I have my PS 2 hooked up to a Yamaha DD/DTS receiver (795A if I remember correctly) with an AR Toslink cable. When I play DD or DTS encoded DVDs, the receiver indicates that the source material is only Pro Logic.
Do I have a defective cable or am I missing something on the hookup?
I have a regular DVD player hooked up with a digital optical cable and the DD/DTS functions work fine.

I believe you need to go into the PS2 setup menu and make sure you select DD output. Try turning unit on without a disc and then the screen with browser or setup choice comes up. Go into setup and scroll through selections.
I think this is the problem.

I'm also having this problem...
The menu option for Optical is set to "ON" (otherwise I would have no sound) but I can't seem to get it to play any Dolby Digital or DTS. Is there another setting I'm missing somewhere?

Make sure you select the DD or DTS track from the DVD's audio menu. DTS is almost never the default soundtrack. I have the Yam HTR-5250 and used the PS2 as my primary DVD player for about 6 months with no troubles. I like my Pioneer DV333 much better...
