    As far as I'm aware Private Ryan DTS and the Haunting DTS-ES are only available in American, ie. R1. As for the U-571, the DTS soundtrack is exactly the same, although I'm sure I remember something about the R2 version being framed wrongly? Can anyone confirm this?

    You are correct U-571 Is in 2.35:1 on Region 1 and 1.85:1 on Region 2 . Only R1 has the DTS.
    I think the German R2 had DTS but not sure if this is in just the German language only?

    U-571.

    Someone got here before me.

    The R2 is framed in 1:85 not the original aspect ratio and is DD only. The R1 has the original aspect ratio of 2:35:1 and has both.

    If a film is in DD EX at the cinema it will be the same on the DVD. This is because of the way the soundtrack is transfered to dvd. The same is also true for DTS-ES. DVD may not be labelled up as such but the extra channel is there.

    The DD and DTS soundtracks should be the same for both regions (apart from the difference in formats). Although somtimes the bit rates (Quality: Changed so that certain people don't flip their lids) can differ between regions.

    Higher bitrate doesn't equal higher volume.
    Higher video bitrate doesn't equal a bigger picture.
    Higher bitrate equals more detail
