Which setting is Dolby Digital.
The settings are as follows..PL11 Movie, Neo:6 cinema, TV Logic, All Channel Stereo, Full Mono, TheaterDimensional, Direct, Mono...
I have the amp connected to TV via HDMI out and sky hd connected to amp via HDMI and optical cable..... Is this correct or do u know any tips to improve sound... I've no subwoofer yet
Thnx

Dolby Digital isn't a setting or mode, it is a format. You'll only get Dolby Digital if the actual content is encoded with it.

Ah rite ok.. So is my set up correct?

From what you've posted yes, but have you assigned the audio coming into the receiver via the optical connection to the HDMI input associated with the SKY box? You also need to configure the SKY box's audio output to Dolby Digital via its settings.

Ok.... I think that's it now. In the Digital Audio menu I've assigned optical 1 to cable/Satellite & changed Sky accordingly.
Thanks again.
Now I just need a Subwoofer.
Is there any way to improve bass until such times

You are forced to use the front stereo pair for reproduction of Low Frequency Effects if there's no sub present. You are also left no alternative other than using the front pair to handle frequencies from other speakers designated as being not full range. There's little or anything you can do in terms of bass management without a sub.
