    Do you mean Dolby 3 or Dolby AC-3.

    If you mean Dolby 3 then that's something Dolby Digital TVs like Tosh have as a setting to use when you don;t have all the surround speakers etc.

    Basicaly AC-3 and Dolby Digital 5.1 can be taken to be the same. But for a really technical answer go to Dolby's website www.dolby.co.uk.

    Cheers

    It is a version of pro-logic for when you have no rear speakers - it just uses the TVs own 3 speakers (left, centre, right), rather than the two speakers used in normal stereo mode. Toshiba's 32Z17B has this, and it works very well.

    The Dolby Digital 3/2 setting appears only when there is a digital signal going into the TV's decoder.
