Question about Sony SDP-EP9ES Receiver

Open Question

SDP EP9ES Will not show on display "Dolby Digital"

When I use my DVD player that is Dolby Digital and DTS the Sony will not correctly switch over to the correct sound field. I am using movies that are encoded "Dolby Digital or DTS. The screen on the Sony unit shows "Stereo PCM". The correct soundfield switch does happen when using our DVI connected cable box and a show comes on that is encoded as Dolby Digital. I even bought a new DVD player and hooked it up with the same results. I have also tried several of my DVD's with the same results.

SOURCE: Sony SDP-EP9ES

It is a preamplifier with sound processing which is sometimes referred to as pre pro... There is a simple solution to lack of DTS, the unit has 5 analog bypas inputs, bypass as they do not go through units Digital Signal Processing circuitry and DD processor.
If you have a DVD/BD player that has five (or more) analog outpusts you plug them in into your preamp and have the player decode DTS to analog signal. If the player has five analog outputs it mostly like has the on-board decoder. Other than this you can use a stand-analog DTS decoder in the same manner but it sounds like a cumbersome and costly alternative. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Sony PCM 48 Issue

As long as you continue to have both HDMI and optical outputs connected at same time from the cable box, it will probably always choose the default as HDMI. If you do not want to change any connections then the best thing to do in this case is to always leave the cable box turned on. Otherwise, disconnect the HDMI and connect it to the TV by component video.

SOURCE: how can i get the dts sound field to work.

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.

Problem with Dolby Digital mode


If it is a new DVD that may be a problem, as signal changes may be frustrating this old machine... but it is likely the cabling from the DVD player to the reciever. Are you on the right channels/settings? is the optical cable and digital cable recieving digital output from your DVD player? Try changing those settings and you should be in good shape Thanks! good luck!
