All of the Dish premium channels will be in 5.1. The output varies with the rest of the cable lineup. I don't have Hopper/Joey but I do have the older Dish ViP 722. The only audio option for that series DVR is Dolby Digital or PCM. Denon AVR shows both input and output audio, so a channel like HDNet Movies will vary depending on the movie but almost all Showtime/HBO stuff is in 5.1. Not sure about your Denon but mine shows the output audio information depending on what I have selected ( between DD, DTS, THX, or DSX. )
Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 75" 850C, Oppo UDP-203, Roku Ultra.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).
PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB16-Ultra sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.
