It's a 7.2 but I'm only using 5.1 currently.
Just tried playing the file with MPCHC but it's only decoding PCM using that player.
I'm pretty sure PDVD decodes DD+ but again the symbol shows no plus using that file?
On an Onkyo AVR, Dolby Digital Plus is displayed as "Dolby D+"

If you are using LAV filters in MPC-HC, then it cannot output EAC3 extension stream in M2TS file. The author of LAV filters had mentioned way back in 2011 that he wasn't going to spend any time fixing it since Dolby Digital Plus is an uncommon codec. It should however output standard Dolby Digital from EAC3. If you convert the M2TS file to MKV format, it WILL output Dolby Digital Plus.

PowerDVD shouldn't have had any problem with Dolby Digital Plus. Is the audio output mode set to "Non-decoded high-definition audio to external device"?

Dolby Digital Plus was extensviely used in HD-DVDs not so much in Blu-rays. I have 10 HD-DVD titles and all of them have Dolby Digital Plus (My poor Toshiba HD-XA2 player Sad Sad). It looks like studios have now resurrected Dolby Digital Plus and are using it for secondary language(s) Atmos tracks.
