    I recently bought a Sony STR-DE1075 receiver so I could get 6.1 channel sound. I am very happy with this receiver except for the fact that when I put in a DD-EX disc I get no sixth channel sound. I get great sound from the DTS-ES discs so I know the speaker works. Does anyone know what i might have set wrong? Also does anyone know if this can be setup to get sound out of my sixth channel speaker off regular 5.1 channel disc. (figure it can't hurt to ask lol)

    Thanks,
    Joe

    i have the same reciever as you. i dont remember exactly off hand, but there is an option to select the 6th speaker. I have mine set to on all the time. This way the ex will come on automatically. Also with the center rear on all the time u can select the cinema A in sound options to have the rear channels mix into the center rear for 5.1 and tv .
