By the way, now I understand the confusion with Sony BD players this year.
Page 27 and 28 make zero mention of bitstream, none. The only place it mentions bitstream is in "additional information: trouble shooting" on page 34.
Hey Sony, thanks for a shitty OM.
Ok reading the manual now.
Page 27. Where I said "Make sure your secondary audio is off". Right there on page 27...
BD audio mix says "[Off]: Outputs the primary audio only.Select this to output HD audio signals toan AV amplifier (receiver)."Pretty much exactly what I already said. "Turn off secondary audio".Page 28. Downmix says "[Surround]: Outputs audio signals withsurround effects. Select this whenconnecting an audio device that supportsDolby Surround (Pro Logic) or DTSNeo:6."And this is on page 34..."The HD Audio (Dolby Digital Plus,Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD HighResolution Audio, and DTS-HDMaster Audio) is not output bybitstream., Set [BD Audio MIX Setting] in [AudioSettings] setup to [Off] (page 27)., Check that the connected AV amplifier(receiver) is compatible with each HDAudio format."
Perfect, its working now. thanks so much for your help guys. I was about to return this player for another one.
BTW, lovin' my Wharfedale Dimond 10 speakers
