    I just completed setting up MCE pc and hooked it up to my home theatre
    system via the SPDIF output of my audio card.

    Sound is pretty good and when I play DVD's I can see that Windows Media
    Player recognize the DVD as Dolby Digital.
    However my reciever doesn't recognize the source as Dolby Digital.

    When I connect a DVD player to the same input, with the same DVD, my
    reciever then switch to Dolby Digital.

    I read on the MS site that I need to configure the MCE decoder through
    Settings > DVD > Audio
    However when I click on Audio... I get a message saying "Not Designed For
    TV". When I click on it, I only get a small blibk and the screen is back to
    the DVD setup.

    Am I missing a decoder that needs to be installed separately? Where can I
    get one?

    I would appreciate any advice.
