Hi, maybe just a stupid question.
o HDMI Passthrough: Use this setting when your Mede8er is connected with a HDMI cable to your TV and your Home Cinema set or audio amp is connected through HDMI to your TV. Your audio set will switch to the right audio mode
If you have a home theatre receiver with HDMI inputs, shouldn't the Mede8er be connected to the HT receiver with HDMI and from the HT receiver to the TV with HDMI? How does DTS/ DD5.1 passthrough work, if the Mede8er is connected directly to the TV and the TV to the HT receiver?
My setup is: Mede8er via HDMI ---> Yamaha RX-V 1065 HT receiver via HDMI --> Samsung LCD TV.
I'm running FW v2.0.1. I have yet to upgrade to 2.0.2.
I'm asking because, no matter if I select HMDI downmix / HDMI passthrough on the mede8er for all my 1080pDTS mkv's,
my HT receiver shows PCM as the audio decoder on the receiver. I would have expected the audio decoder to show DTS/DD with passthrough rather than PCM. Maybe I'm missing something or the Mede8er is decoding the audio regardless of what I'm telling it to do???
