Need Advice On Audio Set-Up For Blu-Ray Player
Posted 21 May 2013 - 05:47 PM
I am no expert and need advice on the correct audio set up for my system.
I have a Panasonic TH-P50V20A plasma TV which is connected to a Yamaha YAS-101 Soundbar via the optical output of the TV. I have a Panasonic DMP-BDT 220 Blu-Ray Player connected to the TV via HDMI.
I am confused by the various settings available for the audio of each unit and want to ensure that I am getting the best possible combination for the Blu-Ray player
For the TV I have options for Digital Audio Preference - Dolby D or MPEG; SPDIF Selection - Auto or PCM; and MPEG Optical level
The Soundbar basically accepts the optical digital signal output from the TV
The Blu-Ray Player audio output is via HDMI to the TV and I have options to control the PCM Down Conversion (?) plus a Downmix option for multi channel to 2 channel sound (?) I don't understand these Downmix settings...
Can someone please give me some guidance on how to get the optimum result from this set up
Cheers & Thanks

SoundBar is fine with Dolby D, SPDIF set to Auto and Down mix set to 2 channel PCM stereo - there is no Off setting for Down Mix
