naks said:No, the multichannel playback is set to Direct mode.
Switching the playback to Stereo (whether DSD or CD) works fine, and the upmixing works fine as well.
What I'm seeing is that something in that specific SACD is causing the surround amp to freeze, and unplugging/replugging the speaker terminals seems to reset them.
I don't have this issue when playing multichannel DSD files from my PC
Drifter said:That is indeed extremely weird.
Must be some or other software bug where it is unfamiliar with the audio stream.
If you put the AVR in Direct Mode, what decoding does it default to once it gets the multichannel stream? Dolby Digital?
naks said:[member=2808]BiZKiT[/member] says there was a batch of T778s with problematic amp modules, so looks like mine is part of the batch.
It needs to go back for new amp modules :wallbreak:
Drifter said:Yeah I think pretty much what mine did. Just on all channels.
Mine was one of the first to be made. Yours should be a very very much later model.
boet, I drive Land Rovers. As the saying goes, I'd rather push my Landy than drive Jap crap :flame:Get a Denon .....
:BWAHAHAH:PS. When you get it back and it is "fixed", don't let us know as I will just jinx it again.

naks said:AVR just arrived back, a few minutes after I had the TV mounted on the wall - I wanted the T778 to be up top where the LCD could be more of a feature.
Surround channels are back :thumbs:
I must still tidy up the now empty bottom shelf - maybe I'll put some Lego there, just to mask the void.
Drifter said:I like the AVR on top.
That looks really good.
What about getting two funky bookends and putting your DVD's / BluRay's between them on that bottom shelf.
