Thought I would add my son's comments.

He's correct that given a stereo feed, you have to select PL2, and your
onkyo does this for you automatically so you don't need to.

What I'm saying is that I think BBC1HD is broadcasting some shows in 5.1
but where the centre, rears and sub channel are silent. Ie they should
be broadcasting 2.0 so that the onkyo can choose to apply PL2
processing, but by sending a stereo feed in 5.1 (where L,R have content
but not C,SL,SR,Sub are silent) they're doing it wrong.

Whether you can force PL2 processing on a 5.1 feed I don't know... And
what it would do when you get a real 5.1 feed I don't know...
