    Sometimes turning off receiver or surround system helps to get the full effect for 5.1 and making sure the Hdmi cable is pushed in, And as said earlier toggle Dolby Digital off and on

    I have the BluRay of Casablanca. It is fantastic. Also, I have the original Jazz Singer in BluRay which is basically a silent film. The picture quality of these two movies are great! The audio is single channel DD for both movies.

    The OP's profile says he has a HR20, two Tivos, and a Sony receiver.

    There were some posts deleted that weren't adding to the discussion. Please, if you can't help, at least don't hurt.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    But he said he was getting "full surround DD" on his Blu-Ray player. That makes the Sony AVR 5.1 a forgone conclusion. Now stop fighting, please.

    Exactly. It was more than obvious that his receiver was at least 5.1 capable.

    You need to check the Dolby Laboratories evolution from AC-3(1995) to DD 5.1(1997), OK?:rolleyes:

    On thursday the OP announced his issues were resolved and thanked everyone. Yet for the past two days you have chosen to interpret what others have posted, than treat them like you're the "All Knowing OZ" of audio/video and argue with them. I assure you the likes of RunnerFL, Hoosier205, hilmar2k, and myself have a better understanding of audio/video technology than you. It's time for you to accept that and stop fighting as RunnerFL requested.

    AC-3(Audio Code number 3), was just Dolby's name for the home version of Dolby Digital which was what it was called in the theaters. Until they just decided to drop the AC-3 designation and call both theater versions and home systems the same thing. In its original form, it could contain anywhere from 1 to 6 channels(5.1). You really need to check your facts before posting. :nono:

    There are still old classic movies that could be released with a DD1.0 soundtrack, since the original sound would have been in mono anyway, why would you mess with the original sound format?

    I dangled that bait and you took it.:D It also served the purpose for you to post the AC-3/DD 5.1 development. I knew the facts otherwise I had NOT dangled the bait you naively took. I have a bunch of AC-3 encoded laserdiscs from Terminator 2, Top Gun to 1997 Star Wars, thank you.:rolleyes:

    I don't give a rat's rear. I know what I know. BTW it's Thursday, correctly I may add! Obviously you do NOT know or how to use then and than correctly in a sentence. Keep them coming because I love to blast simple grammatical blunders! I set my Home Theater ALL by lonesome. I do NOT post belly aching questions about WHY my Directv receiver does NOT do this or do that. Like I posted earlier(deleted!) I will NOT seek a Home Theater opinion from someone of your "eloquent" reputation. Yes, I understand AC-3 now DD 5.1 since 1997. Dolby Laboratories changed that to avoid nomenclature confusions.
    My humble Home Theater:
    Mitsubishi 60" DLP calibrated my myself.
    Onkyo TX-SR875 AVR
    Two Oppo's BDP-83 for BDP's and SACD's
    Oppo DV-983H for SD DVD's and regular CD's
    Directv H20-100 because of OTA channels accessibility
    In addition to that I have swapped engines on riding lawn mowers and fixed an Electrolux vacuum cleaner by replacing the brains outboard. The last two a desert that reflects my mechanical ability. Over 50 college credit hours in Chemistry alone, at least 45 in Biology plus licensed to work in the medical field,not too bad! NO, I am NOT so courageous to prescribe medications such as Midol like you did a couple days ago:eek2: Finally I read, write and speak English and Spanish fluently. That is called a true bilingual. Once more I trust my humble IQ before I ask a Home Theater two cents opinion from you.
    Muchas gracias

    All that science and your license to work in the medical field, and you didn't know Midol is an over-the-counter drug?

    I never made a dime with spelling or grammar but I did accumulate a fortune investing in income properties which enabled me to retire before I was 50! ;) Want to compare resumes? I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks. Got my masters at the University of Da Nang during the Tet Offensive. Earned countless credit hours in the deserts of Iraq during Desert Storm. As for your current response to my post, all it it serves is to prove you're just a legend in your own mind. :sure:
