    Is there a trick to using DTS or am I just doing something stupid again [​IMG] When I play a DTS DVD and set it up for DTS mode I get no sound. Switch back to DPL an everything works fine. The sound track is DTS compatible and I select the sound setup on the movie track and switch to DTS on the receiver. Not sure if there is some set up on the receiver I'm missing or not. I have it set up for 5.1 sound.

    Check the setup on the DVD player. On most of them, you have to enable DTS output -- not just on the disc's menu but in the player's basic settings.

    I had the same problem a few weeks ago and it ended up that the DTS out option on my DVD player was turned off. Once I switched it on in the player's menu, everything was fine.

    When you use DPL and it works, are you using a digital or analog interconnect? Near the bottom right of the 3802's display, does it say "ANALOG" or "DIGITAL"?

    All of these MUST happen for you to hear DTS:

    1) Receiver set to Auto detect or forced to DTS

    2) DVD players will output DD by default. 99.9% of the time, DTS must be ENABLED in your DVD player's digital audio setup menu.

    3) Select DTS track on the DVD itself.

    ****Moderators - Please, PLEASE, PLEASE, put this in a FAQ or Archive somewhere (if it isn't already). Thanks.

    Yea!! Another good topic for the newbie board. I had to learn the hard way myself. Not only DTS, but sometimes I have to play back and forth between 16x9 and 4x3 in the DVD player setup to get the correct picture for widescreen for some widescreen DVD's.

    4x3 61". It's really strange, but on some DVD's produced in widescreen show up in letter box or full screen when I select 16x9 on my DVD player. I have to select 4x3 on some to get a widescreen picture.
