Received my RX-V2500 (Yamaha) - Question

I am pretty new to the realm of home theater. I have finally bought and pieced everything together for my 5.1 setup. My new receiver (Yamaha RX-V2500) has probably DOZENS of settings for surround sound...dolby dts, dolby digital, dolby prologic, dolby prologic II, dolby prologic IIx...etc.... My questions is fairly simple.....what setting do I use to listen to DVDs or games? Do I look to see what the DVD was recorded in and then use that setting on my receiver?

Or does the receiver auto-detect what mode?

It will auto detect modes, but experimentation with modes that are not auto-detected will be in order too. If the DVD has DTS you should select it from the title disc menu.

I just bought the RX-v2500, and yes it will auto-detect the proper mode.

Auto Detect is important to find for convenience sake. So learn how to do that. In many cases, DVDs (maybe games I don't know) will give you a choice of DD5.1 (Digital Dolby 5.1) or DTS. They are both 5 channel plus sub-woofer soundtracks, and most of us here lean toward DTS as the preference. The others are synthesis of two channels to more channels. I use PLiix for stereo sources, play with them and see what you like.

Some dvd titles will even give you 2 channel by default and you must select DD 5.1 from the title disc menu. Some DVD's don't even have 5.1 though in all honesty.
