today i tested the DD/DD+ surround for 5HD on my 5.1 Home Theatre System (HTS).
i watched the 5hd afternoon movie "dirty dancing" on my starhub ch155 and confirmed it is broadcasted in surround 5.1 (the conversation comes from my HTS center speaker, all 5 speakers got diff sound.)
then i used my draco dvb-t2 stb to record the same movie in TS format and plugged it into the same HTS. confirmed that DD+ (sound 3) audio can work on my HTS (i think it's due to DD backward compatibility). dolby logo is displayed on HTS, and conversation comes from my HTS center speaker, all 5 speakers got diff sound.

as for AAC5.1 (eng) audio track, only front L/R speakers got sound, sound is good just without surround (maybe due to HTS cannot support 6-channels AAC).
for AAC (sound 2) audio track, normal stereo is heard. the sound is louder and feels like it's downmixed sound.
also played my 8HD recordings through the HTS. AAC5.1 and AAC same behaviour as 5HD.
