    Hi,

    Currently, I am using my PS2 as my primary dvd player for my home theatre system. I prefer to watch my movies in DTS format, if its available. Now, will the XBOX decode DTS DVDs through my system since there is no DTS logo on the box.

    Just curious,

    X Box is DTS compatable.

    It'll pass DTS. You'll need an external decoder.

    The PS2 should also be passing DTS, Bruce. I've been playing DTS audio recordings using mine.

    Hi to Portland! (My home town.)

    Bob,

    I've been running DTS dvds with my PS2 with ease. I was curious, if the xbox can do it as well b/c I might get one when the price drops.

    thnx,

    bruce

    I expect X Box will have another price drop somewhere around 2k6 when X Box II is released. How much do you expect to pay for the most powerful game console available? @ $199 they're all but giving it away.
