At this point, all I have is a jvc sa70bk dvd player hooked directly to my tv. Is it possible to achieve sound from a dts dvd in this setup or is it necessary to have a av receiver?
Dolby Digital or PCM audio are required on 525/60 (NTSC) discs, and since both PCM and DTS together don't usually leave enough room for quality video encoding of a full-length movie, essentially every disc with a DTS soundtrack also carries a Dolby Digital soundtrack. This means that all DTS discs will work in all DVD players, but a DTS-compatible player and a DTS decoder are required to play the DTS soundtrack.
