First, let me apologize about the length of this post, but I couldn't describe my problem in any other way. I have a question about selecting the proper listening mode for a dvd. I have a Kenwood VR-507 that normally does a good job selecting the automatic surround mode for a dvd. But I recently bought Better Off Dead and was surprised at how bad it sounded, even for a dvd that says on the box: Dolby Digital: English Stereo. I thought it was the dvd until I read a review of the movie that said be sure to listen to it in Pro Logic II. I went back to the movie and sure enough, it sounded much better in that mode. I had been listening to it in my receiver's Dolby Digital mode. Now here is my question: Can someone help me to understand which mode goes with which box description? I have read the faq on Dolby Digital, and I thought I understood it pretty well, but here is what I face: Better Off Dead: Dolby Digital-English Stereo Henry V (w/Kenneth Branagh) - English: Stereo Surround Real Genius - English (Dolby Surround) The Man from Snowy River - English Stereo Surround Now, it appears from this that as long as the box says "Surround" (assuming, of course that the box is correct, which I know is not always true), then I should use the Dolby Digital selection on my receiver. And if the box says simply "Stereo," then I should use Pro Logic II Movie. Is this correct? Also, adding to my confusion is the listing for these movies on DVD Profiler: Better Off Dead: Stereo Henry V: Stereo Real Genius: Dolby Surround (3 Channels) The Man from Snowy River: Pro-logic (4 Channels) Should I be watching The Man from Snowy River in a Pro-Logic mode? It sounded ok when I watched it in Dolby Digital mode, but maybe it could have been better. I realize that these entries are made by users and could be incorrect. I'm sorry if this seems like a dumb question. I'm sure I must be missing something obvious, but I would like to avoid what happened with Better Off Dead in the future. Thanks.
