Great TV, but help needed with Optical Output Format!
I just picked up a 52XV545U last night for a song on a sale that started today. So far it looks great (deep blacks and good detail on SD programming), but I'm run into a quandry that has kept me up all night. Perhaps one of you Regzanites might have a solution:
I've read the pertinant parts of the manual inside out and backwards, and no matter what I try I cannot get "Optical Output Format" in the Audio Setup menu to become "un-greyed out". I know that the TV can output audio through the digital optical output in either PCM or Dolby Digital formats, but I can't seem to change the setting to Dolby Digital. My receiver (a Technics SA-DA 10 - an oldy but a goody) requires the Dolby Digital feed to produce 5.1 surround sound, but the default PCM feed only allows for 2 channel listening.
In case it makes a difference, my setup has HDMI cables from the Shaw HD PVR, a DVD player and an Xbox into the back of the TV and a digital optical cable from the TV to the receiver.
Please help! This is more important than sleep right now.

Reason: Pricing removed.
