I currently purchased a RX8000 receiver to compliment my XV501 DVD player and am having trouble with the DTS and Dolby Digital and was hoping someone could help. I reset the factory settings so that the first optical was now for DVD. The optical cable is correctly installed, but the receiver will only produce sound when the auto/PCM setting is selected. If I play a DTS DVD and select DTS on the DVD menu and DTS on the receiver, I get no sound. If I select dobly digital on the receiver and on the movie menu, I get no sound. The only way I get sound is to select dolby digital on the movie menu and auto/PCM on the receiver. It plays full digital surround, but I would like to make use of the DTS setting and was hoping someone might could key me in on what I am doing wrong. I have read the book 3 times, everything is connected properly, but there is some little something keeping me away from the DTS. Thanks for any help.

have you checked the setup menu on you dvd player? i had a similar problem with the DTS feature on my jvc 523 dvd player. i had to change a setting for the digital output to stream/pcm, in the setup menu of the dvd player, to be able to hear DTS audio. i also own the rx8000vbk jvc and am very pleased with it.

Thanks to Tightwad, my troubles have been resolved and for the first time in 2 weeks I have been able to finally experience true dolby digital. I watched Charlie's Angels and it was GREAT! I am now going to have to get a second job to support my DVD rentals!

Were you able to get DTS to play flawlessly?
I had a JVC 501 that needed a firmware upgrade just to play DTS and then shortly after that the optic's died. Just wondering if they ever fixed this.

Mine is playing DTS fine, you just have to go in and change the setting on the PCM to stream and not PCM only.
