By tv tuner I'm assuming you mean Onkyo receiver (as in HTS). I know on my Yamaha if I select Straight for any given input, it will play what ever the source is without any processing. So if it's 5.1, that's what I get. If it's stereo, that's what's played.

Most Onkyo's will remember your last setting per source type.  So if it is changing formats/decoding more than likely the source is changing (some channels and many commercials are still only 2.0 rather than 5.1).

Your receiver display is telling you two things - the format of the audio arriving from the source and the Listening Mode being used to process the sound. If the source changes, as it may going from a program to a commercial, then the display will change, too.

So, it may change from DD 5.1 on a show to stereo PCM for a commercial. And, if you have assigned a Listening Mode such as PLII to stereo sources, then that mode will also show up on the display during the commercial.
