    I have my TV Drive connected to my amp via an optical cable but can't seem to find any channels that have 5.1 sound.

    I previously had a Sky+ and many of the movies were broadcast with 5.1 and I expected to find similar with the TV Drive.

    AFAIK the only broadcaster of DD 5.1 is sky.

    There is 5.1 content on Teleport and BBC HD. We can presume with some confidence that as time goes by and newer films are purchased more of the content will be 5.1. I seem to remember Skys 5.1 content coming a while after the launch of their 5.1 capable Sky+ service.
