No DTS sound

I connected my WD TV live with optical cable to an LG HT503 which has a built in DTS support if i know well. But when i try to play a movie with DTS sound there is no sound at all. The LG shows that it is DTS but that’s all. I can play every other sound format on it… I know i can change the WD’s settings to Stereo and yes there is sound if i chose that one, but i don’t want to use it with stereo

any idea?

Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.

Do you know what type of DTS it is?  For instance DTS Master Audio can not be passed through optical cables.

Why is that exactly? Bitrate too high?

Exactly.   I think the same holds true for Dolby True HD.

The LG may not support 44.1 kHz/16 bit, try 48kHz/24 bit DTS

I tried it with a lot of DTS movie, but without any success. Also i tried my LG system with another WD TV live player but the result was the same…so i guess it’s something with my LG not with my WDtv…
