Default Audio Formats and the BD-UP5000

This maybe covered in one of the threads.. but I can not seem to find the answer that I am looking for..

Since my receiver only has optical/SPIF input which audio setting should I use?? Confusedbbblu
Also my receiver does have 5.1 analog inputs.. will I get at least 5.1 audio from HD-DVD/BluRay discs that have DolbyTrue-HD audio Formats?

Well I am now 'Purple' sort of.. don't own any BluRay yet...hhhhdvd bbblu
Now to go and rent a 'BluRay' Disc...


"OR" what is the least costly HDMI DolbyTrue-HD supporing receiver on the market?

Well right now TrueHD through analog provided that it's the only track on the disc is only 2 channel. DTS MA,True HD audio codecs are supposed to be updated in a firmware some time this month.

Now if you're anxious to get the audio quickly.....the Onkyo 605 is a HDMI 1.3 reciever that decodes everything for roughly 500 bucks...if you do some searching. Circut city sells them for starters.

Myself I am waiting on the firmware update, since the receiver I have is not even a year old yet. It's HDMI pass through....so that's like video only.. or some bullshit. But it's a 7.1 so once I get a new place were I can put up my other speakers I'd have a sweet home theater and HD goodness.

Use bitstream audiophile if you want the best sound from your current system . The 605 is a good choice but I would wait for the update and buy a 606 if I were you .
