Your player has as much to do with this as the receiver. It must be set to transmit the DTS bitstream. Even within a given DVD movie there are choices for which of several soundtracks to be used.

My surround sound won't work now when I play the dvd player


Could be many things - I know, bad answer. There is no simple answer or fix.

Without more info one can only speculate.

Please determine and answer as many or all of the following so that we can help.

1) What is the make and model number of the Surround sound unit?
2) What is the make and model of the DVD player?
3) How is the DVD player connected to the Surround sound unit?
3a) Is it connected via an HDMI cable?
3b) Does the DVD player have regular stereo connections that you are using (we call these analog audio connectors)?
3c) does the DVD player have digital audio outputs that are connected to the Surround sound receiver?
4) Did the DVD player EVER make sound?
4a) if yes - what changed?
4b) if yes - does this happen with different discs?

Now some general points.
I'll assume that the other sources do work and play sound through all speakers when they are supposed to play sound through all speakers.

Then - I'll assume that without changing anything else you select the DVD player input that used to make sound but doesn't now.

Problem could be the encoding option that you have selected when you play the disc.
Many DVD's and Bluray's have audio options that you can select from the disc's main menu.
Dolby digital is the most common - also known as AC3.
Some discs have another digital audio track called DTS.

Not all surround receivers can decode all formats.

Even if your surround receiver claims to be able to decode AC3 and DTS, they will not if you don't connect the correct cable to the receiver and usually map the input to the correct digital audio connection that you are using OR if your DVD player is not capable of outputting all formats.

There are many different ways to connect the gear and many different ways one can configure correctly or not; all contributing to whether you get sound or not.

So in the above example - by selecting DTS, you do not get any sound - then try another audio track option. Basic stereo usually works (also know as PCM - which is audio like a CD).

OR maybe you never properly configured the audio properties of the DVD player.

Go into the DVD's menu or set up options and see what you find but make sure you know how the DVD is connected to your surround receiver!

As you can see - there is no simple answer without a lengthy Q and A exchange first.

I have marantz Av surround receiver model SR301 I have tried a lot but I am having sound from only 2 speaker when I put in setero mode but when I put in surround no sound from any speakers I checked all...


First off you will need to do a little bit of trouble shooting. Is the source (dvd, Blu-ray, cable box, etc...) plugged into the receiver with the standard red and white RCA cord or by an optical (toslink-fiber optic) or digital RCA (orange color code). If you are connected with a standard RCA cord then that it your problem and you need buy digital cord that both the source device and the receiver can accept (toslink - http://www.we-supply.com/browse.cfm/optical:-audio/2,779.html or Digital RCA). If the connection is now correct then you need to make your receiver do a "test-tone" to insure that a signal can be sent to every speaker (this is an internal test that just checks the speaker connections). If the tone tone operates correctly then you know the amplifier is functioning. If both of the mentioned things are now done and still not surround output then you need to check the internal menus on your source device and make sure that it does not require you to manual change a setting in the audio menu to make it work (i.e. change from 2-ch 44KHz to 5.1 or 7.1 or Dolby Digital or AC3 or some other surround sound protocol.)

In your DVD player audio setup change the digital output to bitstream. You have not mentioned which DVD player you are using.

Some players it will be given
Digital Out - Off/ On select On
Dolby Digital - Dolby / PCM select Dolby

Everytime I use the DTS functions to enable my surround sound, no sound goes to my speakers. I am able to use it only for the standard output with the left and right front speakers. What could be causing...


DTS should be enabled only if your source has a DTS digital audio out connected to the receiver.Mostly only DVD / Bluray players have DTS sound and is outputted through an optical or co-axial port on the back of the player. Its a multichannel digital encryption technology where the signal is sent through one cable and your receiver decodes it into 5.1 or 7.1 channels according to the source.

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.

What to connect to where?


I would run toslink optical if you have it, if not then use coaxial digital from your TV output to receiver input. this will handle all the sound that goes with watching TV from any source(dvd player, cable, etc)

I would run the DVD player into the TV hopefully with HDMI cable so you get the surround sound.

the television can split off the audio information from the HDMI and send it back through the toslink cable to the receiver which decodes it into surround sound for your speakers.

Connecting media center to receiver


Hey there,

Okay let me start with your pc setup. What type of sound card are you using? Are you using onboard? You have to check and see if the sound card or device you are using supports SPDIF passthrough. Basically this does just what it says...passes the surround sound signal through your hardware with no onboard decoding and uses the decoder found on your stereo. I use a soundblaster Audigy and i had to enable passthrough in the audio console. I also had to enable spdif as my default audio playback device. This is in Windows Vista. You also need to go into properties and set the formats your receiver supports. Once that is complete you need to adjust the audio settings in media center and select toslink as your audio output and select 5.1 audio.

Things should work now...BUT...you will only get surround sound audio when watching a source that has dolby 5.1 or DTS. You will not get surround sound in games =( When i watch ota hd shows that have dolby audio, the blue light kicks on in my receiver and i get 5.1 audio. Same goes for watching DVD's. I hope this helps you out

RXV 1500, I am unable to get 5.1 audio


Just got off the phone with Yamaha customer support, who were very helpful.  The display on the amp, in the lower right hand corner, displays the source input, not the output.  So, for example, you can be watching cable tv, and the cable tv is sending a 2-channel stereo signal to your receiver.  Your amp shows only L and R.  But since it has a processing system, depending on the processing program you have chosen it will probably distribute that sound to all five speakers.  You will be confused, because you hear sound from all speakers but you only see L and R lit up.  You will believe that you are not getting 5.1 sound.  And you will be correct: you aren't, because the source is not sending you a five-channel signal.  That's where I got panicked.  So the Yamaha representative said, insert a DVD that you absolutely know contains a Dolby Digital audio.  I inserted Shaolin Soccer DVD, went straight to a scene in the middle, and bingo!  The center and surround right and left speaker lights lit up!  So there is the 5.1 surround sound.  It will light up when it detects that kind of sound from the source.  Otherwise it will probably give you a sort of "fake" 5-channel sound that it creates from a 2-channel source.
Now the question becomes, are your connections getting the 5-channel sound to the amp correctly?  I just confirmed that my DVD, connected with a Coaxial cable to the Yamaha, does get 5.1 surround sound, if the sound is encoded in the DVD.  I have not tested this yet with video games or Blu-Rays; I will post again if and when I confirm that this works on a PS3.
