Onkyo HT-S3300 No 5.1 Surround Sound Audio

I can get sound from the center, middle left, middle right, and sub-woofer speakers, but nothing from the 2 5.1 surround speakers. I have the receiver set to only Speakers A turned on and Speakers B turned off. If I press the display button on the Onkyo remote, the receiver display will show "Dolby D 5.1" for many of the channels. Here's my setup:


Cable box HDMI cable to the TV.
Optical cable from the TV to the Onkyo Receiver.


The cable box has audio settings of HDMI, Dolby Digital, or Other. I have it set to HDMI, as the other 2 give no audio. The user manual seems poorly written and hard to understand. And the Onkyo menu settings (blue screen) are not intuitive. So what's something I can try to trouble shoot this?


I know all the speakers are hooked up and working, cause when I adjust the level settings in the Onkyo menu, I can hear the test white noise from every speaker.


Any suggestions? Thanks.

Now here's something odd I just figured out. The TV also has a setting called Digital Audio Out. The options are:

  • Auto
  • PCM
  • Dolby D
  • Bitstream

I have no idea what these mean, but I noticed that if I put it on "PCM" (whatever that means), I get sound from all the speakers. But not on "Dolby D". So how come PCM works, but not "Dolby D"?

Does anyone on here understand all of this? Everything seems so confusing.
