    I have a Toshiba SD-1700. I had been using the RCA outputs for sound (analog)for my T.V. upstairs, but for some reason it stopped working. I decided to try it on my setup in the basement using a coaxial cable. I hooked it up to my Denon 1802 (DD and DTS). To my amazement, only DTS would work. Dolby Digital didn't make a sound.

    I did go into the set up to switch from DTS to DD.

    I have never experienced this problem before with any DVD player.

    My question is could I have a faulty DVD player. It's about a year old.

    Any feedback would be great!

    Yes, I've tried a few but the one that I'm watching is Jurassic Park III that has DD and DTS .

    On the Playstation 2, you can actually turn off the Dolby output but let it output DTS.

    That's pretty funny that you bring that up Jesse. Just last week I got an optical cable for my PS2 to listen to Grand Theft Auto Vice City in DTS. Well when I hooked it all up....no DTS. It took me about an hour to figure that one out. It works now in DTS and it's pretty cool.

    This problem I have now has me stumped. I'm still trying to find out why it's doing this.
