Hello :)
My Blu Ray is the Sony bdp-s3700 and TV is Sony kdl 32w705b. Will I be able to transcode DTS to Dolby Digital with any of these?

Check the Blu-Ray manual and look for Dolby D compatible audio output using EDID ...”extended display identification data”. I’m pretty sure that Sony model supports that, but you may have to switch it on in its settings.

Thank you. If I find that it doesn’t support that, is there some sort of device I can buy to do the transcoding?
Perhaps see this link below. There used to be a compiled list of blu-ray players that did DTS/DD 5.1 ‘on the fly' transcoding, but I can’t seem to find it at the moment. It was mostly Samsung and Sony players from 2015 onwards, if my memory serves me correctly? Hope the link helps.?

Thank you. One last question. What happens if you play a Blu Ray that is Dolby True HD? Does it get converted into DD5.1?
It will depend what codecs/audio formats are supported by the player. I think many users seemed to prefer the Samsung models like Samsung BD-J7500 but I’m not sure which player actually worked best with SonoS HT. It maybe a case of looking through the manuals and/or speaking to the respective support desks for the Blu-ray players that you have in mind, to see what they actually do support.

I’m not a person that uses Blu-ray Discs, as I’m more for streaming 5.1 DD movies these days, so I’m not really fully upto speed on what’s currently available.

Just checked the User Manual for your player and as Ken has previously stated there is an option for you to set for this (Dolby D Compatible Output) see attached page:-
