I have an MX-132, and I don't believe you can do that. I tried to figure that out before.

I was thinking about it more last night, and the best solution I can come up with is split my digital signal to two inputs on the MX-132. Keep one set at 'Stereo', and the other on 'Cinema', and then switch between inputs when I play music or movies. Unless there is a HEX code for my universal remote that will let met tell the MX-132 to go directly to STEREO or CINEMA, the original remote only lets you cycle through surround modes.
Just talked to Chuck, he recommended I assign the same digital input two two inputs (CD, DVD). Then have one of those inputs default to STEREO, and the other default to CINEMA. Then all I will have to do is switch inputs on the MX-132 when changing from music to movies.
I was worried that cycling through the output formats each time was going to be a deal-breaker for me, but I think that's a do-able work around.
