DirecTV Audio Only Comes Through in Stereo

I have my DirecTV DVR connected to the Xbox One.  Xbox goes to the AV Receiver.  DirecTV box had Dolby enabled.  Xbox is set to send Digital DTS.  The receiver indicates that it is getting a DTS signal, but I only get Front L&R audio.

If I connect the DirecTV box directly to the receiver, I get full surround.

Why is the Xbox limiting my audio?

HDMI surround sound is in beta. S/PDIF would be the current work-around. Yes, it is not ideal, but we are working on a better resolution.
