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.

Check current region code Open the Philips HOME Screen Type on your remote: 8520 This will display all of the current settings for your player. Example: Region_Code: DVD(2) BD(B)Change region code Turn on player with no disk inserted Press "Open/Close" on the remote control until the tray is open Press 8689310 - 0 means all region Press 8689311 - 1 means region 1, Press 8689312 - 2 means region 2, Press 8689313 - 3 means region 3, Press 8689314 - 4 means region 4, Press 8689315 - 5 means region 5, Press 8689316 - 6 means region 6. Now the front Buttons might not work! Go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions
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.
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.
If you get sound on direct mode say from dvd but no sound when you go to dolby make sure you have the right input selected by pressing the digitat input button on the front of the amp,ie if dvd optical out is pluged into amp optical input 1 select this on amp then set audio to prologic2.DVDs through this input will decode to dolby digital/dts.
hope this helps.
have you turned it on from the dvd menu the easist way to tell if you have is there will be little speakers that light up on your amps screen (more than two) when the movie is playing (not The menu) Not all movies are encoded in DTS hopefully this helps
