Hi, thnx for taking a look by the way, hope u can help me...
always I select the DTS format on my DVD's, there seems to be a problem, where once in a while (around each 15 sec.)There is this small pause on the sound... and is very annoying, i dont have any idea why could this be happening. I hope you can help me, cause its really anoying to have to see movies that have DTS on Dolby Digital...
You've not made the problem clear. The sound "pauses" every fifteen seconds? For how long and what happens when it comes back? Which DTS decoder are you using and which connection between player and amplifier have you decided to use?
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

HI, There are so many audo formats like
Dolby Digital Decoding, Dolby Digital EX Decoding, Dolby Pro Logic Decoding, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic IIX Decoding, dts 96/24 Decoding, dts Decoding, dts NEO:6 Decoding and dts ES Decoding Stereo etc. What ever the AVR get a digital input It will decode the format and convert the same While it in the Auto format mode. If auto format is not selected it will convert the same in to stereo.
hi,it seems to be your watch is in NORMAL time zone..remember we are now in Summer Time thus DTS - daytime saving is effective .. so you need to adjust your watch to select DTS option than it will be ok.. Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :) Thanks
It will change automatically once it detects a suitable digital signal.
So yes it could actually be faulty but more likely you aren't sending a suitable format digital signal from the source. check the digital audio output settings on whatever device you are using
old dvd players will output PCM 2 channel digital or bitstream multichannel (dolby dig or DTS) which your unit can handle whilst new blurays will have some very hi bit rates -eg192khz 24bit. You may need to lower the output in the menus to get the Pioneer to accept them.
It is always possible the optic has got kinked or fractured, which causes light scattering/corruption and will cause the same symptom
If you are playing media that has both dolby digital audio and dts audio, your player and your receiver will decode the first audio codec listed first by default unless you select it otherwise yourself. If your remote or receiver has an A.F.D. (auto format decode) button, press it until your display shows that the sound source is dolby digital or DTS, whichever sound mode it was you wanted when you started your DVD.
Are you playing a TrueHD format disc? Just like DTS 5.1 or any other format if your disc isnt coded in TRUEHD then your not going to get it. DTS or other formats cannot be "converted" to TrueHD like the video portion of a standard def disc. At this point there arent alot of TrueHD discs out but be paitent, this may change. Or not, due to the fact there are other "lossless" formats that may be more widely adopted. Sort of like DTS and THX were when DVD first came out. Hope this helps.
I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:
I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...
I have a Pioneer VSX D908S which is basically the same amplifier as yours with the difference that the one I have has no THX certification, as a matter of fact the service manual is the same, and mine has the same problem. The prblem is located in the DSP board, if you are able to remove the bonett, you will see on the right side a metal cover, remove it, once you have removed it, look for a IC9374 it is located, -looking this board in front to you- almost at the left upper corner, this IC has the PDK042A on it, with a soldering iron resolder this circuit. This is common problem with this pioneer amplifiers, and this procedure not always works, the final solution is to buy the DSP board but it is expensive.
