Is there a way to play lossless multi-channel audio with DVD-Video 
players? AFAIK most video players only play the first two PCM channels.

But DVD-Audio players should play multi-channel PCM audio from a video 
DVD. Is there any reason not to produce a DVD-Video intead of DVD-Audio? 
(What are the aditional features of DVD-Audio besides MLP?)
