OK, I'm still trying to get my head around all of this....can someone correct me if I'm wrong?


I have a PS3 and an Onkyo TX-SR674 (level 4 receiver) connected via HDMI.


For Resistance FOM, is the 7.1 sound already discrete in the game? or does the PS3 have to decode it? Being that my TX-SR674 is only HDMI 1.1, I'm confused on what it will and won't do.


HDMI can move 8 discrete paths of audio. So, for RFOM, does the PS3 send the 7.1 audio over those 8 channels on the HDMI? I know my TX-SR674 can't DECODE anything 7.1...but for PS3 games that do and will have 7.1 sound...is there processing involved?


Also, if the player can decode the 7.1 on Blu-rays...it can send the discrete audio over the 1.1 HDMI, right?


Now, what 7.1 formats (if any) can the PS3 decode?



Thanks for any clerification,

The Onkyo TX-SR674 can not handle PCM 7.1 over HDMI. It will only do 5.1 PCM. You can check out the owner's manual on pg. 31 for "Supported Audio Formats". Notice 5.1 PCM is mentioned, but not 7.1 PCM.
