Tivo Dolby over HDMI?

I have searched the forums and the posts I have found that sort of relate to this are quite old.

As the Tivo has been buggered by the last update and DD 5.1 is no longer working on optical output, my question is, does the Tivo transmit a DD 5.1 signal over HDMI (when transmitted by the program obviously)?

I'm intending on getting a new TV with HDMI ARC which has DD 5.1 passthrough capability which will in turn be connected to a BluRay/home cinema system that also has an ARC connection. 

Thanks.

Re: Tivo Dolby over HDMI?

In fact thinking about it and to answer my own question, in the post on Tivo DD problems I posted that I was getting an HDMI to optical converter that someone recommended, so presumably it must be transmit it on HDMI first for it to be then stripped out to optical.

DD5.1 (when transmitted) works fine over HDMI on TiVo - it is just optical that has the problem

Thanks. I needed a new TV and home cinema anyway (maybe!)
