    When I run the sound setup in control panel I can get DTS to work, but playing a BR disc on Power DVD I get 2 channel audio ? any suggestion how I can change the settings ?

    Cheers

    What version of Power DVD do you have as that does make a difference.

    You need to go into setup when you are NOT playing anything and select the SPDIF option in PDVD setup menu.

    Adding to tinners post, make sure your sound card/mobo drivers are defaulting to spdif and your sound option in control panel is also set to spdif. :)

    If it's the one that came with your drive then I *think* that one does only do channel audio and you need to upgrade to the full version of PowerDVD to get what you want.
