    I want to listen to the 96kHz 24bit PCM track on the Se7en DVD. I can connect via analog or optical. I have read the Yamaha manual, but I can't find my Pioneer manual. I am getting sound through analog inputs, but the 5250 is not displaying "PCM" as it shows in the manual if it is receiving a PCM signal. I don't get any sound through the optical inputs. I thought that the DV333 could pass a digital 96kHz signal and I thought the Yammie could receive one...
    Any advice?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    I'm having the same problems with my Yamaha RX-V3000. When it switches to the 96kHz track, there's no sound. When the menu is playing, I can see that is says f/s=48k in:2/0 but once I switch to 96kHz mode on the DVD, the message disappears and I get no sound.

    Donovan-
    Are you using the Pioneer DV333? Anyone else have some advice?

    Hi Chris,
    No... I'm using a Panasonic RV31. Seems to have the same problem.

    Hmmm....
    Try double-checking your audio setup menu on your DVD player. I know on the Toshiba I used to have, the PCM bitrate defaulted to 48KHz.
    I haven't even tried doing 96KHz with my new Yamaha HTR-5280 yet. Maybe I should try doing that later with my Sony player.

    I vaguely remember reading something in my DVD player manual (Pioneer DVL-919) that when PCM 96 is selected in the setup menu, you will get NO sound if playing a copyrighted disc. Or something along those lines. I'll go look it up again and post back later.

    Since I don't have my manual handy at the moment, I went to Pioneer's web site. They did had a PDF of the manual for the 434, which I assume would be very similar to your 333 model. On page 26 it says:
    On DVDs that contain copy protection, the 96 kHz signal may only be output from the analog audio jacks.
    It also mentions this (digital output is prohibited on some discs when PCM Out is set to 96 kHz) in the Troubleshooting section of the manual (page 52).
