If Dolby Digital is selected, the source needs to be Dolby Digital to be passed through (PCM might also get passed through, not sure). If it's DD+, DTS or anything else it probably won't get passed through (and if it did, the Playbar doesn't understand those formats anyway). If you select PCM then anything will be passed through, because it should be converted to a stereo audio format.
Hey qballtbeb - There's a different thread going on that fits this description. Take a look and then add a comment there.
Thanks! That thread is exactly my issue.
