Has anyone been able to bitstream any of the lossy DTS or Dolby Digital via HDMI from a DVD-2910 to a AVR-3808? I have the HDMI audio set to Multi (Normal) and the AVR set to Auto Decode. The screen shows 5 channels plus the subwoofer coming in as Multi PCM. I can send the Audio via Optical Bitstream but cannot with HDMI. Is there a handshake issue going on? I have the most recent firmware for both the player and the receiver. I am using a 6 foot long 1.3a grade HDMI cable if that matters.

The PCM is just the uncompressed digital audio from the disc. The player is decoding instead of the receiver. I would bet if you hook up a coax or optical cable to the receiver you wouldn't hear any difference between the two.


But to answer your question, I don't know if the 2910 can send bitstream DD or DTS via HDMI. Is there a Bitstream option for HDMI? It's possible that it could be a handshake issue but at least you can still get the correct audio.
