This is yet another example of why my mantra in these situations is "IT'S THE SOURCE!!"
Other than putting the receiver on "AUTO" for Input Mode, there are no settings on the receiver that can affect this! The receiver will decode what you give it, it cannot tell your Blu Ray player or DVD player or whatever what audio track to send. (not picking on you wadek, just pointing it out again for the "lurkers"
So in any of these situations -- your Xbox 360 isn't giving 5.1 DD, your Blu Ray player isn't lighting up "True HD", your cable box will only output stereo, etc. CHECK YOUR SOURCE and make sure the audio settings are correct!
