    My receiver will not let me make any adjustments to my rear speakers with DTS Source material such as Blu-rays. If it's Dolby source material I can adjust them just fine. Why is this? I can't find any information anywhere about it?

    What receiver is it? What adjustments do you want to make? Usually you would set the levels of each speaker in a global setting which would then be in effect for all audio.

    Sometimes during a movie movie i like to adjust the level of the rear speakers. For example, on Master and Commander i would turn my rear speaker level down a little because the rear audio is so strong. With DTS blu rays i can't make adjustments on the fly like that. It wont let me adjust rear levels. I know most people set the levels and leave them alone. I'm just wondering why it won't let me do it. Thanks

    You should be able to adjust speaker levels regardless of the audio codec. The audio track would not disable the speaker level facility.

    I had to turn audio down mix off on my Blu-ray player player to get the audio to work through my receiver correctly.

    Having audio downmix "On" will not give surround sound - only stereo!

    My Blu-ray players stock settings had it on. I finally figured out that was the problem and turned it off.
