Re: VR-606 DTS won't work

All I can tell you is that "CD/DVD" must be selected as the source when using the optical digital input on the VR-606/616. I don't believe it needs more than one input (optical or coaxial) to output DTS sound, assuming the source is outputting DTS in the first place.

I have a new Samsung 47 in LCD and Kenwood DVD purchased in 2005. I am trying to hook both up to get surround sound from my Kenwood VR-606. My signal is coming from a HD cable box. I'm using HDMI from the...

Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

DTS option shows on the display when playing a DTS movie, but unit will only play in Dolby when trying to select listen mode...I can't select DTS mode

That is a typical function of the movie you are watching..changing the sound mode can "usually" only be done by selecting it on the disc, or by using the audio button on your player depending on the model.

Does kenwood VR-405 play DTS-HD Master

I have the 405 and a Samsung 3600 which has onboard DTS Master/ Dolby True HD. Out of the 6 movies I 've watched, only 2 have given me Dolby Digital. Bottom line: If the movie doesn't have DD, you cant get DD on the 405. I thought just about all blu rays had DD but its not so. Its time for us to upgrade!

Different Audio options from an older receiver

If your receiver has a multichannel input and the player has the multchannel output then that is the only way you can get surround sound from it with source inputs that it cannot decode, such as DTS. The player will then do it alone.
However, in the setup menu of the blu ray player you should be able to change the audio output to downmix to 2ch least you'll get to watch the movie.

My dts is not coming on when I attach it to the dvd with optical

DTS will only come on if you are playing a dts dvd,most of these dvd,s need you to pick dts in the setup menu or sound settings.If you have done this make sure dts out is set to on in your dvd player.

Hope this helps.

Is it worth it

the reciever you have is a dolby prolodgic system. the rear channel is monoral, that is that both rear speackers have the same infomation to it (and not much of it). the new suround sound systems are dolby digital/DTS suround sound. there is a major differance to the sound and the information presented. all channels are discreat and information provided by you digital outputs of your equipment provide the channel info (tv via optical digital out, DVD also optial or coaxal digital out, cable box also optical.)

Surround sound not working properly

Hi guys,

Make sure that your sound aka dvd or whatever is set for a DTS (5.1) set your dvd at bitstreem and your receiver to automatic detection. When your movie will start you will heard your Receiver Relay//Mosfet clicking and a Red led will say DTS once you get there you will be able to select your Doldy digital surround the real one.

Ps: if you want to reset your VR-309 to default HOLD the POWER button for 5 sec unplug it from the wall hold it for 5sec while unplugged and replug it will be rested to default.
