your htib cannot handle lossless pcm. HD/MA is unpacked by the PS3 and sent as m-ch pcm. your htib can't handle it.
most likely, the french/spanish is lossy old skool formats, which will be fine. you are using optical or something?
this is AFAIK.
and in all honesty, no offense meant to your person, but that low of a quality system will not benefit from lossless audio. if so, it will be of extremely insignificant improvement.
putting top feul into a Yugo still does not make it Formula 1.
and Im not that impressed with lossless improvements anyhow, but I still believe what Im saying.
I just purchased a Samsung PN50A550, which is connected to my PS3 and a Panasonic SC-PT760 HTIB. I also bought Casino Royale, Night at the Museum, and Madden '09. Madden and Casino Royale play perfectly, but when I play Night at the Museum, I get no sound in English. If i change the movie to French or Spanish, the dialoge is fine, but when its English, there is no sound. My PS3 is set up to play 5.1 and all cables are snug.
Does anyone have any ideas what is wrong? Does DTS HD 5.1 sound have special requirements?
