Default Running Scared question

I just got my first import, Running Scared. Anyway, when the movie starts up obviously it is in German and is in DTS-HD Master Audio. When I switch it to English my reciever only shows DTS. Is this correct, I am confused as the audio options on the menu say both are DTS-HD.

Thanks

It's fairly common in German releases that the best spec audio track is the German dub and original audio track is given a bit lower bandwidth. It's likely that in this case the German dub really is DTS-HD MA and original English track is DTS-HD. I have the disc at home but actually I have no equipment that would support anything better than what optical cable can deliver.

in the review they say both are dts hd which could mean hd high resolution oder master audio.

the german track is master audio but the english track is only normal dts. all the studio canal, concorde and some other european hd dvds (hooligans for example) have the same problem. the dts hd high res tracks are only normal dts tracks. think it is a playback problem with toshiba hd dvd players or all those hd dvds are misprint

there is also a dutch a hd dvd of this movie. with dts hd master audio in english and more extras.

The Dutch release is reportedly much worse in the video encoding department than the German release though. I think the German release is very good.
