    Apologies if this has been answered before but on my phone and struggling to search...!

    Can the Apple TV 2 send Dolby 5.1 to amp via hdmi only? Or like Sky for example does it need optical too?

    Will be to watch rented HD movie from iTunes if that makes any difference.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, just what I wanted to hear!

    Didn't want to waste 20 mins pulling out all the tv benches to find I need optical when I've used them all!

    It's proper HDMI out, not like the crappy Sky boxes!
