure your BD player's output is BITSTREAM. Go through your BD Player menus and make sure Multi-Channel is on. Check HDMI settings. This is not a hardware problem.

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.

From the manual;
[BD Audio MIX Setting]
[On]: Outputs the audio obtained by mixing the interactive and secondary audio to the primary audio.
[Off]: Outputs the primary audio only.Select this to output HD audio signals to an AV amplifier (receiver).

Double check this setting and make sure it is set to OFF.

Assuming all your settings are correct, I'd say the problem is in the HDMI handshakes. A miscommunication between the BD player & the TV on the other end can cause this. I have a Samsung BD player connected to a Yamaha receiver, and whether the receiver gets the desired audio from the BD Player depends upon what TV is connected to the receiver. This is true even though no audio is passed to the TV & its speakers are turned off. The mysteries of HDMI.
