As above really, are all HD programes 5.1 as standard?

Virtually every movie and imported programme will be made with DD5.1 audio there may be reasons why SKY and others don't actually broadcast as such, that aside DD audio is the default standard for HD.

It's fairly rare these days that a movie is DS. Somtimes, like Saving Private Ryan the other night, they get advertised as DS and then end up being in DD thank christ!
