    I just went and picked up my new Shrek DVD. I went to play it in its DTS mode and I had no sound. It played fine in all of the other 5.1 modes. I have an Onkyo DS 595 and a Panasonic DVD player (which does play DTS tracks). Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    Eric

    Have you ever played a DTS track before? If this is the first time you've tried to play a DTS track you might need to turn DTS "ON" in you DVD player's menu. Seems unlikely that it could be a software issue.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Eric is your player is a Panasonic RP91 or maybe the RP56 you should double check your audio settings for the player.

    DTS defaults to PCM. If you want your receiver to receive the proper codec make sure DTS is set to bitstream on the DVD player.

    You access these menus through the action button on your remote.

    Well, I guess that's why they call us newbies. I went home @ lunch and sure enough, the dts was turned off by default. I turned it on and it played perfect.

    Thanks again for the help!
