    I have had Sky+ since just before Christmas, and I think I have only seen 1 film in DD5.1. Alot of them are DD broadcasts but only 2.0 or 3.1.

    Am I going mad or has anybody else noticed this?

    I've only seen The Hunted in DD 2.0

    All the rest which are advertised as DD 5.1 are transmitted as such.

    :blush: I think I'll read my Amp instructions when I get home then. I've definitely got the sky+ set to output DD when broadcast.

    only sky movies 1, 2 and 3 have dolby digital 5.1 of the sky movie channels (as well as box office) but everytime i have viewed one from these chanels it has been true 5.1. so maybe your watching sky movies 4 upwards thats why your not getting 5.1
