PS3 is connected to a HDMI AV Receiver so can i get PMS to transcode the ripped 5.1 DTS SACD (WAV format) into PCM?
Your subject is a little misleading since if you have a DTS encoded wav, then it has nothing to do with SACD anymore. SACD is a different codec.
I have tried this and I believe the main problem with it is not in PMS but in the PS3. The PMS will decode the wav and send it as a PCM stream just fine but it will still end up as static-noise in my surround receiver. I have DTS encoded CD's and they play just fine on the PS3 and my receiver.
For this to work one need to make sure that the PS3 doesnt modify the stream by a single bit before sending it out on a digital output. It seems to me that all streaming music on the PS3 is automatically resampled to 48Khz (which completely ruins the DTS encoding), when you play a CD on the other hand it keeps the original 44.1Khz samplerate needed for DTS.
And I'm not able to turn OFF the 48Khz support in sound-settings on the PS3 either so right now I dont have a solution for this other than burning CDs.
