    i'm a little confused in the setup menu for my DVD player. On the options menu (#3) i believe. I select Surround mode as on, but it has 2 choices, D-PCM and Dolby Digital as decoding.

    What is D-PCM? (is it DTS)
    Should i leave it set at D-PCM or Dolby Digital?
    If i set it at D-PCM, will it "adjust" for dolby digital if the DVD is encoded in just Dolby Digital?

    I've had this DVD player for about a year, but just got the receiver for surround sound and the manual for the Sony DVD player doesn't explain how to set it up very well or for different applications.

    Thanks

    Rob, D-PCM is Pulse Code Modulation. You use it if you're using a digital connection to a head unit that doesn't do DD, only PCM or if you wanted to export PCM out to an audio recorder. Best wishes![​IMG]

    If you have a receiver with dolby digital, then set your player to dolby digital.
