...supposed to be dts-Extended-Surround:

Any confirmations?

It's not listed as Surround EX here (and it should be, if it's ES):

The DTS CD's clearly indicate DTS-ES. The print is auto-decoding into Dolby EX on our CP-650's. The closing credits indicate Dolby EX, DTS-ES and SDDS8.

Our Dolby house system is indicating that we are running in EX mode. Sounds good, too.

The credits do indicate SDDS-8 (wouldn't that be SDDS-9 if it was an ES/EX mix and you played it through an ES/EX processor on its way to the AMPs? [Smile] ), but I haven't noticed any LC or RC activity yet. I did notice our sub woofer level peak a couple of times on the SDDS though - which I have never seen in that theater before.

So any word if if it truly was SDDS-8? Or can we lay the final dirt on that plot?
