I recently bought a new Samsung smart tv. I had been running an old Mitsubishi 55 DLP through my denon receiver using component cables. I also have a dish VIP 612 dvr and a pioneer DVD. I am running everything through hdmi cables now. I have my denon set to the auto input feature. I receive the digital cinema surround from the DVD and roku but when I'm watching tv i only get Dolby digital. Why is that? Is there a setting I am missing? When I had my old tv hooked up I could get the digital 5.1 cicnima input. Theretically nothing should have changed so I don't understand why I am only getting Dolby digital through my dish dvr. Also, I am a novice more or less, I had magnolia theatre through bestbuy install and set up all this a few years back. Any help is much appreciated. Denon Manuel is very confusing!!!!

The Dish DVR can only output two audio types ...either stereo 2.0 or Dolby Digital 5.1 so not really sure what your issue is?

Thanks JD but I think maybe it is possible. I just noticed this morning we were watching a nick jr program, I recorded it about a month back and the display changed from Dolby digital to Dolby PLII cinema. So something must be working right.....but, shouldn't nfl games, sporting events etc. be in dobly plII cinema as well?

Ah ... now I understand what you are asking about. The DD PLII - Cinema surround mode is a 5.1 simulation mode that can be selected on the AVR when you want to simulate 5.1 from a stereo source. With a Dolby Digital 5.1 signal there is no simulation required as all 5.1 channels are present.
