mplayer dvd://

mplayer dvd:// -channels 4

mplayer dvd:// -channels 6

Same result each time. I will upload an mplayer -v if I get round to it.

Excellent, that will make things easier. Unfortunately users who compile
without DTS support will probably end up with no sound whatsoever, since
mplayer pre6 often tries to play the DTS track by default even if the
support is not compiled in (you can override this with -aid 0x80, but
users will probably not be used to doing this since it is not necessary
in previous versions).
