I'm hoping that someone can help me confirm that I'm not crazy....

Here's an oversimplification of my setup:
Onkyo TX-NR807 7.1 channel receiver
WD Live Plus HD Media Player
HP Pavillion Laptop w/Blu-ray drive

All connected to receiver with quality HDMI cables

Now- I have watched hundreds of movies, both Blu-ray and DVD, 7.1 and 5.1 DTS mixes and they all sound great. I have setup both my WD Live Plus and my HP laptop to pass non-decoded audio on to the Onkyo receiver to be decoded. But I recently purchased Yanni: Voices on DVD which has both 2.0 and DTS 5.1 audio. The 2.0 audio works fine (naturally), but when I switch to 5.1, all the sound is heavily biased to the left-rear channel. There is still sound coming out of the other channels, but it's sounds more like a surround channel. All the vocals are coming from the left rear- not at all what you would expect. Any other DVD, Blu-ray, etc. works fine and sounds great.

Hoping that there is another A/V buff out there that owns this DVD and can confirm that it's the DVD recording that is the issue and not some strange ghost inside my system.....
