I have a Kenwood VR-307 that doesn't seem to recognise the bitstream audio from my HD DVD Polar Express on my (Toshiba HD A2) DVD player as 5.1 multi channel. It plays ordinary DVDs in 5.1 suround (auto detects), yet the same settings don't play the HD DVD.
I know the HD DVD is Dolby Digital Plus, however I thought DD+ was downward compatible with "plain" Dolby Digital 5.1?
This thread sounds like a similar issue. Can anyone explain to me what's happening here?
Thanks in advance,
