Hey guys, is it me or does tonights game on NFL network sound awesome?
You just need to go into the audio settings for your sat or cable box and make the switch. Isn't crazy to think about all the great sound you have missed out on. My brother had a similar problem with his ps3 for a year, lol. Usually if you leave the settings the way the company's tech set them to then something is gonna be missing. I just got another hddvr from from directv a month ago and after the install I noticed the sound was a bit off. A quick check of the audio settings revealed he left settings on non-DD. no offense to installers but always check their work.gdstupak said:Now that I've got an Onkyo that tells me what kind of signal it is receiving, I have found out that all programming from my Suddenlink cable box is always simple stereo even though many programs have a notification saying they are DD5.1.
I wonder if other cable companys or sat tv companys do broadcast in DD5.1.
Yes, mine does. I told my Onkyo AVR to input the cable box's audio through the OPT1 input. My AVR shows me that it is receiving a 'digital' signal through the OPT1 input albeit a STEREO signal, never has been DD.Sometimes the receivers require or at least give you the option to assign audio outputs to selections. Such as dtv/hdmi or dtv/optical.
