I am sure this is a noob question, but I'm a noob . I have my HDTV cable box connected to my receiver with COAX digital audio. The HD channels say they broadcast in 5.1, yet my receiver will only play Pro-Logic. Yes my receiver supports 5.1 and it works with my xbox with optical sound. So my question... even though coax is a digital connection, does it not support tru Dolby 5.1 surround?
Yeah I guess my cable provider just doesn't support it.... I have my HD channels and they are saying they are broadcasting in 5.1 but it isn't coming through that way... I will check my cable box to see if there is a 5.1 or DTS setting is the only thing I can do I suppose.
