    I bought this dvd player recently, and I have the player hooked up through my yamaha 5740 receiver I recently bought. The player is connected to the receiver through the digital optical cable. I was playing the EE of Fellowship, and the front of my receiver said dts, and the dvd player said dts on the front, but when I hit the display on the dvd...it says 3/2.1 ch. Because the dvd only decodes 5.1 it won't play the 6.1, but it says 3/2.1 ch, so does that mean its only playing 2.1, and simulating 5.1?

    No,that's just the way the 563 displays its multi-channel output.
