    The POWERNODE 2i does not decode multichannel audio.

    It simply plays back the PCM 2.1 alternate audio channel. If you want DOLBY, you want a PULSE SOUNDBAR.

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I changed my TV config to send only PCM to the Powernode (regardless of the original encoding format) and I hear stereo audio now for all my videos. Which is all I needed. Please direct Crutchfield to update their product description of the Powernode since it isn't true. 

    This Powernode replaced FIVE pieces of equipment in my cabinet (amp, pre-amp, dac, bluetooth reciever, sonos connect).

    I love living in the future!
