If you are refering to the lethal weapon set, yes, the same mix was used for the two different formats.

dts rocks for me

I pick DTS as a default on discs that have them as well. (Except for those awful fake DTS tracks on pirated dvds....) ;D

2) Dolby digital is a standard in the dvd format. This means ALL dvds must have some form of Dolby on them, be it 5.1, 2.0 or even mono.

Makikisabat lang nang konti.

Ang alam ko, hindi naman mandatory ang Dolby.  Pero mandatory on all DVD Video is either Dolby or PCM.

For example: Eagles: Hell Freezes Over has DTS 5.1 and PCM, but does not have Dolby.

Forgot about PCM! ;D 

Let me revise: Dolby and PCM are mandatory on all DVD players. This means that all dvd players should be able to play these two formats (DTS support is optional.). On the discs themselves barrister is correct it must conain a track of either of the two formats.  ;D

PCM - "Pulse Coded Modulation", the audio format standard for CD’s.

need help on this please...

what is AC-3 audio? what's the difference between AC-3 and DD 5.1?

I tried recently Saving Private Ryan and noticed that the audio encoding (when i manually changed the audio format from the remote) is AC-3 5.1, To tell you guys frankly, the pirated version sounded better. I have to crank up the volume to get results.

Im using a philips 727k player (with built in DTS & DD decoder) coupled with a pre-amped Xenon 5.1

AC-3 is the more technical term for DD 5.1.  They're one and the same.

After having read thru six pages of on-going discussion (since 2004) as to what DD and DTS are, I have a question.

So, DTS says he's better - to prove its point, there are 9 DVD Releases to "audition" your set-up at home.  Such DVDs are called DEMO DTS Discs.

So, the question is : Does Dolby Digital has demo discs similar to this?

But then, isakay ko na lang ang tanong ko dito na hindi talaga nasagot sa ibang forums.  Tanong ay, ano ba ang mga magagandang Demo Discs ng DTS?  Mahal kasi ang isa... kung pwede, can you spend time and PM me instead for your answers?

Thanks!

question co-members...

paano pag DTS encoded and THX certified ang dvd.. i assume it would play the DTS on the DTS option and THX on the DD.. right?

titles like atlantis and emperor's new groove have both insignias..

 ???

dts and dd are codecs...

thx is a standard which indicates that what you are about to see and hear are exactly what the director would like you to see and hear (provided you have adjusted your audio and video equipments to their standard).  as for video, you can adjust brightness/contrast/color by using the thx optimizer on your thx certified dvd.

hope this clears things up a bit.

on the other hand, though dts has higher bitrate, it doesn't actually mean that it may sound better.  the source audio needs to be considered also.  on the other hand, dolby has indicated that their compression technique is just better, the reason why they have lower bitrates.

this is basically the same as mp3 vs wma.  mp3 may use a higher bitrate but is not a guarantee that it would sound better.  if compared, 128bits of wma will always sound better than 128bits of mp3.

but then again, pcm will always top my list, followed by dts and then dd.  pcm, being uncompressed data (and as long as it is 5.1 minimum).

 :)

Hmmm...exactly which dvds have uncompressed 5.1 PCM? I have a modest collection and I have yet to see one that features this.

Many concert dvds have PCM in stereo (2.0) and recent Dual discs (CD+DVD on the opposite side, sold in the US) have "enhanced stereo" (2.0) on their DVD side which is a (pressumably) higher bit rate PCM track of the CD but I have not encountered 5.1 PCM.
