    Hello all,
    I'd just joined and would like to say hi to you all. HI[​IMG].
    I am having some problems with my receiver and would like some help. I have a Onkyo 575x, about 9 months old, that for some reason seems to skip when-ever I run a DTS movie. I should clarify that only the soundtrack skips, not the video. My current system is as follows:
    Onkyo 575x
    Toshiba DVD 2710
    Paradigm Mon. 7's v2 mains
    Paradigm CC370 center
    Paradigm ADP170 rears
    Paradigm PS-1000 sub v3
    Panamax DBS500
    32" television (hoping to upgrade to HDTV)
    I have tried different DVD players but to no avail. I get the same response.[​IMG]
    Thanks in advance.
    Chris

    If you have main speakers set to 'small' and have Cinema Re-EQ turned on, some (most?) dts soundtracks will have dropouts. Change either option and you're good to go. Onkyo's stance is that Cinema Re-EQ is a Dolby function, not intended for dts material.

    yep, I concur that Cinema re-eq is the culprit.

    Not much to add to the thread other than to say that my 575x was having frequent dropouts on DTS material so I did a HTF search and turned up this thread. I checked last night and behold, the "Cinema Re-Eq" was indeed engaged. Setting it to "Off" cures the problem.

    I didn't intentionally have it set to "On". It must have gotten switched somehow when I was rearranging equipment the other day. HTF to the rescue!
