    Sorry hope this hasn't been asked b4! :oops:

    Does NTL provide any dolby digital or dts sound service. Having just got ntl installed on saturday the sales rep led me to believe that 5.1 was available. All I can see on the back of my pace (model 2000 I think) is an anologue left and right there is no optical or coaxial :'(

    Many thanks
    Martin

    No - you can't get 5.1 from NTL.

    Who was the sales rep?

    If it was someone from NTL I'd be tempted to ring them up and complain.

    You might be able to get some free channels to comfort you for your distress!

    Count yourself lucky to have the analogue audio outputs... The newer NTL STB's don't even have that..! As long as NTL supply the hardware as part of the package, it's very unlikely they will ever broadcast 5.1 audio or offer a PVR option IMO...
