Re: New Receiver not decoding via HDMI
OK, short story is that I received a new receiver and it behaved the same way. What I managed to find out, it that with full HDMI passthrough turned on, the source components handshake with the end monitor to find out what audio signal it will support. My TV has only two channels, therefore the components only sent a two channel signal.
I turned off the HDMI passthrough feature and immediately had all six channels being decoded/passed to the receiver.
Would have been nice if Yamaha had mentioned that in the manual.
Oh well, live and learn.
BTW; It is a great receiver.
Thanks to all for the suggestions and advice.
