If the audio signal in from HDMI is DTS the unit cannot output this through the digital out (only stereo and dolby digital/5.1).

The DP55441 is a 55" LCD HDTV from Sanyo that was released in the first quarter of 2011 along with other LCD models such as the similar DP46841 and DP42841. One feature that this has over the previous mentioned is a light sensor that will detect room lighting conditions and adjust screen brightness automatically, although this can be turned off as well. Otherwise it comes with the same selection of inputs and outputs which are outlined below in the features section including 3 HDMI inputs, 2 HD component inputs, USB input for viewing pictures directly from a flash drive and digital audio output for connecting to a home theater surround system. This may also be used as a monitor for your PC or laptop by connecting to the standard VGA input. Digital Clear ATSC and NTSC analog tuners are standard and allow for reception of both analog and unscrambled digital stations and an RF or 'coaxial' antenna input is included for connecting to a traditional cable line. Two 10 watt speakers are built into the unit and you can adjust bass, treble and switch audio modes using the remote control. Comes with table stand, wall mount adapter sold separately.

I've had my Sanyo for a month now and could not be happier. I purchased at walmart for a little over $800.00. I originaly picked this unit because the brightness and colors/contrast was one of the top 3 in the store. It compared to the $1,700 models of the same size. I also picked this unit for the 120mh. Don't let the price fool you, the picture quality is top notch and very smooth (even with action movies). I suppose there is better out there but we are talking about a scale that only critics use to measure with. I'm very aware of picture quality and did a lot of research on HD TV's before making a decision and I am delighted with this unit. One of the reasons it is less expensive than some other units of the same size is that it does not have internet capabilities, is not 3D and is not 240mh. I bought a Sony Blue Ray player that handled the internet and I could care less about 3D(almost no media at the moment, waste of money for now) and the 120mh is more than enough refresh rate speed to make a clear picture during action time. If you want a quality big screen you need to buy this unit. Take the money you saved and invest in a Home Theater system to go with it. You definitely need to upgrade to Home Theater sound to go with this gigantic screen.
