    Most (if not all) TV's will only pass a surround signal if you're using the internal tuner via antenna. If you feed it optical in from the Tivo & then pass it back to the receiver, it will only be 2 channel stereo. What you need to do is bypass the TV and hook the Tivo's audio directly into the receiver via optical.
    The Blu Ray should be passing audio correctly since it's built in. Keep in mind that surround sound is NOT all speakers playing the same sounds at once. Depending on the source, there could be very little rear speaker activity. They usually only kick in when there's supposed to be something behind you in the sound field.
