So after some fussing around it appears my PN50C7000 Plasma does not support Dolby Digital through the Optical out jack. Is there any way around this or a way to force it on?

I have my Dish reciever, my Blu Ray player plugged into the TV and was hoping the optical out would allow dolby digital so I can enjoy 5.1 but that appears to not be possible?

The only time you'll get 5.1 from most TVs digital output is from the TV's internal tuner. The vast majority of sets will only pass a stereo signal from any other source. Always route external sources through a receiver/pre-pro first if possible.
