    I have Avatar Bluray disc, when I play this looks like I am getting only 5.1 audio out (no sound from rear high surrounds).
    I set my receiver in 7.1 config.
    My Sony player has youtube app. When I play any video from that, I get sound from all speakers.

    Can someone please help me fix this? I like to have sound from all speakers when I play blueray discs also.

    I will have to find out when I go home. Can you please explain those 2 options, what it means, and which of them will work for 7.1? Also do I need to check anything in receiver?

    I see that nobody has yet mentioned that the Avatar Blu-rays only have 5.1 sound, so you're going to need to turn on some sort of processing to spread the sound into the two extra speakers.

    I don't own Avatar...wouldn't know. So yes, turn on some processing.

    Or alternatively, leave the processing disabled and simply listen to the soundtrack in the native format intended by its creators. :)

    Thanks everyone for your replies, I will leave it 5.1.
    But I figured out to change it to 7.1 by changing audio settings in my bluray player.
