14-bit DTS


I'm using the DTS 5.1 decoder on an adsp-21469 SHARC processor. When decoding an DTS stream which is in 14-bit format the decoding works just as with 16-bit but with an added high-frequency noise and distortion. I synchronize on the 0xE8001FFF (14-bit, big-endian) word and decode normally, without any changes to the input data.

I was unable to find any reference to the 14-bit DTS format in the specification and I was wondering if the decoder is capable of decoding a 14-bit DTS signal. Furthermore, are there any precautions that need to be taken or do any changes to the input data have to be made when encountering a 14-bit signal?

Thank you for your time,
