Default 5.1 Problem

Hi all.

Noticed the other day that on some of my blu-rays I dont get 5.1 sound. The two that I know I have the issue with are Wall-e and Death Race, both say they have 5.1 surrond sound, but for some reason my surrond sound system doesnt recognise it as 5.1.

I have my ps3 hooked up to my logitech Z5500 using an optical cable. I can get 5.1 on my other blu-rays just seems these two and maybe a couple more I have this issue with.

Anyone know why?

Cheers.

First go to Video Settings, then under "BD Audio Output Format (Optical Digital)" - select Bitstream.

Then go to Sound settings- Audio Output settings - Digital Output (Optical) - And make sure the correct boxes are checked for DTS 5.1 and DD 5.1.

Many thanks I forgot to check the DTS button so hopefully this will solve the problem.

Cheers.

the solution provided will solve the problem because optical cable can only transmit multi-channel lossy audio in compressed format. by setting the output to bitstream the PS3 will send the audio stream in compressed form.

Definitely better to use the HDMI for audio. I've got it set up with optical right now too, but I'm about to change that very shortly.

Sincerely,
Tired of Lossy, Compressed Audio Tracks
