Have an old Sony DVP S300, which doesn't decode the DTS signal, but can the DD signal (even though it's not really decoding it, as it's sending the signal via digital out). The newer Denon 2802 receiver does decode DTS. So, if I'm running digital out of the DVD player and into the receiver, is the DVD player capable of sending the DTS signal, if not decode it? Or do BOTH components have to have an understanding of the DTS signal, and in this case my DVD player can't pick up and pass to the receiver's decoder?
I've tried with some DVD's to select DTS in in the DVD menu, then manually select DTS on the receiver, but this yields no sound whatsoever. I'm guessing that the DVD player needs a DTS pickup to pass the signal, even though it's not decoding the signal. Any knowledge is appreciated.
