I have a Playbase connected to a Panasonic FX750 TV via optical, 2 play one's as surround and a sub. i have a Virign Media Tivo box which has Dolby Digital as the audio output.

I notice that the output volume through the tv/virgin box is quite low compared to when I stream music, which is not going though the tv.

On the Tv sound menu there is an HDMI Audio Format giving you the option of Bitstream or PCM. When I chose PCM the volume is a lot higher than on Bitstream.

My question is, If I use PCM will I get Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound?

Thanks
