    If a system tries to play back a bitstream it has wrongly identified, you will get that noise. ie. playing DTS, but not recognizing it as DTS and simply outputting it as LPCM.

    Which radio system is installed in your vehicle? Be aware the base radio system in the 2nd gen CTS will not play DVDs at all, the 40GB non-Nav radio system (rpo U2S) will play DVD-A discs but not play DVD-V discs, and the 40GB Nav/Infotainment radio system (rpo UAV) will play both DVD-A and DVD-V discs.

    Other: I've discovered that many latest model cars (including the all new 2014 CTS Sedan as well as the upcoming 2015 Lincoln MKC luxury compact SUV that my wife is interested in) will not play DVDs at all... and that is unfortunate.

    I have the Bose system with the 40g and the pop up navi screen/w navigation. It plays the disc but sound is all static.

    Alright.. so try another store-bought DVD audio or video disc to see what happens. If the sound is still all static then something in your infotainment system is broken. Has the audio system's firmware (application software) in your '08 car ever been updated? (via a Nav Maps update disc).

    Then narrow it down like RAB mentioned by trying a new store-bought DVD.
