On the Blu Ray version of Black Hawk Down there is an audio option called PCM 5.1. Under audio options in my Blu Ray player (Panasonic BD-30), I have set everything to Bitstream but you can also set it to PCM. However when set to PCM, the display on my receiver does not indicate that the rear speakers are active but there is sound coming out of them. I assume that for Lossless and PCM sound I need to purchase a new amp/receiver?
Picked up a couple of Blu Ray disks now that I have the player and 1080P television. I noticed that on the back of Kingdom of Heaven that the only audio indicated is "Lossless 5.1". My amp/receiver does not have a HDMI input. I have my Blu Ray player connected to the amp/receiver by coaxial cable. Will I still get 5.1 surround even though my receiver does not have HDMI connections? Thanks.
