    Anyone know what this might be?
    On my digital cable box onscreen options, under the audio section for the audio I can select mono, stereo, or matrix stereo .. anyone know which one I can set it to? It just has RCA hookups, nothing digital (even though the company said it could do that [​IMG])

    My cable box has this also, and I've found the best results came from STEREO instead of Matrix Stereo. That way, you're sending a pure stereo signal with no processing to your receiver (which is important for DPL/DPL2 processing). Mine also had a COMPRESSION setting, which I turned to OFF. The light and heavy compression settings made it louder, but placement of sounds was better with an uncompressed signal.

    I'm not sure, but I believe it is either a simulated stereo mix from a mono broadcast or simulated surround from a stereo broadcast.
    Hookups - perhaps is is coaxial digital?
