    I'm currently trying to get my HT setup to 6.1. I'm wondering if some of you who use a 6.1 setup can tell me what dvd player you use and if the dvd player makes any difference when using the 6.1 setup. Thanks

    The DVD player makes no difference whatsoever.

    Any DVD player with Digital output will support 6.1 encoding. Only DTS-ES supports discrete 6.1. Dolby utilizes Matrixed (also known as EX) 6.1. Some older DVD players and receivers do not support DTS at all.

    To get 6.1, you need a 6.1 or 7.1 Surround processor. THe DVD player basically makes no difference.

    Its only when you get into DVD-Audio and/or SACD that you will need a specialized player.
