    Other than Universal, Disney was one of the bigest dts supporters last year (they even provided it on their direct to DVD movies). I have noticed that dts has been missing on their more recent titles and even major titles such as Monsters Inc. does not have it listed.

    Snow Dogs had dts surround but it was a cropped open-matte presentation.

    Pulp Fiction - Collector's Edition Series & Jackie Brown - Collector's Edition Series will have the dts surround option according to the press information.

    And I'm sure that dts audio might be included with the release of Lilo and Stitch.

    Well, The Royal Tenenbaums has DTS, but Amelie did not, which is disappointing considering the rest of the world does.

    Also, none of the Pixar films had DTS, possibly because of their connection with THX/Lucasfilm.

    According to Amazon.de the upcoming Special Edition of A Bug`s Life (Code 2) will have German DTS. I do hope this is true!

    The lack of DTS tracks on Pixar DVDs probably has more to do with lack of audio space on the DVD than anything else.

    I'm sure it's just a space issue. As the discs get crammed with trailers and games, there isn't a lot of room left for DTS audio.

    Germany is indeed getting dts on the Monster's Inc. dvd but the fact that the track is German is realy bad.
    I would have loved to have Monster's Inc in dts just like many others of you.
    Buena Vista isn't supporting dts to much on their dvd's which is bad because usually they have good titles.
    But I think titles like Bad Company , Lilo & Stitch , Signs and Reign Of Fire will have dts , at least I hope so [​IMG]

    As long as the rumored re-release of Crimson Tide has DTS, I'll be a happy camper.
