    I've got a Sky+ box and using a Sony DAVSC5 all-in-1 theatre system. When I watching a movie broadcast 5.1 I'm not getting this through my speakers. I've got an optical cable between the Sky+ and the DAVS player, but still the same.

    Has anybody else come across this, or found a solution :smashin:

    Need to set the sky setup to output Dobly digital in menu -> system setings, -> sound settings -> dolby D. That should work.

    Thanks Steve, sorry I should have mentioned that I've already tried that.

    Have you checked the settings on your Sony ?

    It may need to be set to "auto" or something similar (I've not got a Sony so I don't know........) to correctly decode the 5.1 signal - otherwise it might be playing it back in stereo or Pro Logic..........

    Worth a try anyway.
