Dolby Digital Plus or DTS for HD DVD?

Hi Guys,

I received Sleepy Hollow on HD DVD and it's giving me the option of either Dolby Digital Plus or DTS.
My sound system is a Digitheatre DTS.

What do I choose in the options because no matter what option I choose, my Digitheatre automatically puts itself on DTS.

Is it playing the DTS track or the DD+ track?
Is it downgrading the DD+ to DTS?

Thanks for all the help.

Best wishes

some players will reencode for a DTS output. The player will player whatever track you select. DD+ will be reencoded to DTS, and DTS will output just as DTS.

I have the HD DVD drive fior the x box 360.:thumbsup:

Does re-encoded DD+ to DTS sound better than regular DTS?

I was just wondering how to connect the HD DVD drive for the x box 360 to a newer sound system that can play all the newer sound formats.
I have an elite 360 that does have a HDMI connection but the socket is covered by the connection for the optical/component lead. Any ideas?

Thanks guys

the best you will get from the 360 hddvd add on is rencoded dts at 1.5mb even if you are using hdmi. To get the dts 1.5 mb go to the audio settings menu on the 360, you can only bring this menu up whne playing a movie, i think you press start on the controller to bring it up, select the audio option and select dts. The 360 will then decode the hd audio be it dd+ or true hd and send it out as dts 1.5mb to your amp, if you dolnt change it it will just send the hd audio as standard dolby digital.
