A friend of mine brought over a DTS audio CD (which I've never heard of until last night) to play on my system, only we can't get it to work. My 5.1 setup consists of an X-box 360 Elite via HDMI to a Pioneer VSX-9040TXH receiver and 5.1 Energy speakers/sub. When I put the cd into the Xbox it played back static. I did some searching and I figure the problem is that the X-Box 360 doesn't support DTS? I thought it wouldn't matter since my receiver is DTS capable.


I'm wondering if there is any way for me to play this DTS cd with my current equipment? Thanks.

I don't own any of your gear but you may try this.


Be sure that there isn't any CD resolution upscaling occuring. I had this problem when I tried to play an old DTS CD of Steely Dan's Gaucho. I fished around the audio menus on my Philips DVD recorder and turned off the 'audio upscaling' and I was back to enjoying Gaucho.


Good luck,

Make certain you are sending bitstream to the AVR.

Any CD player with a digital out will play DTS discs, however the digital input selector on the receiver needs to be set to "auto" or "DTS" otherwise you will hear loud pops or static.

Also make sure that the Xbox sends "raw" or bitstream as opposed to "PCM".

You should be able to go into the 'set-up' menu and 'HDMI Audio' should be set to 'bitstream'. Also you might check for any DTS settings that your X-box 360 has.
