Does anyone know if I should be able to get Dolby Digital output from the DishTV T1050PVR?
PVR connected to receiver using coax digital connection. I'm getting sound but not being detected as Dolby Digital. I've selected the correct audio stream on the TV transmission.
The same channels received on inbuilt tuner in TV (Panasonic TH-50PZ850AZ), output to same surround receiver using optical digital connection is correctly detected as Dolby Digital - provided I configure the TV optical output as Auto (not PCM). So I'm wondering if the DishTV is outputting as the wrong format - but I can't see any options in the PVR to set the output type for the digital output. I don't believe the fact that one is a coax and the other an optical connection should make a difference.
