I want to buy an A/V Reciver, but I was wondering about this one model (YAMAHA 5.1-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver RX-V365) at newegg. I know that it's 5.1 suround sound, but I saw some people's comments that it dosen't have a DTS-HD or Dolby True-HD decoder. Now my question is if I hook up my PS3 or Blu-Ray player to the A/V receiver, will I still get 5.1 Surround Sound? And if the answer is yes, will the quality still be good, maybe not as good as DTS-HD or Dolby True-HD great, but still good?

BTW I don't know if ithis is the right forum or not... if not, I'm sorry.

In general: yes - although not sure if you are going to enjoy 5.1 out of that Blu-ray player.

If this receiver has PCM decoding from HDMI connection you might have to set the Blu-ray player to send out multi-channel PCM over HDMI to your receiver. If this receiver has no PCM decoding from HDMI connection, perhaps your blue-ray player has built-in decoder, so you could could analog from there.
