I have a SONOS playbar which will only accept optical cable for sound. I have an LG OLED tv which will pass through 5.1 to the soundbar. Can the UP970 convert a 7.1 DTS signal to 5.1 and output it through the HDMI out?

Asked by: jimbo987
The LG 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc™ Player with HDR Compatibility, Model # UP970 supports the LPCM, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, DTS, DTS 2.0 + Digital Out, DTS-HD Master Audio, FLAC, AAC, WMA, MPEG 1/2 L2, and MP3 audio formats. An LPCM (usually referred to as just PCM) signal is read off a disc and can be transferred in two ways. One way is by retaining its digital form and sending that signal to a home theater receiver via a digital optical, digital coaxial, or HDMI connection. The receiver then converts the PCM signal to analog so that it can be sent through the amplifiers and on to the speakers. The reason the PCM signal has to be converted to analog is that the human ear works by hearing analog audio signals. The second way is for the player to convert the PCM signal back to analog form internally, and then transfer the re-created analog signal to a home theater or stereo receiver via standard analog audio connections. In this case, the stereo or home theater receiver does not have to perform any additional conversion in order for you to hear the sound. The UP970 can also read undecoded Dolby Digital or DTS type audio signals. Dolby and DTS are digital audio formats that use coding that compresses the information in order to fit all the surround sound audio information digitally onto a DVD or Blu-ray Disc. Usually, undecoded Dolby Digital and DTS audio files are transferred to a home theater receiver for further decoding to analog. The other option is that once read off the disc, the UP970 can internally convert Dolby Digital and DTS signals to uncompressed PCM, and then pass that decoded signal directly to a home theater receiver via an HDMI connection, or convert the PCM signal to analog for output via two or multichannel analog audio outputs to a home theater receiver that has the corresponding compatible inputs. However, since a PCM signal is uncompressed, it takes up more bandwidth transmission space. So, if using a digital optical or coaxial connection, there is only enough room to transfer two channels of PCM audio. For Dolby Digital or DTS surround signals that have been converted to PCM, you need to use an HDMI connection, as it can transfer up to eight channels of PCM audio. Digital Optical and Digital Coaxial connections can only access standard Dolby Digital/DTS surround signals and not the higher resolution digital surround sound formats, such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS:X. Those higher-resolution audio signals can only be passed through the HDMI connection...^IFV

Seriously thinking of purchasing a LG 4K TV and UP970 Blu-ray but very disappointed with ratings here and on Amazon, problems of no Dolby Vision software/firmware updates????? Problems from many with noisy operations??? Has this been fixed yet?? 4-7-18

Asked by: cobreeco
Hello, the UP970 received the Dolby Vision update a couple of months ago. Less that 1% of the units sold have experienced noise and those seem to have received some sort of shipping/transport damage. ^AC

I understand about Regional codes & restrictions on playing Blu Rays & DVDs. My question is simple, will the UP970 play 50hz discs? Some models & brands will and others won't. Thanks in adavance.

Asked by: naus
Regrettably, we are not familiar with 50 Hz discs. Movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps), and although advanced digital TVs support 24 fps and can display movies natively, analog TVs and many digital TVs cannot. As a result, movie material must be converted to either 30 interlaced frames or 60 progressive frames by the DVD player or TV. Since 24 does not divide evenly into 60, four progressive movie frames are converted to five interlaced or 10 progressive frames. The process, known as "3:2 pulldown" or "2:3 pulldown," cannot create a flawless copy of the original movie because 24 does not divide evenly into 30 or 60. Although new movies on DVD are in the progressive 24 fps format (24p), older movies on videotape, which have previously undergone the telecine process and contain the 3:2 conversion, are sometimes recorded on DVDs. If a DVD player or digital TV supports "cadence correction," it reverses any 3:2 cadences it finds back to full film frames before it applies any telecine processes. The 1080p or 2160p video output frame rate on the LG 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc™ Player with HDR Compatibility, Model # UP970 may be automatically set to either 24 Hz or 60 Hz depending both on the capability and preference of the connected TV and based on the native video frame rate of the content on the BD-ROM disc. There is no option for 50 Hz...^IFV

Will the UP970 play 50z discs? (I have some old BBC Region free Bluray programs). A lot of players can't handle 50hz discs. My Philips 7501 does, but I want a player with DolbyVision. Thanks in advance.

Asked by: naus
