I am very unclear though regarding Bitstreamed and LPCM ones. Basically I would like to burn DVD-9 rips of Blu-ray discs containing HD soundtracks if it is possible for the PS3 to play them, or alternatively play then unburned from say an external drive.
So assuming I cannot stream these is it possible to get HD results sounds-wise via a burned DVD-9 and or playing them from an external drive?
Well, it should depend on whether or not they put a good DAC in there. I really have no experience with that or recommendations for it.rozel wrote:Your further help would be appreciated as I'm thinking about buying an expensive HDMI to 7.1 switch from Octava to feed my non-HDMI equipped amp - do you think this is the way to go?

Your PS3/Blu-ray player cannot play HD audio since you can't connect to your receiver through HDMI. To get around this, you want to rip your Blu-rays, take out the main video and HD audio, and then burn them on DVD-9 DVD's. Then these can be played on one of your DVD players capable of bitstreaming the HD audio to your current amp. That sound right...?
This gives a nice real-world analogy for what's going on: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthre ... st10448682rozel wrote:1. what is the difference between Bitstreamed signals and LPCM ones?
I'm pretty sure the HD audio is only supported from the optical drive, not from streamed media or media on its harddrive (or external drive).rozel wrote:2. Instead of burning a disc, can the PS3 play back HD sound tracks via an external drive?

Thanks. Post has been edited.enigma69 wrote:the audio rate it 4.6Mbps when I use it, so the comments about LPCM being limited to 1.5 are incorrect they only apply to toslink not HDMI
