    Looked at the back of Gladiator in Virgin today and it has a DTS-ES logo and a 5.1 logo.

    Can anyone tell me if this title has DTS-ES (i.e. 6.1) like the R1 release or is it DTS 5.1 (as well as DD 5.1 of course)?

    To clarify, the Region 1 is DTS ES Discrete so it is a true 6.1 format.

    The Region 2 is DTS ES Matrix so it is actually 5.1 but if you power it into a DTS ES 6.1 Amp it will produce a Centre image created from the rear left and right channels, instead of actually having a Rear Centre Channel (which the Region 1 has).
