    Xbox Video - How to know quality sound (stereo - DD - DTS) before paying for a movie.


    I am kind of disappointed as I rented a movie in HD today and what a surprise the sound was on stereo!!!! When it all started on xbox 360 I remember that the movie bios informed about the sound.

    I mean I would not rent a movie on HD just for quality of image, I also expect, al lleast, good 5.1 sound. I see that there are some movies in 5.1 and others that are not, the main problem is that you cannot tell until you have rented, or worse, bought the
    movie.

    Is there a way to know it before paying? Because in case of stereo sound I would rather rent the movie on SD.

    Thanks

    :)

    "Digital" Audio via toslink.

    Yeah DTS has a much better sound range. Prefer it on my movies and games over DD 5.1.

    Surround Sound Not Working

    I have other devices connected to my Marrantz, namely chromacast and 3d blue ray player. I jus tried playing a video on youtube through chromecast. It was an iron man 3 trailer, in hd and Dolby sound. When I play this video through chromecast, my AVR shows
    me the sound output options of "DOLBY PLII MOVIE" and "DTS NEO:6 cinema" in addition to "multi Chn stereo". Playing the video on either Dolby or DTS gives me proper surround sound. Then I tried playing the same video on xb1 youtube. This time the sound options
    were "multi Chn in" and "multi Chn stereo". Playing the video in multi Chn outputs sound from only front, center and sub. Surround speakers don't output any sound. I tried selecting bitstream, and select DTS/ Dolby there, but same result. I don't know what
    my xb1 is doing this?

    DTS audio doesn't work on Xbox one S

    Thank you for a fast answer!

    I did everything as you said.

    1) It is a 4k (mkv, m2ts) movie (i've tried many of them) with a several audio tracks. So Dolby Digital tracks (with ac3 codec) always work great, DTS dosen't... (video is playing, but without sound). I use Movies & TV app for xbox or multimedia
    player.

    2) Problem does not occur in games or streaming services

    3) Ok. I set my HDMI autio to stereo uncompressed, optical audio selected bitstream, bitsream format DTS or DD. And it makes no difference(((

    May be i should set my soundbar to TV, not to Xbox?

    Xbox One Surround Sound Not Working over HDMI

    Similar issue here, but i can hear a crankling sound (especially with the dashboard sounds) instead of no audio.

    It happens with bitstream dts and dd (stereo is ok) and it happens both with digital optical and hdmi.

    I also tried my amplifier with another dts system via optical and it works good. Tried different cables too.

    Please, help!

    Stereo or DTS only for the optical out port right now- so most (all?) gaming headsets will only give stereo, since none that I know of process DTS. Hopefully DD comes later (most likely, since I'm sure that's what the XB1 aftermarket headsets will be using
    to pass game audio, just like with the 360).
