Anyone getting Dolby Digital 5.1 on DirecTV?

When I tune into a movie or station on DirecTV and the station reads that the program is in Dolby Digital....what does that mean? Is it 2.0, 5.1 or what? My processor reads that it is playing in Dolby Digital but only the two main front speakers are active? Should I be getting 5.1?

I too get 5.1 Dolby Digital from DirecTV using HDMI. You may need to go to the audio section of the setup menu and select it.

Dsremer and Dbphd, ......your advice was spot on and it worked perfectly. I can't believe all these years that I've been missing out on great sounding television just because I didn't go to the setup menu and correct it. Well......you live and learn.

thanks,
