    Hi, I just bought a Denon avr-1705 surround reciever and after plugging it all in, I'm having some difficulties getting the reciever to recognize the Dolby Digital signal from the DVD player. Playing a DTS soundtrack works fine, so I don't think I have messed up the cables or some such thing. I have looked through all the options on the DVD player and read everything about the subject in the manual. I do get sound on DD soundtracks, but the reciever just uses pro logic IIx.
    I don't know if this makes any difference, but the reciever and player are connected through a coax on the spdif.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Hi

    Dolby PLIIx can be applied to DD soundtracks so it's more than likely doing this if you have the Surround Back speakers on. You can check what signal the Amp is receiving by pressing the STATUS button on the front panel. Each time you press it you'll cycle through the info. The small Dolby Digital light in the main display will also be lit if it's a DD source.

    Thanks for the fast reply.
    It says PCM: 48khz, I assume that is what is currently being fed to it?
    I guess it could be my dvd player then, since the Dolby light isn't on at any point, even though I have looked through every setting on the player. I will have to try it out on another player when I get the chance

    Make sure your DVD player is set to output BITSTREAM for Dolby as well as DTS. Also check that the Amp input mode is set to AUTO so it automatically locks onto any incoming signal.
