Thanks for responding. I solved the problem last night. I’m posting it here so if anyone else is having the same problem it might help them out. BTW yes, DTS does rule over Dolby Digital. I find that DTS is louder, better bass pass though and the surround steering is better.
After reading through this group for a long time yesterday and seeing that DVDClone does not alter the DTS or Dolby Digital files at all I was beginning to think that there was something wrong with my equipment. I checked my optical cable running from my DVD player to my amp. Nothing wrong there, Iâ€™m not sure if you could tell anyway. Red light was coming out of the end so it wasnâ€™t broken. My Yamaha amp does all of the configuring automatically so I tried all of the different DSP modes that it has, same problem.
I then started going through my Sony DVD playerâ€™s settings. Everything seemed to be okay. I then started looking to my DVD playerâ€™s remote. There is this button on it labeled â€œSurroundâ€ not sure what is does exactly. But when you push the button it cycles through â€œSurround 1, Surround 2, Surround 3 then Offâ€. I set it to Off and the problem went away. Yeah!!! I must have hit that button by mistake at some time.
The funny thing is, once I set it to off and changed it back to see if I could duplicate the problem I could not get it to do it again. I could hit that Surround button and cycle through the different options but could not duplicate the problem.
So anyway itâ€™s not a problem with DVDClone. If you are experiencing the same type of problem I would suggest you check your equipment settings. My problems before I fixed it could be heard on both a copy and original in the exact same places in the movie.
