Question Has any one had problems with DTS on Avatar blu-ray?

On the Avatar Blu-ray, with the English DTS audio stream I'm only getting 2.1 sound out of my 5.1 speaker setup (logitech x530)

All the other audio tracks/languages (bar the dolby digital one) work perfectly across my surround sound setup. for instance i can get 5.1 sound on the the descriptive english track... just not the normal movie audio

seriously bugging me! I only bought the blu-ray player just for avatar and now its not working properly.... GRRRR

I've tested my only other blu-ray movies (the dark knight and batman begins) and both work flawlessly in 5.1.. well, so does avatar actually, just not with the Audio Track i need it in.

I'm using PowerDVD 7.3 (which came with my LG Blu-ray combodrive)
I'll paste what it says in the options when the DTS Audio track is being used

"Audio Attributes:
Audio Coding mode: DTS
Sampling Rate: 48kHz
Number of Audio channels: 5.1
Bitrate: 3765 Kbps"

So apparently it thinks its 5.1, but it won't play 5.1 through my speakers, yet the other audio tracks all will

This is my system specs incase anyone it might help
