Hi guys,

First Thanks in advance..

I know might not be the right part of the forums, but I think this is where some reciever-HD codecs experts might be able to help me.


I have the Mitsubishi 149 series LCD set with the built in soundbar. It is said that does Dolby and Dolby True. It "currently does not do DTS." When hooked up to my DVD player( set to bitstream), I found this to be true. No sound when DTS was selected. Now is where it gets confusing to me.


So I just purchased a Phillips Blu ray player to take advantge losless audio. While the player does not decode Dolby True, everyone says it" does Dolby True and DTS MA through bit steam via HDMI( which is how it is hooked up to the television(ie, sound projector). anyway. I read that in the menu, if one selects " primary audio" and not' multi out' it sends out Dolby True.


So I can confirm I think it is doing Dolby True as the sound in fantastic. Blows away regular Dolby 5.1


This is what I don't get. It IS playing DTS ma on Both Blu ray disc and regular dts on regular discs.


1. How can that be as the 'reciever' does not do DTS and did not do it with my standard DVD player.

2. It sounds really quite good, but what am I getting? DTS ma?..or the 1.5 core?

HDMI would allow the player to know what audio is and is not supported via EDID. If the player knows DTS is not supported, it could play a different (supported) track.


What you might want to do, is look for a signal info feature on the player to confirm exactly what audio is being sent.

Thanks! But this is where it gets tricky.. As it is a Sound Projector built in to the television( no readable reciever to light up and say Dollby True or DTS MA). Or do you mean on the DVD player?


Thanks much

Your blu-ray player is decoding the DTS-HD MA and sending it to your Mistubishi as PCM.

thanks Texas. So is it still DTS ma. Meaning, am I getting the full bit rate? A core? It still sounds really good, and discrete as far as the right sounds being in the right places, but not as good as the Dolby True.

DTS-HD Master Audio would theoretically be identical to TrueHD. The output from the decoders should be identical assuming the source track was identical (as you would expect.)


If they player decodes DTS only, it could decode the lossly DTS core track and send it via PCM, hopefully multi-channel PCM. 1.5 Mbs is close to lossless in quality according to some listening tests.


Check you signal info, then you will know.
