when i am playing movies from my onkyo 405 dvd player it only says front left and front right on my onkyo 805 reciever but when i play from my popcorn hour it also says center, surround left and surround right. i have both connected with hdmi cables. on my onkyo 405 i have set it to auto at hdmi audio output and the other two options are lpcm (2ch) and off so i guess auto is the right one. can any of you please help me with this...do i really need a coxial aswell to get multichannel?


best regards thomas

i already got it figured out...i had to enable digital output to on and then change it from there. hdmi audio to on was not enough as i thought

I'm having the same problem.


For me the Onkyo DV-SP405 won't output 5.1 Dolby or DTS to my Sony HT-CT100 system over HDMI.


If I connect the coax digital output, I do get 5.1, if I connect the HDMI to the unit, I get 2.0 LPCM output, even though HDMI audio is set to "Auto" in the menu.


How can I get 5.1 sound out of the HDMI audio?
