You know that only affected AC3 (Dolby Digital) tracks. If you could find said files with DTS tracks you wouldn't have a problem :)


You can't pass DTS to your TV though, only a receiver. You can however pass AC3 to your TV. So useful for those without an audio system.

I think anyway lol.

Ah good point, yes DTS needs a decoder. But surely so does Dolby Digital?

I think Dolby Digital can just get down mixed to 2.0 by most devices? Not sure.
