Can I get 5.1 sound from the coax digital audio connection or only from the optical connection?
I believe that you have to go into the menu options and select Dolby Digital under the audio out options. i am not aat my DCH presently, but I get Dolby Digital reading on my Pioneer having it connected with optical cable in the TV/SAT input. I will look back to exactly what I had to do, but that is pretty much what I remeber, so yes you can!
