Make sure you update all software on your tv, blu-ray player, and set-top cable box. I made two changes on my Samsung blu-ray player bd-f5900 (changed digital output setting to the 4th menu choice - Bitstream (Re-encoded Dolby Digital) and set Downmixing Mode to Surround Compatible); and two more changes on my tv - I changed the HDMI Audio Format to Bitstream and turned HD Audio setting to On. Then, I changed a setting in my ATT dsl cable box from digital output Stereo to Surround Compatible. Now, all my Hi-Def content shows up as Dolby Digital 5.1 input on my playbar - all my 5.1 movies, netflix, etc. Sounds great!
