    Hi

    Has anyone noticed that the movie channels have gone nearly silent?

    I am having to turn my amp up way too high to be able to hear them and when I go back to BBC1 it blasts my ears out.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    301-303 have gone completely silent on my sky+ when I listen through the optical connection in Dolby Digital mode. I'm hoping its a problem at sky's end rather than an ill digibox.

    Watched "Panic Room" on SM8 on Friday and the sound was very low - had to boost the DCS 313 up to volume 30 to get it clear.

    Then recorded Black Hawk Down last night and everything was back to normal.

    I'm using optical digital out from Sky+

    My SM8's fine, its 301-303 that's silent. I just phoned Sky customer support and according to them we've all got no dolby digital at the moment, tad hard to believe, I would have thought there'd be a bit more shouting on this forum if that was the case.
