I just updated my system and am now a bit confused. The old hook up would display a red bordered "Dolby Digital" box when playing DVD or recieving the proper signal via the cable box. The new set up has a LCD 46" 630 Samsung series TV. I have an HDMI cable from the cable box to the TV, an HDMI cable from the BluRay to the TV and an optical cable from the TV to the TX DS575 reciever. I no longer get the red box, I now get "PCM Digital" and Dolby Pro Logic" displayed together only. Is this typical, good, bad? I have not been able to find any info on this.

PCM The optical output terminal output studio signal in PCM form. If your digital audio system does not support Dolby Digital, select "PCM".
Dolby Digital The optical output terminal outputs audio signal in Dolby Digital form. it reproduces sound from surround program of digital.
also check the input assignment of ur dvd palyer's tv input. if it is selected as analog then change it to digital. ok
Select to suit the type of audio from the OPTICAL IN terminal on the main unit. 1 While in “D-IN” mode Press and hold [—SETUP] to select “MAIN/SAP”, “DRC” or “PCM FIX”. 2 While the selected mode is displayed Press [up, down] to make the setting. MAIN/SAP mode (Only works with Dolby Dual Mono) MAIN, SAP§, MAIN+SAP§ (stereo audio) § “SAP” = Secondary Audio Program Dynamic Range Compression DRC ON: Adjust for clarity even when the volume is low by compressing the range of the lowest sound level and the highest sound level. Convenient for late night viewing. (Only works with Dolby Digital) DRC OFF PCM FIX mode PCM ON: Select when receiving only PCM signals. PCM OFF: Select when receiving Dolby Digital and PCM signals. [Note] Audio that is input through the OPTICAL IN terminal cannot be output through the HDMI terminal.
Hi, no, this is not the normal display. It should indicate the digital sound format like DD or DTS, etc. If it is displaying PCM, this is probably due to the audio settings on your DVD player. Please provide your DVD make and model, and I will look to find the solution.
Have you tried setting the PS3 on linear PCM output instead of bitstream? The DVR 50 may not say Dolby Digital since the optical cable goes directly from the PS3 to it but you may get the surround channel output you're looking for.
Chances are that Time Warner is just plain wrong. That's what you get with free tech supp....oh, uh right. scratch that.
Your receiver seems to be receiving a 2-channel digital audio signal (PCM) from the cable HD box. With this type of input signal, you can't select Dolby Digital on the receiver.
If you have a Scientific Atlanta 8300 (or a closely similar model): Press [Settings] button on the remote twice. This will open the General Settings menu. Go to "Audio: Digital Out" and the select Dolby Digital (by hitting [-> Move Right]).
If you have another type of cable box, just review the settings menus until you find something relevant to digital audio out and avoid PCM, stereo or "down conversion", but look for Dolby Digital, DTS or "All".
Please keep in mind, that when connecting devices via HDMI cables, your box may decide it's smarter than you and reset the format of the digital audio back to PCM. This is some possibility of this occurring if the cable box or TV is unplugged and plugged back in.
If you have problems, add the cable box make and model and let me know.
I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable box..my choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.
