Or maybe I should just go get a beer, turn on the DVD and watch another LotR movie?


Always a good choice.

Why do you have a digital/analog unit? If your TV is less than two years old it has a digital tuner. Check the manual.

Question: does Dolby or some kind of 5.1 signal get broadcast with the digital TV signal?

The basic answer is yes but not all stations transmit at 5.1. Phone the station, talk with the head engineer. Chances are it’s a Dolby 2.0 but maybe not.

Check the back of the satellite receiver. You should have an input from the satellite head and a separate input for a TV antenna. Depends on the model but you should have both.
