Default Onkyo TX-SR805

My 805 came in Tuesday. I hooked up the HD A2 and all I can say is unbelievable!! The sound that came thru my speakers was amazing. The detail, clarity, and tightness of the sound, it was fantastic!! One ? though. For those of you who have the 605 or the 805, how are you playing your audio with SDDVD's? You can only assign one audio input to a component and when you play the SDDVD's through the HDMI it doesn't bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS, etc. I switched the receiver back and forth between HDMI and optical on SDDVD and I felt that the bitstream from the optical sounded better. Any suggestions, or are you guys just switching it manually when you play a SDDVD?

Default Check this out!

On the AVS forums they are saying to set your HD A2 HDMI to Auto and your optical to PCM. It doesn't make sense, but the guy claims that if you don't set your optical to PCM then you don't get the highest quality PCM stream thru the HDMI. Take a look at about the 16 or 17 post down.


I tried this and it does allow bitstreams of Dolby Digital, DTS, etc. thru HDMI with SDDVDs. But I don't think I can tell a difference on HDDVD.
