Sound issues with wireless surround speakers with optical cable connection

When connected with an optical cable, why am I not hearing sound from my wireless surround speakers on some programming but not all?
This has to do with the programming's recorded audio format. The bar decodes sound information in its native format. That means that if the programming is recorded in stereo (Front Left & Front Right), then it will be played back in stereo. If the programming is recorded in Dolby Digital, then it will be played back through all of the speakers.
