    There are ways to do it, you may have to call the company and ask them specifically about the particular AVR though.


    I know people doing dolby head phones off of their PC's and they can do it.

    I thought the headphone connection is analog as oppose to digital. Therefore even though you have the receiver set for DTS, the headphone connection default to stereo.

    I've never tried this with dolby headphone but I have a yamaha reciever and the "silent cinema" option will take a DTS signal and simulate the 5.1 surround with amazing accuracy.
