    I want to hook my PS2 through Optical IN 1 on the back of my Denon AVR-1803 reveiver. I have all my settings correct on the PS2, but nothing ever switches to DD as it should. Any ideas? Thanks

    Depends on what exactly you're trying to accomplish. If you're thinking you'll get DD out of PS2 games you will not, unfortunately. I think there are one or two games with DTS hacked in (some EA titles) but almost all PS2 games are 2channel stereo; in other words non-DD.

    If you're trying to get DD out of movie DVDs and can't get DD, that's a different matter.

    There were a handful of games (and I mean that literaly) that had DD only in the cut scenes. Very few games have DTS interactive. What I know of:
    GTA: Vice City
    NHL 2002
    SSX3
