I just picked up this player a few weeks ago.  Love it.  I noticed when I put on a movie with DTS-MA 7.1 sound (like Toy Story 3 and Sound of Music), the player says it has a 5.1 soundtrack.  But I'm clearly hearing sound from the back surround speaker (I'm using the 7.1 analog outputs).  Is this normal?

Another thing:  I have a 6.1 setup in my room (very small).  When I hear sounds out of the rear back speaker, it also comes out of either the left or right rear surround.  I know I have everything hooked up correctly- I've run test tones to confirm.  Is this normal?

I solved my own problem.  Discovered you have to have the Secondary Audio Channel set to OFF.  When it's set to ON all 7.1 audio is mixed down to 5.1.
