Re: I Can't Use DTS

Hey... just reading the manual.. p28 "enjoying the sound effects" note says that "this machine is not equipped with dts digital surround decoder. when you select digital sound, sound is not output during playback disc with dts." not sure of the implications of this, but sounds like the problem you spoke of

DTS Doesn't works with my PS3

there are a few versions of DTS. if you are enabling DTS HD master on the menu for a blu ray disc this only outputs through the HDMI port not optical. This goes with all the new versions of DTS. If it is just DTS 5.1 it should go through. Make sure you have all the latest updates for your PS3. Make sure you are enabling DTS in the PS3 menu for optical out.( i dont own one so i dont know the menu at all) I just want to help. I hope this helps alittle and good luck with this.

HTddw670 play only 3.1

The problem sounds like it is the dvd player, have you set-up the audio output menu on the dvd players setup menu? Some dvd units default to a 2 channel stereo output, what is required is you need to enter the setuo menu and enable a dolby digital 5.1 output or the DTS/Bitsteam audio output option. Also be sure to use a digital signal cable connection.

Cant turn on dts on dvd player

First check that the DVD has DTS (digital theater sound). Then you may need to change the audio option. In the main menu of the dvd go to sound options or set-up and check that its not 5.1 or some other audio option and is in DTS.

You did not list the make or model of your dvd player and or receiver, It would help if I had this info.

SC-RT50 Decoding Surround Sound From Aux and Inputs

The other players need to be setup to output digital sound. Assuming you are using a digital or optical audio cable, go into the setup screen of the Blu-Ray or Tivo etc. and select the audio setup screen. Set the audio output to PCM.

Does not play multichannel audio (5.1) input through optical digital audio

Hi try this.

in the dvd player make sure you just leave it default (bitstream) but in the home theater receiver don't select 5.1 b/c that will only give you a virtual 5.1 not a true 5.1. In fact don't select any sound field at all just select dolby digital or dts depending on the source of the movie then you should be ok.

The only other problem i can see is that hdmi sends both the sound and picture to the tv. You will need to see if there's a function on the dvd player to only send the picture via hdmi and the sound via the optical out of the dvd player.

good luck

Surround sound

Hello catch22
Find Amp-Menu button on remote and try another Amp Selection. Pro Logic & DTS wont give sound in all speakers while in-put signal is analog.
