I am in the process of getting DIRECTV for the first time. In researching options, I noticed that some satellite receivers have digital audio ouput capability and some don't. Since I have a 6.1 setup in the same room, I wanted to tie it in with satellite receiver. My question is really how much programming is broadcast in Dolby Digital? Is it only PPV? How are the music channels, DD or not? Three times on the phone with the DIRECTV rep I questioned if the receivers I would be getting (she couldn't give me brand/model info) have digital audio output and was assured that they would...I still am not convinced. The deal was free so I figured the worst case was that I would have to buy a different receiver anyway. Any help you can offer this neophyte would be appreciated.
