Antenna hooked into TV audio out through Digital Coax to Denon Receiver.
More info would be appreciated here. Assuming the antenna goes to a TV, and that the digital audio bitream output of the TV is going to your Denon receiver, you need to go into the audio menu on the TV and set it to output Dolby Digital (sometimes the menu says "bitream" or "raw.") Sometimes the default is "PCM," which only gives you a stereo downmix, no DD.
The Denon will not show a "digital" indication on the Denon if it is only being fed an analog signal. The Denon may show "Dolby Pro Logic," but that is just telling you that it is trying to decode (upmix) the stereo input.
