    Hi guys...
    I just bought a set of M-Audio Sonica Theatre from Apple retail. Can't wait to see the luscious effect of what VLC could deliver of their DTS facility, I tried a DVD movie 'Troy' and 'The Day After Tomorrow'.

    Both of them are fine to playback from Apple's normal DVD player. But when i tried from VLC media player (0.8.1), there are no sound at all, although the setting are already in M-audio. The picture works fine without any sound.

    And when I tried to switch them into a normal option, suddenly the computer hang and it could lead to crashed.

    Do you have any idea how to turn the sound effect carried by M-audio processor (Not the one from normal Apple line out)...?

    Cheerz...!

    Considering that M-Audio commissioned a change to VLC so it would send the digital output to sonica, I would hope that someone would have added DTS output, too.

    You should be able to use the Audio menu to access the audio equipment list and select sonica/sonica theater AAC digital, even if DTS output is not available.

    Yeah right..!?!

    Hi bousozoku,

    Yeah..you are right.. VLC 0.8.0 - 0.8.1 ,they didn't serve a DTS format. But, I'm still holding a VLC 0.7.2 ,so it still can play DTS playback.

    Something strange happened with version 0.8.x anyway. Whatever they've changed as made it less useful, although for me, this has been a trend with each new release. The last download I did turned out to be a Japanese language release, even though I have Japanese selected as my 2nd language preference behind English. :)
