Audio settings sky HD to sound bar


Active Member
Hi all , I have sky HD ( not sky q ) connected to TV via HDMI then optical from TV to sound bar .
HDMI output from sky box to tv is Dolby digital ( option of Dolby digital or normal )
Optical output from TV to bar is Dolby digital ( option of pcm or Dolby digital ) .

I presume I have this correct ?

If I change to pcm on TV settings the volume coming out of the bar sounds quieter .

You are better off connecting to the soundbar from the TV's arc/earc port via HDMI. However, as you've not quoted the TV or the soundbar's make and model, it is hard to make recommendations...
