Denon 4308A With Sky HD Dolby Digital


Active Member

I have the Sky HD set up to output Dolby Digital in the menu and via the coax cable to my Denon AVR 4308 selected on the Denon via the assign menu to accept the coax digital signal. The thing is when I have the unit playing it does not show on the Denon as Dolby Digital it shows as "Dolby PL II x Cinema" when I check it on the screen.

Does anyone know why, or whether this correct?

Are you watching a Dolby Digital Broadcast? Not all of Sky is in DD, best check is the BBC HD preview which is 5.1

If its still not working then make sure input mode is set to opt and not auto.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, just checked BBC HD, you are right it is now showing Dolby Digital on the main display. What threw me was I was watching ITV HD which on the synopsis said it was dolby digital but it must have been 2 channel.
