    I've got a Yamaha HTR-5890, first receiver I've owned so I'm not familiar with the different output types it has listed in the manual.

    Also, I should mention that I do not have a Subwoofer yet (my SVS is arriving Tuesday!), so I currently have a 5.0 system.

    There's a long list of the ones that apply to me...either they don't mention 5.1 or 5.1 is mentioned. The others explicity state 6.1 or 7.1 in the description in the manual.

    THX:
    THX Surr + EX

    THX:
    dts ES + THX

    DOLBY DIGITAL:
    SUR Standard

    DOLBY DIGITAL:
    SUR Enchanced

    DTS:
    SUR Standard

    DTS:
    SUR Enchanced

    DTS 96/24
    SUR Standard

    I'm watching Phantom Menace now, but I can't seem to ge
    THX Surr + EX, THX: dts ES + THX, DTS SUR Enchanced, or DTS 96/24 to come up. I can't get the DTS light to light up on my receiver at all.

    Are these buried in a menu somewhere or did I hook something up incorrectly? Is it because I dont have anything connected to the LFE output yet? I *do* have my DVD player connected using Digital coax cable.

    EX/ES Dolby ES is what I'm using right now.

    Thanks!

    That would make it difficult to get DTS for sure...

    For grins you can set your DVD player to output PCM (The way normally wrong setting) and then use DTS Neo:6 on it.

    The correct setting for your DVD player is Bitstream and not PCM as I am sure you already have it set to.


    I use that AVR a lot these day, I like it a lot. Give us some impressions of it please.

    I should also add... EX and ES modes apply to 6.1/7.1 set ups.
