    When watching movies on sky with DD there are sometimes sound dropouts{not on dvd's, so it's not speakers etc},and the same on normal tv programs.At present I am using an optical cable approx £20 worth,would a better cable solve the problem.Please advise if you can,thanks.

    in my limited experience MAR you could try another link for the sound but to be honest i have the same optical link and altho dont seem to have the same extent of problem as you do i do have it !!
    i think imho the problem maybe sky not your link as i get all sorts of erratic behaviour from sky+ whatever links cables do dahs i use i think sky just have in built glitches with getting both picture and sound to your screen by whatever means .
    a mate of mine whos a sky engineer has told me that alsorts of things affect the sky signal from weather to little green people from different planets to baking your cakes with the wrong flour !!!! lol
    i just live with it as , as youve said DVD on our system is very very good so its not your kit its sky .
    i maybe wrong cos as ive been told on countless occasions by the missus im invariably wrong !!!!

    cheers for the reply,I got a profigold optical cable and it seems to have solved the problem,but I agree about sky,there's probally some glitch somewhere.
    ps.and as for the mangle,I reckon I could use that easier than the washing m/c.
