Hi guy's, Hope you all are well. I have an issue that maybe someone can help me with. I have a Pioneer Elite Vsx- 81txv and I have it hooked up to a samsung Bd player useing Hdmi. The reciever is 1.2a and I believe the cables are 1.2. Now for some reason I cannot get 7.1 to play with a 7.1 disc, it will only play in 5.1. I have checked and rechecked my settings and can't figure it out. I have tried all choices of audio in the bdp-1500,pcm, bitstream(re-encode), bitstream (audiophile) with no change in the result. I called Pioneer and they blame the discs even though I have tried both Bangcock dangerous and Pans Labrinth and they both act the same, no 7.1. Is there something I am overlooking. I tried auto surround, direct, pure direct all with the same result. I am about to scream because this should work, Any idea's????
