Default When you select HD-DVD audio, does it mean that?

That it reroutes everything in DTS? Because it certainly doesn't sound like DD.

I readon post on MajorNelson.com from a reader saying that you have press the "display" button on your '360 HD DVD remote and go to the digital audio setting to specify which setting you want your sound to outputted in.

I'm going to try it for myself when I get home. I'll post an update in about an hour.

I don't really understand your question - perhaps you could clarify exactly what you're asking. I will try to answer your question as best as I know how.

When an HD DVD is playing in the drive, and you change the settings to "DTS," the HD DVD player will decode the audio track currently selected (whether it be Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD, DTS, DD+, or DD) and then output the sound as DTS. It essentially re-converts the sound signal to a 1.5 mbps DTS stream to the signal.

This is only effective for HD DVDs. Whenever you play SD DVDs in the HD DVD drive, the sound output will be whatever is selected in your Dashboard Settings (under "Console Settings" and "Audio Output"). So even if an SD DVD has a DTS track, you will not be able to get DTS output from the DVD.

I tested Superman Return's Dobly TrueHD track with the new DTS option this morning, it sounded glorious. First time I've heard a difference between HD DVD and SD DVDs.
