The manual is poorly written. Set Audio Mix to On.I just replaced my PS3 with the Sony UHP-H1. Overall quality seems fine, but I have an issue with 5.1 audio from Netflix.
My UHP-H1 is connected to a Rotel RSP-1069 pre amp, which is HDMI 1.1 (so it does not decode Master Audio and True HD) and to a Sony VPL-HW40ES projector. Since I want the Blu-Ray player to decode lossless multichannel audio and send them to the preamp, I set the Digital Audio Output to "PCM", because, if I set it to "Auto", the player sends the lossy versions of Dolby Digital and DTS to the preamp.
I have set [BD Audio MIX Setting] to "Off" because on the manual it says "Select this to output HD audio signals to
an AV amplifier (receiver)".
The problem is that when the Digital Audio Output is set to "PCM", Netflix only shows the 2.0 versions of the audio track. If I set Digital Audio Output to "Auto" instead, Netflix shows the 5.1 versions of the audio track also.
The solution I have adopted is to set "Auto" when I watch Netflix and "PCM" when I watch Blu-Ray discs, but as you can understand, it is quite annoying.
Anyone can help ?
Thanks for the reply, that's promising. Are you getting "DSD Direct" on your SC-99 when you initially play and SACD? All I'm getting is the (small) "PCM" indicator at this point. Are you using HDMI 1 or 2 out of the UHP?Hey..I am able to send DSD from the UHP to my Pioneer Elite SC-99 through HDMI.
What are you replacing and what else is in your system?

I'm interesting in buying this player primarily for its 2 channel CD/SACD playback via the analog outs.

Then, I guess, you know how I feel about the two.I did read your comments before. It would be replacing (for music playback only) my Oppo BDP-103, which while sounds very good is not quite satisfying to me. I don't know, the tone quality is like too bland or clinical or something...I can't quite put my finger on it.
