    Do all DTS versions of dvds always contain a DD audio track?

    All contain a DD track of some sort, due to DD being the offical sound format for DVD. Many older DTS only discs only contained a DD 2.0 track, but with the advent of half bit rate DTS, most of the time you get 5.1 DTS and DD.

    All DVDs must contain either a DD track or a PCM audio track.

    Greg,

    Is this the case ? I wanted to get the Jaws DTS version for when I upgrade my amp (currently only DD) but all the reviews and Amazon etc say only DTS track on the disk ? Don't have currently and did not want to restrict to just DD.

    Also does this also apply to other Universal titles eg JP ?

    Thanks

    Malcolm

    I have the Jaws DTS disc, and it does indeed have a dolby track as well. I always thought of it as Pro logic, but I suppose it is DD2.0

    I believe the 'spec' states that a DD or PCM tracks must be on a DVD. DTS was considered an alternative audio track at the time.

    Not sure if it has ever been amended

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but "The Eagles: HFO" concert DVD has only a PCM and DTS track on the disc. No DD track is included, so maybe a DD track doesn't have to be included.

    Peace,

    Dave, a DD OR PCM track must be included, a DD track is NOT required.
