I can get it to display DD EX if i select it manually but with it set to auto it wont pick up DD EX in ANH. Therefore i stand corrected All 3 movies are in DD EX i apologize to everyone.

What Yamaha receiver are ou running mine is a RX-V2300

Poor Obi-Wan

The image of Anakin as a ghost being portrayed by Hayden Christensen obviously is meant to be the image of Jedi knights when they die and seeing as Anakin is to turn to Vadar in the next pic (And it is said by Obi Wan that Vadar is more machine than human.) that it is the image of him before he becomes machine.

Glitch With The DVDs?
Time
I know bootlegging the DVDs are not allowed to be discussed on the forum but i encountered the problem when i made a backup copy of the movies. (I own the originals but dont like to play them or lend them to friends for fear of them getting scratched.) I was using DVD shrink 3.2 and it happened although it should be angles 1/5 not 1/3. I am not saying your copies are bootlegged but that is the only time i have seen it happen as it didn't happen on my originals. And the fact that you only have the angles option of 1/3 is rather puzzling as the dvd comes in five different languages not 3. Email me if you wish to discuss it further.

You are incorrect! All 3 films do have true DD EX 5.1! Your receiver may not read it correctly, but I have a high-end setup, and ANH is in DD EX!

Well im running a high end setup too and on auto the display for ANH reads DD whereas the other 2 display DD EX. I must admit i am a big fan of DTS and dont get me wrong i love the tweaked DVD i just yearn for great movies to be presented in DTS eg SW, The Matrix.

Gladiator was a great visual transfer and had both DD and DTS so why couldnt GL do it with OT.

BTW what is your definition of high end setup????

The back of the cover boasts that all 3 movies are in Dolby Digital 5.1EX. NOT TRUE. Only TESB & ROTJ are in EX to listen to ANH in 5.1EX you have to change it to Matrix 6.1 A minor difference to most but not to me and the DD in ANH is crap dialogue seems over enhanced in some parts.

One more thing, if george lucas is so chummy with Steven Spielberg (who owns shares in DTS) why didn't these movies come out in DTS-ES 6.1 its such a better format and suited to movies like SW where you need crisp sharp sounds and deafening bass. Maybe im just being picky what do you think
