I bought playbar and 2 play:1 for dolby surround 5.1 experience replacing my old onkyo receiver with 5.1 surround speaker system. I paid close to 1000$ for this system. So far so good and I removed my receiver and old speakers. Yesterday, we rented a bluray disc from redbox and found out that playbar was unable to output any sound.
This used to work perfectly with my onkyo receivers. Spent some time changing settings on bluray player and audio settings in the bluray movie options for audio.
Then googled it about this issue and found out that Bluray movies outputs DTS sound and playbar doesnt support this. I am very surprised. I was about to order sonos sub but if I cant play any of my existing bluray discs or bluray movies rented from redbox then what is the point of spending 1800$ on a surround system.
Is this a short term issue or sonos will never support DTS. I still have few days left to return the system. Any suggestion or help is appreciated.
I dont want to change the bitstream to PCM because I will loose 5.1 surround sound. I dont want to go back even after spending 1800$. I dont understand how come nobody from sonos have ever looked into this solution.
