I just bought the Humax 8000 Freeview box with 80GB hard disk and I do like it. Can anyone help with 2 questions? 1. Is it supposed to go cha-cha-cha after switching on (I am guessing that this is the HD but it pays to be sure). 2. More important. I have the sound going to the receiver using the two standard red/white stereo outputs, but this receiver does optical out too. Does the optical option give a noticeably better sound quality than the stereo even though there is no 5.1 signal? I would be surprised if it did, but otherwise there seems to be little point including it since no Freeview stations offer 5.1 to my knowledge. Thanks!
