5.1 sound on all HD rentals?

    I was wondering if anyone else has rented an HD movie and it didn't come through with 5.1 sound? This has happened to me twice now, one with an older movie (90's) and one with a 2006 release movie. All of the other HD rentals have come through with 5.1 so I know my system is set up right.

    I figured it out. I thought all HD movies were 5.1DD, but after looking more closely at movies on the apple tv, not all movies are 5.1. There is a small DD symbol next to the HD symbol if it is Dolby Digital. A little disappointing, that's a large reason why I rent HD.
