No 5.1 PCM possible?

Hi mods,

can you please check if the ST300 is capable of playing 5.1 PCM properly? I connected two different test devices directly to the HDMI input of the ST300 and played a 5.1 PCM video, but the rear channels were played mainly through the front channels. When i use DTS or Dolby Digital passthrough, everything is working as it should.

 

This is not a real issue for me, but i would prefer 5.1 PCM instead of passthrough audio (due to other settings i want to use with the video player) and i just want to know if it is possible or not.

 

Regards

Hi lena,

 

I've tested this out, and the ST300 cannot accept a PCM 5.1 signal. The compatible formats are Dolby Digital and DTS.

Best,

Brandon
