    Hi guys I am thinking of using my xbox as my dvd player in my spare room I know its will output dolby digital 5.1 and DTS but will it output DTS ES and Dolby EX ?
    I have an amp which does the decoding for both ES and EX.
    Thanks.

    All dvd players that output 5.1 will do ES/EX sounds as well as it is the amp that decodes the signal. It's kinda like pro-logic sound being buried in a stereo signal.

    I have just got my new yamaha RXV450TI amplifier which supports 6.1 and the decoding of dolby EX and DTS ES however I have hooked it up to my xbox tested it briefly yesterday with starwars epsiode 2 whihc is definately dolby EX and no sound comes out to my rear centere speaker at all the rear cnter spekaer is not even lit up on the display yet when I do a speaker test using the amp it works ?
    Has anyone actually got a 6.1 system setup using thier xbox ?
    I have altered all the setting spossible on the amp the xbox is as it should be set to DTS and dolby to on mode.
    Thanks in advance.
