Any Time/Warner digital boxes output PCM?

Howdy All,

First of all, "yes, I know AVS forum" would be a good place to post this! But I,m "right here, right now", so here ya go............

I would like to use the 24bit/192K DAC in my Quad 99 CDP to improve my digital audio from my Time/Warner cable tv service. I do enjoy some of the music channels and would like to see if there is a benefit to having the DACs in my Quad 99 CDP decode the digital output from my digital STB. However, my current digital STB, PACE DC550P, appears to only output Dolby Digital AC-3 output.

Does anyone know if any of the supported T/W HDTV Digital STB's can be configured to output PCM so I can use my DAC?

Thanks and Enjoy,

Your are correct. It will not down-mix anything to PCM. It only outputs DD (5.1 or even 2.1 sometimes) via either the coax or toslink.
