6.1 Dts Ex & 5.1 Dd Es

First of all i would like to thank all who responded my last q.
Now I'd like to know whats the extra info that 6.1 DTS EX and 5.1 DD ES bring. 5.1 stands for: FRONT L&R, SURR L&R and center, and .1 for sub-woofer. Whats the 6th speaker for?
What does EX and ES means?

Thanks but i want to know if my system (5.1 dts) will be able to play dts 6.1 movies or not. I've heared that the noise that comes out of the speaker when the reciever doesnt decode the information dameges the ears and speakers also, so will the extra rear surround speaker afect my other speakers and damage them or there no need for me to upgrade my system.

Yes, your DVDs will play just fine. The sixth channel of information is simply mixed into the left and right surrounds on a 5.1 system.
