Does DirecTV Stream support Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound
I am an audiophile with what I consider very sophisticated components.
I have good knowledge of connections and various cables.
I have had no luck trying to reach someone at DirecTV Stream that is qualified to assist me.
Before agreeing to a 2 yr contract (which is no longer required) I emphasized the importance of DD 5.1 and was told it is available and supported which was FLASE :(
Does Direct TV Stream support 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound and if so,
what is the correct way to connect the AT&T Receiver (C71KW-400) using the OPTICAL OUT connection?
Using the Optical Out connection does the HDMI CABLE stay connected or does it get disconnected?
Does using the Optical Out Audio Output supercede the HDMI Audio if I leave the HDMI CABLE connected?
If I cannot obtain DD 5.1 sound and am going to change to a different provider.
I would greatly appreciated if someone can take the time to respond,
