    My Sony 545 defaults to PCM when I'm not on a 5.1 DTV channel. Does anyone know how to fix this? I want it to go to Dolby Surround.

    You CAN'T fix this, becasue AFAIK, it isn't a problem. Your receiver sees the PCM signal, and selects what it thinks is appropriate. If you are not getting a Dolby surround signal (which most broadcasts are not), it will switch to PCM. You will have to "force" it to DPL/PLII.
