    Hi all!

    I just bought a Denon 2803 and have a DVD that claims to be in both DTS AND Dolby Digital, but I don't seem to be able to hear anything when I switch (manually) to DTS on the Denon.

    Does anyone know the solution here or have a similar problem?

    Thanks.

    Have you set the DVD players digital output to "Bitstream"?

    Also, dts isn't automatically output by the DVD player. You'll have to go through the DVD's menus (usually the language menu) and manually select it.

    You can leave the receiver set to "Auto".

    Assuming the movie actually has a DTS track.

    If I'm not mistaken all DVDs (well new ones anyway) have a DD 5.1 track but not that many have a DTS track.

    Good point. EVERY DVD has a DD track (not necessarily 5.1, it could be 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, 5.1 amongst others) as it is part of the DVD standard.

    Only a few (increasingly common in new releases, and many more abroad) have DTS.

    However, since the DVD mentioned in the original question apparently does have DTS, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks guys.

    Eviljohn2, you're dead right... just hadn't thought of looking on the language menu - not perhaps the most intuitive place to put the DTS option. Everything works fine now, so will look forward to comparing the two sound formats. (Film is "Pirates of the Caribbean". R2, but it does have a DTS soundtrack in addition to DD)
