I have an RCA DRD450RG Dolby Digital (DD) DirecTv satellite receiver. The program guide states that the following premium channels provide DD programming: HBO East HBO West Starz East Starz West Encore Eest Encore West Showtime East Showtime West The Movie Channel (tmc) East The Movie Channel (tmc) West Out of all those, I only receive DD on HBO east and west, Starz east and Showtime east. Does DirecTv broadcast DD on the others (Starz west, both Encores, Showtime west and both tmc's), or is there something wrong with my box? I called DirecTV and was told that my model number is NOT a DD capable satellite receiver; no matter what DD insignia is on the box and what RCA tells me. I then called RCA and was told that my box is one of the latest DD models. I then was instructed to call back DirecTV to ask them to monitor the channels in question to see if they are getting them in DD or not. I have not done this because I assume it would not do me any good since I was told my receiver was not DD capable. Showtime was e-mailed about this too. I was instructed to call DirecTv. If I may try to quote Scotty on Star Trek: TOS when he told Kirk that the ship was going warp 10 in circles, "We are going nowhere really fast!". Can anyone help me out? I hope I didn't waste my money on this replacement box, and I hope that I do not have to switch to Dish to be get what I want.
