Not getting surround sound when watching Cable TV

I currently have my bitstream out set to DTS however, when watching cable, I am only getting stereo sound.  My receiver will indicate that DTS is coming through.  I do get 5.1 when watching a blu ray, playing a game, or watching netflix (assuming the movie/show has 5.1).  Does anyone have any suggestions with getting 5.1 with cable??

I get the same result when switching bitstream out to Dolby digital.  If i switched my bitstream out to 5.1, would the overall sound quality go down??
