6 ancillary questions

Can PCM do surround sound?

PCM doesn’t support surround sound. No wireless audio support. Digital optical and coaxial output has limited capabilities with PCM. PCM can only use a two-channel signal.

Should I set my TV to PCM or auto?

If using stereo, go with PCM.

If using surround, go with PCM unless you can’t due to the cable, and then use DD so that you get all the surround channels for your speakers.

Why is PCM louder than Dolby?

PCM is uncompressed raw audio. Dolby Digital is compressed audio (somewhat like an mp3), that is essentially the PCM version, and compressed in a lossy manner.

So in general PCM will sound better, since the Dolby Digital version is made from it.

Should I use PCM?

You should set your TV to PCM if you don’t have a home theater system or a soundbar and you have to only rely upon the TV’s speakers.

Lacking a receiver, Bitstream will decode the sound and will be great for your Blu-ray player and more.

Does PCM support Dolby Atmos?

PCM will decode the 7.1 or 5.1 core only and bypass the Atmos encoding.

Dolby Atmos is metadata that rides on top of Dolby Digital Plus or Dolby TrueHD which provides the codes for height channels in a Dolby Atmos-compatible surround sound setup.

Why would the sound suddenly stop working on my TV?

Check the audio settings on your TV and connected devices.

Turn off and unplug your TV and connected devices.

Inspect the TV cables and ports, then check the ones on your devices as well.
