Problems with Dolby EX

When I try to play SW III, only the opening THX logo scene is decoded as Dolby Digital 5.1 EX. The rest of the movie plays as regular Dolby Digital 5.1. This also happens on some other DVDs that are supposidely produced in 5.1 EX.

If you don't know, true 5.1 EX carries a discrete back channel for 6.1 or 7.1 receivers. Some receivers will synthesize the back channels, and some (like my Sony STRDE995) will play the true discrete back surround channel. So, if you don't have a receiver that will decode 5.1 EX, please disregard this thread.

Anyone else have the same problem?
