I finally figured out this PS4 not allowing my AVR to play DTS-HD. It's not a linear setting on the setting menu at all. I tried all thee and none would allow my Denon X4000 to show DTS-HD. You have to be in the DTS-HD able movie and hit options and change the audio format to bitstream direct. Fixed! You have to be HDMI connected as well. Bam!

Sony needs to add more audio options in the PS4 settings menu.

BF4 DTS (Standard or Master Audio?)

Hey guys, read thru all the posts in hopes of someone mentioning the DTS soundtrack on BF4. Game disc cases don't even mention it. Is it the standard or HD Master Audio?

Cycling between Bitstream DTS and LPCM on the PS4 I get better sound quality in PCM. That leads me to believe it's only the standard DTS. In Bitstream my new Denon only lights up "DTS surround" when gaming or watching a bluray that I know is Master Audio HD encoded.

Can anyone confirm if the display on their AVR says DTS-MA for BF4?

As for no center channel action I like it. In BF4 it's used for dialog only so that way I get to adjust the vol. (Like way down).

When setting the PS4 output to DD or DTS you only get legacy audio. You need to set it to PCM output to get the higher quality audio.

What makes you think bf4 itself is using any sort of DTS? Games have no need for it.

My Denon receiver displays "DTS Surround" during BF4 with PS4 set to DTS Bitstream in the audio settings and M PCM when set to LPCM audio settings.

If BF4 is not encoded with DTS why would the Denon display DTS?
It's telling me the codec it's decoding. Problem is my Denon isn't specific enough (standard or DTS Master Audio).

Because when the PS4 is set to bitstream DD or DTS it is re-encoding everything to one of those legacy formats. You need to have the PS4 set to PCM output to get the best audio quality from the games.

I know my six year old Denon 3808 tells me the format being streamed. Whether PCM, DD, D+, Dolby True HD, DTS, DTS-HD HR, and DTS-HD MA. My Denon displays it.

Looking for some help...

I have an Onkyo receiver, that is connected to my ps4 with HDMI, or it was. When connected I can get audio but no picture. Other posts on here suggested changing the audio output to to bitstream DTS
, which I have tried, along withDolby, and both still give audio through the receiver but no picture.

So what should I be trying/ doing next?

BTW. I do get a picture in safe mode for what that's worth.

Thanks.
