Yes, you are correct and it is a shame. Lionsgate seems to put out a lot of movies I like.

Too bad though, I liked that Lionsgate (and 20th Cent Fox) had MA on all their stuff from back when. I will simply avoid Lionsgate BDs for rentals from now on perhaps, a shame.
Last weekend I rented The Avengers (Disney). It had 7.1 DTS-HD MA. Snow Whit and the Huntsman (Universal) also had DTS-HD MA 7.1. The weekend before I rented Cabin in the Woods- only 5.1 (Lionsgate). The first one I noticed was The Hunger Games, also Lionsgate. I was surprised when I played it and only got DD 5.1 after reading a review stating it was DTS-HD MA 7.1.
Personaly, for a rental I can live with DD 5.1. Not saying I like it, but I can live with it. I don't usually buy a movie until I preview it and renting is usually how I do it. I may just put off renting new releases from Lionsgate until the rental price drops. It's bad enough new release BD's cost the same as a DVD at Blockbuster, if I don't get all the audio I won't pay full price.
