    Did you select Dolby Digital or DTS in your DVD menu? (ie. that start menu of the movie you are trying to watch)

    If you have the DVD player hooked up digitally, and if you have the player setup correctly (many units ship with the DTS output permanently turned off. You have to go into the player's (NOT the disc's) setup menu and make sure DTS is switched on) and the input mode on the Denon is set to AUTO, then yes, the receiver will set itself correctly.

    Many of us prefer DTS because theorectically, it can sound better. (It uses less compression than DD.) But in reality, I often struggle with hearing any clear-cut difference. Bottom line is that both are peachy to my ears...

    How come when I put on DTS .. the talking come from the back? and when I change it to Dolby Digital the talking come from the centre speaker .. So how do I change it to DTS with talking in the centre speaker? ...does this have to do with my DVD player or the receiver?

    I have no idea.. I have never seen DTS make dialog come from the rear ever. Could be an issue with this particular DVD perhaps???
