Re: separating voices and music in movie scenes

That's correct. It is a common practise that the dialogue is placed only into the center front channel in discrete multichannel, such as Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1. You may find exceptions especially in comedies, when some short parts of the dialogue
have been placed in some other direction, or panned between two channels.
