    Go into the dvd player's setup menus, and set the audio output to "Bitstream", not PCM. If you're using an input (digital coax) that wasn't factory set for dvd player, you may need to go into the receiver's setup menus, to enable and assign the digital input, to the dvd player. If suggestion above doesn't help, you'll probably need to do this. It's not hard. Your manual will walk you through it.

    The wording on your player may be "Raw" or "ON", for Dolby Digital and DTS. Most dvd players ship from their factory, with digital output turned off, because most homes don't have surround equipment.

    You may also need to set your receiver on "Digital Auto", so when you put in a movie, the receiver automatically chooses the DD soundtrack. For DTS soundtrack, you'll need to manually choose that, from the movie's language or setup menus.
    Good luck! Let us know how it goes? :eek:)
