i own the sony de1075 reciever. what i am wondering is if dts-es dvds require a reciever that decodes dts-es specifically or can my 6.1 dts reciever decode the dvds. This question also applies to dd-ex. thank you

There are two distinct forms of DTS-ES, matrix and discrete. Both can be played back as basic 5.1 by all existing DTS decoders.

This question also applies to dd-ex.
DD Surround EX soundtracks can be decoded as basic 5.1 by any DD decoder.

Bobby,you should have no problems playing back the DTS ES disks or Surround EX titles with your reciver just make sure you have the 6.1 decoding on the reciver set on,& of course have a rear center spk hooked up.

Yes, the only differance is it adds a 6th channel at least if it is discreet,if it is matrixed it will use the right & left rear information to make the rear channel.

With Dolby Digital Surround EX it to is a matrixed channel useing information from the right & left speakers also.What I mean by this if your not sure is the discreet channel is a completely sepret channel (it has its own information ) the other formatts do not.
