Arrow Silly sound mode question

I've just got round to setting my home cinema system back up after sending my FS2-AV Speakers + Sub back to Mission because they were broken. I've reconnected all the wires etc. to the amplifier (a Marantz SR4200) and everything seems to be working ok.

Initially I couldn't get any sound at all from the subwoofer but trying again with a full reset of the amp / sub a couple of days late seems to solved that problem - for now at least. However, there is another: everytime I select a sound mode other that DD or DTS (say Prologic I / II) the amplifier plays this sound in PCM mode. I've no expert in this field, as you may have guessed, but isn't PCM some stereo mode or something - i.e. not one for a standard 5.1 setup? Why won't my amp go back to how it used to be - playing Prologic TV in the regular, non-PCM mode and does this affect the sound output in any way?

Thanks in advance for any help.
