    i have just bought a Sony DAV IS50 and have connected it to my tv via a HDMI lead. i do not have the slightest idea how to connect the sky+ to the IS50. i have a digital optical cable but i cant see a connection at the back of the sky+ box or even on the back of the IS50.

    Can someone please help me???????

    The optical connection is very small (6-8mm square) and is basically a little door that opens when the optical cable if pushed in. It can only go in one way. In the Sky box service menu "Sound" switch digital on.
    Sky box picture setting should be RGB not PAL and 16:9 not 4:3.

    Looking at the back of your control unit the optical out is the fifth hole from the right.
