I have a question about my umc-1, I'm using nothing but hdmi cables for my sony blue ray and my cable hi-deff box but, the umc-1 is saying it is receiving pcm 2 channel signal not 5.1 etc. I checked my settings on the sony blue ray player and my setup selections seem to be correct. The cables have all the right specs any ideas, maybe I'm overlooking something.
Thanks for the replys I will check my blue ray player / I was just talking to my friend he said the same thing about the cable box. Many thanx for the replys stiehl11 and BillBauman its nice to have a place to go and talk and ask questions about our equipment and I'm sure I'll have more questions.
There are tons of helpful people here. It's great, one person will even continue the troubleshooting someone else started with you. Often times you can resolve things really fast on the Emotiva forums.
Let us know how it goes.

My Sony BluRays have some strange naming on their setups that don't really make sense. It took me a while to figure out, but if I recall - the one that made the difference and sent more than PCM to my UMC-1 was the "BD Audio Mix". It needed to be set to Off, if I recall. Otherwise, I got PCM.
Then of course, on certain BluRays, the default audio is not the best audio so I have to toggle the audio setting once the Blu Ray starts.
