Think about it. If it works for some files, it must be possible to make it work for others!
Please, Please look up on these things before you go assuming.
Simply open terminal and type

To disable, change the '1' to '0'
And, You can just use XBMC, which can NATIVITY play back all digital formats (including DTS True surround) in full 5.1, and even, theoretically, 7.1 surround.
