    can some one please explain why dts list their ES as 6.1 when dolby say 5.1?
    surely if it was 6.1,it would mean discrete?
    On the r3 dark water dvd it says 6.1es when its only 5.1 with a matrixed surround just like the dolby 5.1ex.
    Just find this to be very misleading,why dont dolby call theres 6.1ex?
    they are both using the same methods!!:eek: :confused:

    There *is* such as thing as dts 6.1 ES discrete, but often films are labelled 6.1 when they actually only have a matrixed rear channel.

    There aren't many dts es discrete titles, but there are a few very good R1 examples such as Gladiator and The Haunting.

    It's just DTS 5.1. Unless, of course, they forgot to put the Matrix flag in (I checked the flags for Dark Water and there's no flag there, which is unusual).
