    It's a long story, but can you recommend some movies with a lot of rear surround action? I have to test if my surrounds are getting a DD or mono signal. Thanks.

    Just to clarify, Dolby Digital is just a sound format and supports a number of channels from mono to multi-channel.

    What kind of a setup do you have? Some refer to the extra speakers in a 6.1 or 7.1 system as back surrounds or rear surrounds.

    Daredevil (either directors cut or theatrical) has a pretty aggressive rear channel mix as well.
