    i have burned a cd with some DTS tracks on but when i put the cd in the xbox all i get is static.

    i used Burrrn to copy the cue file etc.

    can the 360 play audio DTS and if it can what am i doing wrong ?

    any help much appreciated

    Hi. I know this might be a daft question, but, have you gone into the settings & enabled DTS? Another thing maybe because you can't record a DTS soundtrack. All you'll get is white noise.

    I believe for a dts audio cd to work, the cd player has to pass the cd's contents entirely untouched to the amp, the 360 player does not do this, it has to remix the audio to add in interface sound effects etc, so it will not be being passed as an untouched dts stream, rather a dts stream re-encoded into either a dolby or stereo stream I'm afraid.

    I used to play dts audio cd's on my original Xbox using XBMC and they played back with no problems whatsoever. How I miss those days...

    Hm, I hadn't even considered that might be a way to play them.. I've only got one, though I may consider trying that somepoint, I haven't even turned on my original xbox in two years..
