    I just signed back up to get hbo on my direct tv. Why are the DD movies coming in on 2/0 with no rear, center, or surrounds(just started watching this am). Are these just particular movies and if so, why 2/0 as opposed to 3/2? Tell my it is not my av or sat receiver. Thanks!

    If they are older HBO movie's they will only be 2.0...Most of the movies coming to HBO in the last 6 months are 5.1

    Only newer movies that have premiered on HBO since they started offering Dolby Digital will be 3/2. I think "Battlefield Earth" has the honor of having been the first 3/2 movie on HBO. Anything earlier than that will be 2/0.

    Switch on ProLogic decoding to get center & rear speakers active.
