Is it possible to get 5.1 decoding through an optical cable, or do I need to use the specific 5.1 connections in order to get that? Sorry for the lame question, but I have had various answers and would just like to clarify. I'm currently using an optical connection, but when watching a DVD, in 5.1, my multi channel decoding indicator does not light up. Is this simply a DVD/REceiver setting I missed somewhere, or do I need another connection? Thanks, Tom EDIT: I did just read through the FAQ's, and it looks like you will get 5.1 signals through an optical connection. So now my question is why does my receiver display PCM instead of multi channel decoding?
