    Perry,
    Thanks for the info, I'm sure it will raise a few eyebrows on the forum.

    If this is regarding theatrical releases. . . how could you guys forget Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace?
    I'm sure the DVD will be at least THX-EX (and probably DTS-ES as well).
    Regards,

    Dan,
    I guess the title isn't that clear, but it's for DVD releases.

    Unbreakble DVD does not have DTS ES, just standard DTS. The Dolby EX track remains however.

    Doesn't the new Cast Away DVD have both DTS ES and DD EX? I don't have the disc with me, but that's what I remember seeing on the case.

    The Chicken Run disc is indeed DTS-ES Discrete 6.1. The cover is misprinted (big surprise).

    Yes, Chicken Run is definitely DTS-ES discrete. I was kind of surprised when I popped it in and the 5800 came up with DTS-ES Discrete.

    I have a couple of questions. I have a Yamaha RX-V1 that has an ES/EX 6.1 auto-detect feature, but it only automatically catches the discs that are actually labeled as such on the box (i.e. I throw in Terminator 2:UE and it automatically switches to DTS-ES, but if I throw in Hollow Man it doesn't auto-detect, but if I switch to EX, I do hear sounds from the rear center). Why is that? Also, if I put in a non-EX/ES DD5.1 disc, and manually switch the receiver to ES/EX, I think I still hear stuff from the rear center as well. Is it possible that the receiver creates a "fake" rear center channel from the rear signal, or is this just mish-mash junk coming through? Thanks!

    David,
    Up until recently only certain discs had the EX or ES flag set. I'm not sure why they didn't previously but more recent ones seem to have it set more often then not but this isn't written in stone.
    Within the Denon 5800 manual it states that you should keep the Auto Flag Detect Mode in the off position because of this.
    For normal 5.1 material you can still get some information going to the back channels. I don't know exactly about your Yamaha but I believe it just looks at the two side surrounds and any out of phase information is fed to the rear channel as DPL does with its rear surrounds.

    If Disney follows the theatrical release for the DVD, you can add "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" to the Surround EX list. The specification sheet that comes with each print confirms it.

    Yes, a 6.1 matrix decoder can extract the IN-PHASE signal common to the discrete left and right rear surround channels. That's pretty much what matrix DTS-ES and Dolby Digital EX decoders do is look for the in-phase sounds and route it to the center rear. Official ES and EX soundtracks supposedly do have a bit of out of phase information blended in with the in-phase sounds so that there is less of a collapsing of the soundfield into the center rear speaker.
    DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 instead has an actual hard discrete center rear channel with it's own set of full range sound effects, so you get the benefit of far less channel cross-talk and the rear soundfield does not collapse even with very subtle concurrent, multiple left-right/right-left surround panning (like with rain sound effects)-- a killer for matrix surround decoders.
