Hi all,

I've finally hooked up my Apple TV to my HD projector and AV receiver and I'm keen to try an HD film from the iTunes store.

However I want to make sure I get a full Dolby 5.1 soundtrack and I can't find any film that's labelled as 5.1 or Dolby Digital. There are quite a few that have the Dolby logo but I'm worried that these are only stereo with a Pro-logic mix. (I'm wary as I've already purchased a movie in the HD category that was SD!)

So, can anyone in the UK confirm that the Dobly (sic) symbol means that it really is Dolby Digital 5.1?



MacBook 2GHz and iMac 24" white (and Apple TV), Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    When you rent them just before you confirm it tells you something along the lines of 'you're renting a HD movie only playable on AppleTv with 5.1 surround' if it has it.

    Anyhow the dolby logo generally means 5.1 as far as I can tell on the few I've rented (Beowulf, Stardust and the bore me to death Jesse James story).

    Hi AC,

    Thanks for the quick reply, I hadn't realised that there was a confirmation screen - and I've now seen it for myself - Kite Runner ready to play in 7 minutes!
