this is not a problem at all. but just my observation.. and maybe someone will know the answer to this question.
My dvd player has dvd audio... so i connect it to the receiver using the 6 RCA outs to the 6 RCA analog inputs on the receiver. nice.. no problem with it.
Sometimes i forget to go back to the PCM coax cable (also hooked up) and leave it on the analog inputs.. the sound is vastly different between the digital cable and the rca analog.. does anyone know why that may be? I assume the answer is because one way.. the dvd players dd decoder is doing the decoding. and with the digi cable.. the receiver is handeling the decoding. either way.. both work. just both offer different sound seperation.
just my two cents, for what it's worth.
