Go to your control panel
click the sound icon
under the playback tab select the audio device you want to configure
right click properties
check each tab make sure you have dts / dd ticked

you may have software from creative installed check this to make sure you have the soundcard setup to output 5.1 when available

make sure the sound is configured on power dvd

if you cant get it working that way i suggest trying windows media player 11

also remember the soundcard will only output 5.1 if the source is 5.1 a copied dvd for example could be 2 channel stereo

i hope this helps you out !

Speakers not playing


The problem can be the cable or speakers or RX-V463 or settings. Need to check one by one.
Set the RX-V on DTS or Dolby Digital
1) Check Cables - connect the 2 (surround) cables from RXV's Centre Out to Centre speaker. If the Centre speaker works, then cables are ok.
2) Check speakers - Connect each Surround speaker to RXV's Centre out. If it works Speakers are ok.
3) Check RXV - Set it on DTS or Dolby Digital
Connect RXV's surround out (one at a time) L and R to the Centre speaker. If there is no sound, the problem could be RXV's settings (I need to read the manual).

Hope this helps.

How do I get the C5 Subwoofer to activate?


Hello
If subwoofer is inactive now, the sound preference settings you set now is wrong.

Before using the remote control for the following
operation
* Set the remote control mode selector to AUDIO

** There are exceptions in the operation mentioned
above. In such a case, follow each instruction

Dolby Pro Logic II*1

# Dolby Pro Logic II has a newly developed multichannel playback

format to decode all 2 channel sources - stereo source and Dolby

Surround encoded source - into a 5.1 channel.

Dolby Pro Logic II has two modes - Movie mode and Music
mode

# Pro Logic II Movie (MOVIE)
Suitable for reproduction of Dolby Surround encoded sources

# Pro Logic II Music (MUSIC)
Suitable for reproduction of any 2 channel stereo music sources

# Dolby Digital*1

Used to reproduce multichannel soundtracks of the software
encoded with Dolby Digital

# DTS Digital Surround*2

Used to reproduce multichannel soundtracks of the software

encoded with DTS Digital Surround. DTS Digital Surround (DTS) is another discrete multichannel
digital audio format available on CD and DVD software

What kind of optical or coaxial cable do i need to get exces to dts and dolby digital


To get DTS and Dolby Digital sound you will need one of a few types of digital cable to connect the digital output on a device to a digital decoder or receiver. One type of digital cable is the SPDIF Coaxial, which is a single cable that can transmit high quality digital audio. Another cable for digital sound is the Toslink Optical cable which uses plastic or glass fibres depending on the cost to transmit light which is then decoded into sound information. With optical cables the signal can break if the cables are bent too much. The other cable that can be used is the HDMI cable, this is used to stream HD video and HD sound formats such as DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD, these can of course stream the standard Dolby Digital and DTS signals, but for what it is worth I would recomend a SPDIF Coaxial cable. These can be found at hi-fi shops and places such as Maplins or Ebay. They are also cheaper than the other digital cables and more reliable than optical ones. Any type will do as long as you have a decoder or home receiver which can convert the digital information into sound. Infact you can use an RCA composite cable and connect that into the coaxial ports at either end. This will transmit the digital information, but not as good quality as a proper coaxial cable, but you still get the DTS and Dolby Digital formats with full surround sound. I hope that this helps.

The speakers wil not play on the background and the center.


If you connected to a 5.1 surround card and checked and they are connected ok you can hear all the speakers when you play music, movies that are in 5.1 format only. If you want to hear also all of them if you listen to stereo movies/music you must set the sound card to emulate multi channel. Also the player you use to listen music/wath movies must be set to 5.1 and must accept Dolby Digital/ DTS decoding if your sound card doesn't(eg. VLC media player-has integrated DD and DTS decoding and codecs for all tipes/formats).

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.

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.

I have a panasonic SC-PT850 DVD home cinema system, and although it says it is DTS and Dolby 5.1 compatable but it does not give out any sound at all when i play Blueray films or Playstation 3 games which...


Not so much an answer more a shared problem with a slight insight. On the Panasonic manual page 40 http://www.panasonic.ae/EN/Manuals/SC-PT550%20-%20850W.pdf
It states the following: This unit can decode the surround signals received through cable TV box, digital broadcasting or satellite broadcasts. Refer to your equipment’s operating instructions for details. Only Dolby Digital and PCM can be played with this connection.
So it sounds like the SA-PT850 unit will decode DTS from an internal source ie DVD but not from an external source ie ps3 or WDTV which is a shame because I own a WDTV. The solution for me is to convert the dts to ac3 (Dolby digital) which works great. But not sure if this is an option for you.
