I have a PS3 connected to a Yamaha RX-V1700 via HDMI. The PS3 is new and I use it almost exclusively as a DVD / Blu-Ray player at this stage. I have encountered a problem with some of the audio tracks on animated DVD's played on this player. The most recent one was Ratatloile, where you could hear the thoughts of the characters, but not the spoken voices. I tried to play with audio setup features and language options, but to no avail. If I load the disc into a HD DVD recorder also connected to the Yamaha, the soundtrack plays correctly (not connected via HDMI). Could HDMI be the culprit here or am I missing something...?
