Default Hd-a35

hey guys i need to know if anyone can help me? i just purchased an hd-a35 to replace my 360 add-on and i have a thx certified 6.1 kenwood reciever that has dolby ex and dts-es and i have a couple of movies (face/off & disturbia) that are dts-es (6.1). i am using an optical cable and i have it set to bitstream but when i select dts-es(6.1) on the movies it only reads 5.1 can someone tell me if i'm doing something wrong or do the hd dvd players not decode the dts-es format? thanks in advance!!!

5.1 is the max transmission over optical...you need hdmi out to the receiver over bitstream to get what you want

I have the A35 via HDMI to my Onkyo 605 and I get it all!

that sucks! i love my hd dvds but that is one advantage that the ps3 has over them cause all blu ray movies that have extended channels show up using optical! i guess its not that big of a deal but i'm taking it back tomorrow and just keep using my 360 add-on! thanks guys!
