    Ack! I just received my Dish 6000 and found out that the only Dolby Digital out is through the optical output. My receiver is about a 25 ft run up and over a door and through the woods to grandmothers house.....oops sorry. Anyone out there have success with a 25 foot optical run or find another way to get dolby digital out of the dish 6000?

    I don't think they make such a thing. I do beleive that they sell converters though. So you could run COAX that far.
