    I don't think that there as many TV programs with 5.1 Dolby Surround, but now all DVDs have surround.

    If you have only one connection, connect the DVD. You can always connect the stereo out from the Dish and use virtual surround

    i think he bose has coax digital inputs, i would use the fiber cable for the dvd and the digital coax from the sta box...there will nto be much of a difference though

    If the bose has both an optical and a coaxial input for digital, it should be able to use both simultaneously.

    If it only has one or the other, then I guess its made your decision for you!
