    I played the DTS-ES 6.1 encoded 'Spirited Away' with my YAMAHA RX-V340 amp, which could decode DTS matrix 6.1. the amp only generated some noise to the speakers. But this disc can be played using my friend's amp that only support DTS 5.1.

    I heard that DTS-ES 6.1 was backward compatible with DTS 5.1 by ignoring a track. But my amp treated DTS-ES 6.1 as DTS matrix 6.1, and could not decode it successfully, even I put off the 'matrix' light on the front panel using remote control.

    Could I force the normal DTS 5.1 decoder to work with disc to hear something?
    :confused: :confused:

    Please help me... thanks in advance.

    DTS ES Discrete is fully compatible with DTS ES Matrix and DTS 5.1 decoders. Info here:

    Your amp has "Phantom" DTS ES Matrix and Dolby EX processing to generate a rear centre image. Maybe you've missed something in the setup procedure but I would have thought by selecting the correct mode you should get sound from the phantom rear centre.
