No surround sound in a PS5, LG OLED CX and Anthem MRX 720 setup
will have to excuse my English – but here goes! J
I have a
PS5, an LG OLED 65CX TV and an Anthem MRX 720 receiver where the latter – as you
probably know – does not support HDMI 2.1. I have connected my PS5 directly to
the TV and I am able to play games in 120fps but I have trouble with the sound
as the Anthem now shows PCM 2.0. Shouldn’t I be able to get some kind of
surround sound in this setup?
On the PS5 –
in the audio settings – I have chosen "AV amplifier" under "HDMI
device type" and in the "Number of channels" section I have chosen
"5.1", as this is my setup. I have also tried various settings on the
LG TV in the “Sound” section but as stated earlier, the display on the Anthem shows
“PCM 2.0” no matter what I do. I have naturally also experimented with settings
on the receiver.
So, do you
have any recommendations to the sound settings on the PS5 and the LG TV (“PCM”,
I have read
of different solutions from HDFury (“Hdfury Arcana”) and Thenaudio (“SHARC EARC
HDMI”) and could this be the solution?
very much in advance and best regards
Just out of curiosity, did you try “number of channels” as 7.1? I’m wondering if the Anthem is defaulting to stereo because it’s trying to find a sixth and seventh channel. Have you tried asking Anthem?
Another thought: have you tried another source besides the PS?Maybe you can borrow a cheap Sony Blu Ray or DVD from some friend, or pick one up from a charity shop, and see if you can get MC. And has the PS played in MC with other equipment?
