    On disc two the 5.1 digital is NOT active in the rear speakers at all. Forgive me but I do not have DTS.
    The rear absence is most noticable during the dragon/donkey chase.
    Is anyone else having this problem? Is it the disc?
    Thanks.

    I watched it in DTS so I'm not exactly sure, but this is not a very active surround mix and I've read seeral reviews claiming it was front heavy, so this may be the case like 'Forrest Gump'. The bass is nice though.

    It wasn't the most active mix, but there were definitely moments when the rear surrounds were engaged well. But, there are long moments when they are quiet.

    The surrounds are active on my disc (the DTS track, at least)
    The dragon chase sequence gives my surround speakers a nice workout...although the film IS mostly front speaker stuff.

    No audio problems so far, but something weird....on my dad's Aiwa player, if you press the next chapter button on disc one when the disc first starts playing (during the Dreamworks logo), the disc locks! There were no problems with disc 2, and you can get disc 1 to play right by pressing the menu button during the Dreamworks logo and then navigating from there, but the error is still odd.

    I posted another similar thread, but I am having tons of problems playing the extras on either disc. The sound on the movie wasn't very active in the surrounds but there was sound there. However, the trailer, the new ending, the deleted scenes.. all lock up for 2-5 seconds randomly and the picture gets corrupted. This doesn't happen on the Toshiba player my kids use, but on my Sony player it's really bad.. Not sure what to do (exchange the disc or what).
    At least the actual movie plays ok.. and a damn funny movie it is!

    In DTS mode, the scene where Donkey enters the old house at night to talk with the Princess, Bats flutter from around the room as they fly up towards the broken skylights above. A very stand-out surround scene!
