    I have just had sky+, bear with me.
    I have been to Audio and selected DD, I went to sky movies 1, harry potter was on, pressed "i", DD on banner, when playing back it was in pro logic, couldn't change it to DD, using HTR 5540 Yamaha amp, sky+ V1.

    How are you connecting to your amp? You need to use a digital optical cable to get DD 5.1.

    You will also need to make sure your amp is set to receive it and not set to Pro Logic.

    If you have done both the above check another film as I did discover one the other day that was advertised in DD but I only got Pro Logic!!

    I am not using an optical, that must be the reason, any cheapies for sale?
    A guy in work told me about an xbox/ps2 optical would work fine, is this true?

    an optical lead with the correct ends will work fine. or if your equipment supports it - a digital coaxial lead is better.
