Hi there,

I own a Philips BDP2800/12 Blu-Ray player. Unfortunately audio via HDMI is not working as intended. The player is connected to my TX-NR709 receiver which decodes all multi channel formats available on Blu-Ray including DTS Master Audio and Dolby Digital True HD.

In the setup menu I am presented with two possibilities, "Auto" and "Bitstream". If I choose "auto" I get the following output:

Dolby Digital is transfered as Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital True HD is transfered as 2CH PCM (!)
DTS Master Audio is transfered as 5.1CH PCM

if I choose Bitstream i get the following output:
Dolby Digital is transfered as Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital True HD is transfered as Dolby Digital True HD
DTS Master Audio is transfered as DTS (not Master Audio)

I have tried the same discs using my PS3 Slim and choosing bitstream i really get the tracks transfered correctly. I have tried several discs, all with the same result.

I have tried finding a new firmware, but it seems that there are no update files available. Also trying to update directly via net is without luck.

Anyway, this is a major disappointment. Has anybody else noticed similar issues?

BR,
René
