Default How can I get Dolby Digital / DTS 5.1 and 6.1 audio on my computer?

I have a 7.1 channel integrated audio card. I was thinking of getting a 7.1 speaker system for my computer. But is there a program that will allow me to get discreet 5.1 / 6.1 channel audio when the media source is encoded in Dolby Digital (EX) / DTS (ES)? Does Windows Media Player have the ability to decode DTS and Dolby Digital?

I believe WMP 10 can handle Dolby Digital as for having 5.1 channel audio when needed your media player may automatically adjust for this or you can go into the windows speaker setup and select 5.1 from the drop down menu.
SPEEEED UP Windows XP using the secret tweaks in these videos.
