And you might also check that your Blu-ray player has the latest SW updates. Maybe it's having trouble decoding the audio formats??

If one source device doesn't work, then you've got your answer. If you had an issue with the pre-pro, it would be across all source devices. I would note, if you are receiving a 5 channel mix, you cannot apply post processing, upmixing modes (that would essentially be telling the processor to take a 5 channel mix and upmix it to 5 channels - no can do).

This BR only has HDMI. The player says it's 5.1 (which it has to be, or the 975 would report only two channels, like it does for the menus of most discs.)

I'm going to test the Halo test again and see what the lights look like.

Thanks, so far!

It has got to be in the BDP menu somewhere.

You might also try swapping the HDMI cables between the X-BOX and the BDP. You may have a bad cable in the mix. Assuming the cables both test good, one other test to rule out the Outlaw would be to swap inputs between the X-BOX and the BDP. That will rule out a bad input on the pre/pro.

All that said, I'm also inclined to believe it's something in your BDP setup somewhere. Are you able to tell us the model and/or how you have the output set?
