    PCM vs. Dolby Digital 3.1 audio?

    I have a (somewhat) older JVC 37" TV in the family room (JLC37BC3000). It has 2 audio choices for the optical audio, PCM and Dolby Digital, no HDMI out. My current soundbar is 2.1 but I really want a center channel for dialog. I'm looking at a Samsung 3.1 soundbar. However, I don't know (and...

    Anyone here knows my concern? I have Oppo UDP 203 connected to Outlaw 976 prepro via 7.1 analog as 976 HDMI can’t seem to process DSD (SACD feed format) - audio muted which is what Oppo mentioned in its manual. Now 976 still shows PCM even with the DSD feed. I thought when fed through 7.1 RCA...

    PCM and DVD Audio

    My old Oppo 93 died so I bought a new Yamaha BD-A1060. The Yamaha does everything but DVD A's. I have quite a few from the old days. I looked online and someone said they do play DVD A's. Sure enough when I fired one up it played as a multi-PCM through my new Anthem. This is exactly what...

    Bit confused. Recently purchased a Yamaha VX-581 Dolby Atmos receiver. And also the Samsung 4K player along with the LG OLED 65 E6 I just popped in Jack Reacher and it says to enable bit stream out to enjoy Dolby Atmos. Had it set on PCM so the three choices I have are PCM BITSTREAM...

    YouTube and PCM multi channel

    Hello HT fans, I am not sure if this has been discussed already, but last night I just noticed for the first time that while playing YouTube on my Sony BDP7200 player that all 7 channels were displayed on the receiver. I thought at first it was a receiver error, so I tried doing YouTube through...

    Onkyo TX-NR747 - no rear channels with PCM 4.0 playback?

    I am having an unusual issue with my TX-NR747. Anytime I send a 4.0 PCM audio signal to the Onkyo there is no sound coming from the rear channels. It's only with PCM 4.0 that I have no rear channels. If I play 5.1, 7.1 they all work fine. The TX-NR747 isn't down mixing the rear channels of the...
