    Sorry for all the questions Folks :)

    Can anyone tell me if the DD optical passthrough on the DirecTivo or the Direct UltimateTV also passes a PCM bitstream--in other words if the broadcast is not in DD 5.1,if it is just DD 2.0 or 2.1,or just plain stereo will it still pass the signal so I don't have to switch back and forth between an analog connection and a digital connection.Thanks again! :)

    Yes, the toslink cable will pass PCM, when no DD is present in the bitstream.
