Re: New Receiver not decoding via HDMI

The problem I have is that it will not "see" anything in the signal from HDMI except 2 channel audio. If I check the signal info for any HDMI input, it always ways 2 channel 48k sampling.
I have a Samsung BD-P1600, Dish HD DVR, and Xbox 360 all connected via HDMI. I've tried them all, BD disc, HD-DVD disc, and HD content on dish. The signal info is always the same, 2 channel, 48k sampling.
While troubleshooting, I connected the BD player via fiber and magically the receiver is showing 5 channel 96k sampling. I assume the same would be true for the Xbox and the Dish DVR if I connected them with fiber as well.
So, my question is...What's going on? Could it be my HDMI cables?
No it is not your cables. I would think that your 1600 needs a firmware update from Samsung. Contact them about this issue.
Anthem, Conrad Johnson, Dish Network/JVC, Dynaudio, Infinity, Integra, JL Audio, Klipsch, Magnepan, Marantz, Martin Logan, Onkyo, Oppo, Outlaw Audio, Panasonic, Paradigm, REL, Sumiko, SVSound, and Toshiba are the brands equipment I currently use. I have owned/used and tested equipment made by just about any manufacturer you can name.
