Ive just had Sky+ installed after trying to live with the Pace Twin for the last five months, and on initial impressions its hard to believe they are essentially similar products, Ive just returned the Twin to Pace for a refund, since Ive had enough of its quirks, and the imminent scrapping of the £10 Sky+ sub was too good to resist. As I said, my first impressions are very good, much more stable and versatile. The fact that there is actually stuff I want to record on Sky as opposed to whats on Freeveiw does of course make it seem much more useful as well. But, and of course there has to be a but doesnt there? I have a problem with the Dolby Digital and the Sky+ box. I have the V2 box connected via optical to my Pioneer VSA-AX10, and the Sky+ set to DD in the sound menu. If the film is in Dolby Surround, then it plays back fine via optical, through the amp, and also through the TV, via SCART. But if the film is DD then sometimes there is no output via the amp or the TV. When this happens then there is no sound on Sky Movies Premier 1, 2 and 3 (the channels which carry DD). I also had this happen the first time I played a recording in DD. All other channels are fine and if I change the output in the Sound Menu from DD to Normal then everything is ok. The only way to restore DD is to pull the plug on the box and restart; this has worked every time so far, but is not ideal. So is this a known bug with the V2 box, am I doing something wrong, or do I have a faulty box?
