Ok, I've got everything setup on my DCT6416 PVR for video output through HDMI. Currently I'm outputting audio through an optical digital audio cable, since I'd like full surround sound.

Here's my setup :
TV = Viewsonic 37" with 3 x HDMI inputs and a SPDIF input, or output? I'm not sure, it doesn't say, but I'm assuming it's out.
Receiver = Sony, with 3 optical digital audio inputs, with automatic input detection.

Now... if I have the optical audio cable directly connected from the PVR to the receiver, i get full surround on supported channels. However, if I just use the HDMI output from the PVR to the TV for video AND audio, I only get standard analog on the same channels.

Through the TV, I have dolby digital selected for digital audio out... and the damn PVR has next to nothing for audio output settings.

Any suggestions? If you can decipher my crazy setup I applaud you

Nevermind... I just read another post that said I basically can't output 5.1 through HDMI if it goes through the TV.

Thanks
