Digital Surround Sound from Cox Contour box?

I have recently tried desperately to get Dolby Digital 5.1Surround Sound to work from my Cox Countour. I have the box connected to my XBOX ONE via HDMI, which is connected to my Sony Receiver via Optical Cable. The Xbox One games, movies and apps all work, playing with 5.1SS. But when watching TV via the Cox Contour Box, I only get sound out of the front speakers.

I have the correct audio settings in teh XBOX (obviously), and have gotten into the Cox Settings>Audio> and set the "Expert Mode to the Dibly Digital 5.1 via HDMI output...but still only get a stereo feed from the speakers. What am i missing here?

  • What are the following audio setting on your Xbox?

    HDMI Audio
    Optical Audio
    Bitstream Format

    Just a stab in the dark but I've read if you have headphones connected to your Xbox, the audio output defaults to 2-channel stereo.
