    The DTS when chosen does not output any stereo sound. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    What system components are you using? Movie or DTS CD?

    It may be a menu item you have to choose in your source component, or choose it on the disc menu.

    Just guesses, let us know what disc, too...

    I don't quite understand your question. DTS is not a stereo format. Are you getting sound from all your other speakers, but not the front Left and Right ones? Please supply more details and someone here can probably help you out.

    The system is a an H/K 520 with a Pioneer DV414. I do not get any sound from any of the 5.1 speakers. This happens with Pearl Harbor and Fast and the Furious. I choose the DTS track on the DVDs and still nothing comes out.

    Eric,you will need a digital coaxial or optical cable from your DVD player to your receiver or your CD player (if you have the available outputs) to hear DTS in DVD's or if you have DTS encoded cd's.

    I have an optical cable hooked up now, which is allowing me to play DD. Is it better to use digital coaxial. By the way I also tried the DTS on Shrek, without any luck.

    This really is my problem, my brother posted the initial message, but now my membership has been confirmed. Thanks for the help, I hope I do not have to return my HK520!

    OK

    I was hoping I was one of the 1 percent, but I am one of the 99 percent. I thought I chose to turn it on last night, but I did not. Thanks Michael, Shrek is now playing in DTS mode. Do you hear that...I am pounding my head against the wall as I type!

    You're much better off being in the 99%, Kurtis, 'cause the fix is so much easier! [​IMG] Glad it worked.

    Don't beat yourself up over it. What *is* retarded is the fact that most players don't have DTS output enabled by default!!

    Thanks guys,

    I just played track 22 (the opening scenes of the attack) on Pearl Harbor in DTS and it sounded pretty awesome.

    Great Receiver. I Am Happy Everything Worked Out Well. I Have This Model As Well and Have Had No Problems To Speak Off. Doesen't It Look Great When All The Lights Are Out.

    It does look pretty sweet at night. If it weren't for my brother finding this receiver I still would be using my Pioneer VSX D607S. I have to say the stated 100 watts of Pioneer is no match for the 70 watts of H/K. Plus I have just one 'mote' to worry about, which includes my fiber optic tv.
