[MPlayer-users] Multichannel DTS with MPlayer

But DTS in MPlayer doesn't work fine because a 5.1 DTS track is always
downmixed to 2.0, regardless of how many channels you tell it to
output via the -channels option. This isn't a problem with libdts,
it's a problem with MPlayer, because Xine is installed on my system
and it will play DTS in full 5.1 surround.
