I thought this place is THE primary focus for DTS CD, SACD, DVD-A, Blu-ray Audio, i.e. surround music formats. I know hardware can overlap for music and movie audio but we are getting more and more threads that aren't directly or specifically related to "Surround AND Music AND Formats", like on the first page alone:

CD format (2)
CD ripping (2)
cable box issues
cable channels no dts
PS3 games dts
speakers
movie audio
general Blu-ray player set up for movie audio
general receiver set up
seller complaints
general surround mode and format set-up/decoding discussions

That's more than 10 out of 50 threads.

We already have 2CH forum for CDs, cable forum, games forum, speaker forum, BD player forum, receiver forum and Audio Theory, Set up and Chat forum.smile.gif

Should this be merged with the existing Audio Theory, Set up and Chat forum? Or renamed "General Surround Formats" or doing something about it by making it clearer the scope of this forum and keeping it the way it used to be?

I'm not trying to be a mod (there isn't one assigned here) but I come for SACDs and surround music talk and like to keep it that way and if others feel the same perhaps something can be done...

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.

I agree that sometimes threads in this forum go off topic. If I see off topic threads as you mentioned I just ignore those threads. I believe it happens in every forum on AVS from time to time. I think sometimes it might be new members that are not sure where to post their thread. If any of the issues you mention bother you that much I would suggest contacting a Mod to delete or move those threads.

I just looked at the first page of this forum and you are right in that there are waaaay too many off topic threads in this forum. I think I'll contact a Mod myself to see if they can clean it up. Thanks for pointing this out smile.gif.

Hi Guys,

The best way to handle these as you see them anywhere on AVS is to click the flag icon under the first post and in the popup comment area, type something like "Should be moved to" followed by the name, or better yet, URL to the forum it's better suited for.

Keep in mind that some discussions fluctuate quite a bit and could fit in more than one area, but we'll do our best to keep it all organized.

Thanks!
