I have had it for a while but its always been ghetto rigged. Now I have everythign set up correctly, all the audio cables where they should go, an AV switch and everything. The only problem is that I can't get the reciver to use fiber optics(DTS) when I plug the video cable into the DvD slots. Now if I plug them into Video 1 slots and the fiber optics cable it works fine.

    Right now it says Pro logic and I can't seem to make it switch to DTS mode.

    Ok the sound is going threw Video 2, I guess thats where the optics cable routes threw. But I need it to work with DvD slots.

    A lot of DVD players require you to explicitly set the type of audio output in a set-up menu. So you'd have to tell the DVD player to output in DTS before it would. Have you checked this?

    Or are you saying that you can get DTS audio just fine when the DVD player's video cables are plugged into the Video1 jack on the receiver, but not when the video cables are plugged into the DVD jack on the receiver? If that's the case, you got me. Perhaps the receiver can't handle signals going into separate inputs at the same time?

    Have you tried reading the manual? It's kinda hard to tell you what to do when we have no idea what sort of receiver you have. And maybe you should expand upon what you mean by "ghetto rigged".

    Correct. I lost the manual years ago.

    I looked it up online and it said if I push input I can change it to DTS but the only inputs I can change to DTS is video 2 for some reason. DVD inputs run on coxial.
