My Denon receiver unfortunately won’t correctly play the 4.0 mix. What’s output is just the front channels and the player indicates it’s 2.0. My old Yamaha receiver was able to play it without any troubles. I’ve tested this with other 4.0 discs I have in PCM and there is definitely an issue with the receiver correctly decoding and not with the blu ray player which correctly indicates it’s playing a 4.0 mix. Has anyone else had similar issues ? The 5.1 track plays with no issues.
Can you rip the disc to FLAC and playback that way? If you can download HomerJAU's MMH software and add in a silent Centre & LFE and it'll play.

Unfortunately i have the same problem with my new Marantz SR8012 and my new Pioneer UDP-LX500. It looks like the player identifies the quad track but it won´t be played on my amplifier. Marantz says that some players don´t work perfectly together with the amplifier. I have given up the complaining and am now instead playing them as flac files ripped from the disc with extra empty tracks so it gets played as it should. Actually i can play the quad if it is an DVD-V where i can play the ripped VOB-files and shoose Quad as audio. As my player has an USB port i am more and more playing from external hard drives.

I’ve complained to Denon without any success as well and they won’t recognise the issue. It’s strange as I have a Denon blu ray player so you would think they could work together. There is definitely an issue with the amp not recognising 4.0 PCM.

Are you using the straight X800, or the X800M2? Firmware uptodate, etc? I'm using the X800 with firmware checked about a week ago.
