Soundbar 500 and DTS audio
What audio formats does the soundbar 500 support over HDMI and SPDIF? Does it support 5.1 channel PCM? And what is the best setup for movies that have DTS audio?
Its dissapointing that the soundbar 500 doesn't seem to support DTS audio. This is a high end home theatre system and even entry level AV amps these days support DTS and Dolby Digital audio formats. So this seems like a very cinical move by Bose to try and force people to buy the much larger and more expensive 700 which does seem to support DTS. If this is only a firmware restriction, I hope Bose reconsider and provide an update in the future to add DTS support.
I'm using the soundbar 500 connected to the HDMI ARC port from a Samsung JU7500 TV. I can only seem to hear audio from movies that are streamed to the TV with DTS audio if I configure the audio format on the TV to PCM. I'm not sure if the soundbar supports 5.1 channel PCM over HDMI or not, so its difficult to know if I'm getting full 5.1 surround from the source.
