    I just set up my system and when I play a DVD that has DTS ES Discrete 6.1(LOTR, Gladiator, etc.) the receiver recognizes the signal but no sound is output. All other modes seem to work except for this one, which happens to be the best. My DVD player has the DTS logo on it but could that be the problem? Thanks.

    Have you enabled bitstream for DTS on the dvd player setup?

    Yes, I followed the DVD Player's instructions to enable Digital/DTS output.

    Are you able to play standard (5.1) DTS tracks?

    Yes, standard DTS 5.1 DVD's work and I can also get DTS-ES 6.1 Matrixed. The only mode that doesn't work is DTS-ES 6.1 Discrete.

    If you are able to play standard DTS tracks, then the problem is not your player. There must be some setting in the receiver that needs to be adjusted. Since I'm not familiar with the Denons, I'll have to defer to those who are.

    Well there isn't much of a setting there since DTS ES Discrete completely relies on embeded flags,which according to the author is being reckognised by the receiver.
    Since it "plays" everything else this must be a malfunction on the receiver.I would swap it if it's feasible.

    In my Onkyo SR600, I can set the EX/ES flags to "on" as opposed to "auto". This way, DD5.1, DD-EX, DTS 5.1 & DTS-ES Matrixed/Discrete all get processed as 6.1. There has to be a similar setting on the Denon 2803.

    Yes, there is but it won't make any difference.
    Also if you read the first post he said that the receiver"reckognized" the bitstream,but no sound.

    Try a processor reset first. It clears up a lot of little problems.

    On my 2802 I have to turn the back surround speaker on. Otherwise the 6.1 signal gets played as 5.1 but I don't know if this applies to the 2803.
