    I cannot play a dvd in the DTS mode with my new Panasonic CP72...

    The receiver (Denon 2802) doesn't get a DTS signal from the Panny. I reconnect my ailing Sony DVD-S360 and the DTS works fine.

    I believe I have the CP72 configured properly...is there a known problem with these units? It also doesn't seem to pick up the Dolby Digital signal at times either. The Sony recognizes Dolby Digital right away...

    Thanks,

    Sean in Norcal

    The only advice I have is to make sure that you go into the menu, and set it up with DTS as bitstream instead of PCM. I believe that the default setting on most players is PCM for some reason.

    Try that out, and see if it works.

    By default the player is set to "PCM, make sure to change it to " bitstream". I guess that is exactly what the first post says, oh well good luck.


    On this same note. I also cannot get the test to on the DVD player (RP82), to play out in all five channels? I only get front right and front left. When watching a movie everything seems fine, but not when in the Players setup screens? Any ideas?

    Got it!

    DTS needed to be set to Bitstream and it was defaulted to PCM. I guess I didn't read the instructions well enough.

    I noticed the same deal with the 5-channel test feature, I believe it only works when coax cables are connected, not when optical is present.

    Thanks guys.

    Should the player be set to 2-channel or multi-channel sound when using the digital out into a DD/DTS receiver for sound?

    I wanted to say that this thread saved me a lot of grief a couple days ago. I hooked up my new cp72 and when I did the setup I went in and changed DTS to bitstream. Thanks to what I had read here.

    I also used the optical digital out and when I tried to do the sound test all I got was stereo. But when I put in a THX certified disk and did the sound check there I had great 5.1 sound.

    I think the sound test from the DVD player setup menu is for it's own analog outs, glad everything worked good.
