Just delivered from Amazon, try later, first time with DTS X.!
Had to check the rear cover to make sure it is there.
Never heard of The Huntsman before , worth a go just to hear the sound difference!
ANY help to work out why this is not working!
I have the huntsman br disc with DTS X in it.
I use a Panasonic DO BDT460 player into a Denon avr x1200w.
All the display shows is DTS no x.
Is this correct?
Done all updates and settings

I have a different AVR, so may be slightly different.

I think you will need to Bitstream from the BR Player to the AVR, with Secondary Audio OFF.

Make sure you select DTS-MA soundtrack in BR Player.

Once the film is playing, see what the AVR sees as incoming Audio Signal. You may need to use the Surround Mode to select DTS - if struggling from here, may best to posts a picture of the Audio INFO from the Denon.

Thanks for help.
I have these settings so far and it does sound better!
Is this correct from the pictures I took

Must be a setting in the amp then if you are still not getting Atmos/DTS :X I'm not familiar with the latest Denon amps so cant suggest what settings are wrong ?

I been through the whole manual and there is no mention of any displays available on the avr of DTS X or Atmos.
It seems Dolby HD +S or DTS HD is all it was manufactured to display so any online upgrades don't seem to be including display updates.
I suppose I will have to accept that it is doing what it meant to by checking all settings.
Does sound very good though!!

It will display Atmos or DTS:X when it is decoding Atmos or DTS:X, if it isn't you are not hearing Atmos or DTS:X

As a guess just push the Green Movie Button – it's one of the sound mode buttons on the remote – until it says DTS:X on the front display

The Reason that you are not getting the DTS:X soundtrack is because you have the receiver set to Dolby Surround for that input. THe receiver will revert to the 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio base layer and ignore the DTS:X metadata if applying DSU to the audio coming into the receiver. Press and hold down the green MOVIE button on the remote until a meni appears onscreen. Select the discrete incoming audio from this menu as opposed to any of the surround modes. Note the same is true of apply Neiral:X to Atmos audio. You'd not get Atmos and you'd get TrueHD with Neural:X applied to it.

Thanks Dante.
I have tried green button and selected DTS HD MASTER. Also tried all the others but still the display is DTS HD MA .
I have posted on this thread a few back images of BR player and avr settings.
Shame really .I have the Disc. Br player. Avr all ready to do it but no go.

Maybe I have a bad quality hdmi lead?

If you are still not getting DTS:X or even an option to select it then your receiver is unlikely tobe setup with a speaker configuration that is compliant with either DTS:X or Atmos? The HDMI cable has nothing at all to do with it. If able to convey DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD via that cable then there;s no reason why you'd be inable to get DTS:X or Atmos via it. The signal is simply 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio or TrueHD along with the associated DTS:X or Atmos metadata.

Sorry to check the most basic of things, but go to

SETUP -- GENERAL -- INFORMATION - FIRMWARE -- DTS VERSION

If "DTS Version" is listed, it has defo been installed.

The best info for the Denon is by pressing INFO button on the AVR controller. That should show input and output speakers, along with Surround Mode selected. (Or does on mine). Post a picture of that. It may ne best to post in the X1200 Thread to resolve...

I have read elsewhere that the X1200W got the DTS:X firmware update today (US) - might be worth checking......

I have 5.1.2 with upfiring KEF R50s. Big improvement in the front soundfield, filling the gap between speakers and ceiling. Love it, especially Neural:X.

Do you guys have 120 or 150Hz assigned to your overhead speakers?
