DTS 5.1 problem

Sorry if this was already asked in another thread.

I have WD TV Live connected to an Onkyo receiver via optical. Receiver can decode DTS … for some reason mkv files with DTS audio is played only 2.1,  not 5.1 … 

Can anybody help please ?

Is your AUDIO mode set to DIGITAL?

yes it is set to DIGITAL

problem solved
it seems my 7-year-old Onkyo’s optical input no. 2 can only deliver 2.1 … years have taken some from it :) 

optical input no.1 can perfectly deliver 5.1 !

thanks anyway Tony
