Question about Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver

1 Answer

Dolby DIgital 5.1 doesn't work with DVD', only DTS works.

I don't know what happened. I don't use my tx-ds575x all that much, but it should still work the way it used to. I can get movies with DTS ability to play out of the receiver, but I cannot get the ones with just dolby 5.1 to work properly. They only let me use pro-logic or regular stereo. I can even get the dolby digital light to work with my cable box where it is available, but not with my dvd's. Please help me. Thanks, Harry

Re: Dolby DIgital 5.1 doesn't work with DVD', only DTS...

Have you changed your DVD player or it's settings? If the Dolby Digital light comes on then your receiver is working as it is detecting the signal format. I suggest that you check the set up of the DVD player and make sure that it is set for bitstream and not pcm.

How can i get the dts sound field to work. Shouldn't it automatically switch to that sound field. I have a samsung bluray dvd that hooked up to it.  The dolby pro logic and pro logic 2 indicator...

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.

Unsure of audio setting using Onkyo TX-SR606 connected to PS3

The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.

How to play dts/dolby digital on HK AVR5

I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.

No DTS-HDMA or Dolby TrueHD shown on display

DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD cannot be passed to your receiver via bitstream on the PS3. DTS-HDMA cannot be decoded either so you're out of luck there.
Dolby TrueHD can be decoded internally on the PS3 assuming your firmware is up to date. Set the Blu-ray HDMI output to PCM and you can then pass it to your receiver.
If this doesnt work, do a system update on your PS3.
