I have the Dolby "Sound of High Definition" HD-DVD and the DTS demo disc, and neither will play in 7.1 when output via PCM. The only player I can hear both in 7.1 is the LG BH200, which I don't use since it stretched 4x3 material. My main player is a modified HD-A30 which can bitstream Dolby Digital Plus but not Dolby TrueHD- it will output the Dolby Digital Plus tracks on the demo disc in 7.1 bitstreamed but not through PCM, and there is no way to hear the TrueHD or DTS-HD tracks in 7.1. Of course bitstreaming loses the menu-button sounds and any overlayed audio.
