Old fashioned? I'd call that the modern way!
The majority of my viewing is OTA too.
I'm not sure what about your setup would be taking it down to 2 channel. But that's way off topic for this thread anyway. I'd encourage you to find out if the signal in your area is actually DD or already downmixed. It may turn out to be a pretty small hardware upgrade needed on your end to get the proper mix.
