    I finally got around to hooking up my 3802. Works great, except when I try to play DTS tracks, then it doesn't work at all. It doesn't detect the DTS stream. It plays nada. The front panel reads: (on led) (auto led) STEREO DVD [analog]. No DTS LED. It doesn't even say it's a digital stream. I've also tried changing the input from "auto" to "DTS". No dice, once again. Is there something I'm missing, or is this a legit problem?

    Check the settings on your DVD player and verify that the DTS output is set to bitstream. This is the most common problem in trying to play DTS dics. I had done it when I first hooked up my DVD player.

    Colin,

    Keep the receiver set to Auto, but the main reason that its not working is that you have the DVD input set to STEREO. Turn the knob to Dobly PII and when the receiver detects a DTS signal it will go into DTS mode.

    Keep your receiver on AUTO mode and make sure the DTS bitstream output is turned ON in your DVD player's setup menu.

    Again, that's the most common error.

    Take a look here for starters.
    It is a good idea to check the Primer, just in case your question might have already been answered. There's a lot of good info there.

    Thank you. The problem was with the DTS output on my DVD player not being set on "bitstream".
