I've looked through the owners manual and read most of this thread, but can't find a way to output dts films via coax or fiber optic in 5.1 DD. Have my receiver's finally become antique's? Or is there some setting I missed that will output DTS in 5.1DD? This problem is only with DTS/true hd BR's. Film's that have the "old" 5.1 Dolby digital the audio works as it should.

If you go into Initial Setup - Audio Out and change DTS Out to DTS -> PCM you should get a PCM Digital signal that your receiver should accept. Your receiver does not decode DTS but it should understand PCM. This will not give you the full high definition audio, but rather the traditional DVD resolution. Give it a try.

I was just on the Pioneer website and firmware version 3.81 is there. No idea what it fixes. I have not downloaded it yet since this is now a backup unit for me.

Yeah me too. It's in the bedroom now.

I am still using mine as my main bluray player. My sister got a new Panasonic. Many awesome features but I still like my picture better. Yeah it is slow as molasses starting up but after that - it is a fine machine.
I look at the hardware in the new product and it is so cheap compared to how mine is built.
Anyway my 2 cents. hehe

Sold mine for a loss of about $400. Just to slow.

As for your "locks up" jmhenrie, are you running the latest 3.81 firmware in the player?

Only time I had lock ups was when the firmware was not up to date or I rented scratched discs from Netflix. The 95FD seams to be very sensitive to scratches.

Firmware should help with disc problems but I don't think Pioneer is supporting this model any more. I paid full list price ($995) for my 95 back when it first came out and it still functions perfectly; however, I now have an Oppo BDP83 SE which is a really great player, even tho it's now two models "old." I would sell my mint 95 for $150 if anyone is interested. I still have original box, manual, power cable and remote. Thanks!

Just picked up one of these off Ebay dirt cheap, I was looking to put it in the main system to replace my BDP 320 and move it upstairs. Hooked it up went through the settings and the PQ was a bit deeper in color than the 320 (using the Hobbit as test disk), and the 320 did a very good job. I really like the way it blends in with the rest of my Elite gear (my preference) the 320 will match up with the VSX521-K in the bedroom and move my first entry player BDP 120 into my daughters room, the old hand me down trade (never throw it out if it still works).

The only negative is the 320 would stream DTS MA (7.1) via PCM and the 95 does not or I have yet to figure it out as the Hobbit disk is DTS MA HD 7.1 and only plays at 5.1 DTS PLII or DTS NEO 6. If you were wondering I have Elite VSX 81Tx, supports 7.1 but not DD HD or DTS MA HD, in PCM mode it will play all 7 channels.
