    Question BDP3280 and 37PFL8404H: no Multichannel sound thru HDMI ?

    Hello,

    I have a BDP-3280 and a Philips 8404H TV. An HDMI cable between the two. The TV is connected to my Home Cinema (an old Philips HTR5000) thru a Coax Digital cable.
    I also have a Sony PS3 connected thru its HDMI cable on the TV, and a Sat Receiver (Le CUBE, Canal +).

    When playing a 5.1 DVD on the BDP, the TV is always in Stereo Mode, and the HTR is in Stereo mode also.
    When playing the same DVD on the PS3, the TV show "Dolby 3/2" in the information panel, and the HTR500 also show Dolby 3/2.
    With the Sat Receiver, it work also (but I have a very loud sound on channels that do not have Dolby channel)

    I've tried all settings in the HDMI Output menu on the BDP (Auto, PCM, Bitstream), no success.

    Any help ?

    Thanks.

    Hi, welcome to the forum! How long have you had this connection? Has the sound worked fine at some point? Can you confirm software version in your player? Sorry about all the questions!

    Hi,

    this problem was also present with 2010 BDPs in combination with Philips TVs - the BDP always sent 2.0 Dolby Stereo... this was a bug (or is).

    Normally, it's sufficient to setup the BDP to BITSTREAM - then the TV should get 5.1 - but only Dolby Digital.

    DTS is always downsampled, cause the TV does not support DTS.

    I only tried yesterday, after trying to read a DVD with the PS3 for the first time, so it never work before like this.
    Before, I was using a direct cable between BDP and HTR5000, but I experienced a very big delay between video and audio (almost 500msec !). So I tried to connect the TV directly to the HTR. No more delay ! But no Dolby 5.1 sound from the BDP

    BDP is in the latest version (may 2013, I think).

    But it do not work, as it work with the PS3. It's a shame that Philips to Philips do not work ?
