Well, DTS I guess you could say is backward compatible with Dolby Digital 5.1. DD 5.1 is a more scaled down version of DTS, but nothing even remotely noticeable unless you have a high end receiver with very efficient speakers.

However, Prologic 2 is a bit newer and not all receivers that can play DTS have that pro logic 2 processor built in. But, that isn't even a big huge deal, all you are gaining from Pro Logic to Prologic 2 is 5.0 sound. Prologic was a 4.0 sound.

(5.0 meaning discrete audio signals to the 5 main speakers and no subwoofer support)
(4.0 meaning discrete audio signals to the front and center speaker and a shred audio signal to the rear speakers)

But, for an Xbox, to get truely great sound, get a digital receiver and throw on an optical cable. Sounds GREAT!

DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 are two competing technologies. They aren't compatible in any way. You need to have an amp that can handle both to output both. Dolby Digital is part of the DVD spec, which is why it is present in almost all DVDs, wheras DTS (a Sony product) is aditional to the spec.

which one of the adapters do you need to have to hook up the fiber optic cable? The Advance AV Pack or the High Definition AV Pack? And does either support a S-Video input?
