TV Surround modes


Standard Member
Newbie question - I'm looking to get the Yamaha 757 receiver. What surround sound modes can I expect from TV transmissions and is there any difference between analogue and digital tuners?


With the exception of a couple of Sky channels that do transmit DD 5.1 on a few films/programs, all TV is transmitted in plain stereo. Your only options for surround are any DSP modes on the receiver such as Dolby Pro logic 2, DTS Neo 6 etc. This is true for both analogue and any of the digital platforms.



Dolby pro logic IIx, will re-ceate a 7.1 surround sound from any 2-channel or 5.1 source.

With Pro Logic IIx, for instance, the Surround (Rear) channels are in stereo (only mono with Pro Logic) and playback covers the full frequency range .

Many of the new amps have this, and it creates good effects to stereo input.
