DTS soundtracks on laserdisc and not on DVD or BD?
#1
Question 
I'd like to know which title of the following list

has not a DVD and/or BD edition with a DTS soundtrack
   OR
where the DTS soundtrack is present, the DVD/BD edition is different from theatrical presentation but the laserdisc is the same
   OR
the DTS soundtrack is half bitrate (768kbps) - where laserdisc are 1441kbps - or the quality is not that good
   OR
simply, there is no DVD or BD edition at all!
 
This to determine which title could be eligible for a DTS soundtrack restoration, using the laserdisc DTS soundtrack and the best video available (BD or, if not available, DVD or, if there is no digital edition at all, the laserdisc video).
 
So, here you are a list of NTSC USA laserdiscs with DTS Digital Surround soundtrack:

--> notes about DVD/BD DTS soundtracks

*** - the movie's soundtrack was not originally recorded in a multi-channel, digital audio format; these laserdiscs' DTS soundtracks have been created by re-mastering the film's original analog soundtrack

§§§ - the movie's soundtrack was originally recorded in a multi-channel digital audio format other than DTS Digital Surround

TITLES IN BOLD - movies I own

STRIKEDTHROUGH - movies that doesn't deserve a DTS soundtrack restoration for one of this reasons:
(DVD) DVD available with a DTS soundtrack better than the laserdisc edition
(BD) Blu-Ray available with a DTS soundtrack better than the laserdisc edition
(BD/DVD) Both DVD and Blu-Ray have better DTS soundtrack than laserdisc
