    Did a search on this and came up with zilch.

    I just got finished watching "Jason Goes To Hell" unrated in DTS.

    At one point I decided to check the bitrate and when I did it said Rate: OPEN. Does anybody know what that means????

    I did both the rated & unrated versions and came up with the same result on the DTS rate: OPEN

    I checked the DD just for the heck of it and got a 448kbs rate.

    If anyone has got an answer to explain this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I would also like to know what Open means too. I've noticed that's what my DTS LDs read for their bitrate.

    Yah...I knew what the bitrate was (although I've also read 14xx), but I was wondering why it didn't read as 1235 on my reciever. AC3 LDs always display the 384kbps bitrate...but all I get is "Open" for DTS LDs.

    In the article I linked to, it states that the total available bandwidth is 1411kbps, and the DTS track uses 1235kbps of it. I've never seen a receiver that reads the bitrate. I'll have to look into getting one.

    In case Joe was still wondering: the bitrate of the DTS track on the DVD is 754kb/s. I checked it myself a few hours ago, and my player displayed the bitrate without a problem.
