    The original Dolby EX specification included a ceiling speaker channel signal within the EX matrix. Tag provided both the AV32RDP and AV192 with the ability to extrapolate this information. However the only film ever mentioned as having height channel information was We Were Soldiers. The height channel mode will work with all films but the results vary :)

    I have to agree..... A decent setup with high (2Mtr off the deck) mounted surrounds (dipole personally) and a good set of rear's (again 2mtr off the deck) did enough to make most people look up or duck as the helicopter flew overhead anyway...... Of course these speakers were also of rather more use with other films as well.......(Yes Udo I did finally get to 7.1......).......

    Personally I think marketing got a bit carried away on this one......
