    Well, here goes my first posting here.
    And yep, as usual it's a problem of some kind.

    After reading a few posts here about the difference between DD & DTS I thought I'd take a look as it's never really bothered me before.

    Anyway, I put on Gladiator and chose DTS but it seems to revert back to DD once the film starts.

    My amp (Sony STR-DB930) shows DD & DTS on the front. But my DVD player (Sony DVP-S315) only shows DD.
    Is this the problem? Will my DVD player not play DTS?

    They are connected by an optical cable if that makes any difference.

    Try putting the DVD Player back to DTS after the film starts.

    Optical is the best transfer cable.

    It wont let me change the audio channels once the film has started.

    I think it's because the DVD players does not support DTS.

    I just need someone to confirm this.

    Hi Desmo
    I also own the dvp-315, unfortuantly it is not dts compatible.
    I upgraded to the 335 to get dts and multi region.

    Some people think that optical must be better that coaxial because they are comparing to Cat 5 Vs fibre. Digital coaxial cable is NOT Cat 5 and TOSLink cable isn't computer fibre cable either. People who buy both so that they can choose, mostly use coaxial.

    That's the answer I was after.

    On the optical V coax thing. I've tried both off & on for about 6 months now. Both cables cost the same £29.99 For me anyway, there is a definite edge in detail using optical. Especially with dialogue & music. Also, the optical cable can't 'colour' the sound as a coax can, & there's no chance of interference from RF. As I said, this is my personal pref, but the only way is to do what I've done...try them for yourself!
