Ok I'm having two problems.

1 I can't get sky HD to play in 5.1 dts or dd enough the program says it's been broadcast with DD. I only get 2.0 stereo sound.

2 I can't get my popcorn hour a-200 to play LPCM. I'm playing full blu ray ISO files and remuxed blu rays with DTSHD. When it plays on my system it only plays in 5.1 DTS OR DD. When I press the info button on my popcorn player it says it's playing DTS-HD but my amp isn't showing LPCM.

my sky box is set to play digital sound. My popcorn hour is set to play HDMI audio with PASSTHROUGH for all audio formats.

My htas5 is set to play hdmi PASSTHROUGH, acr is off, dual mono is set to main.

Sky and popcorn hour connected via hdmi
Please help it's driving my crazy.

Have you connected via the Optical digital out?

Sky will only output in 5.1 via optical out.

Sounds like your are sending bitstream audio which the Sony cannot decode. Try setting the popcorn Hour to decode the audio

Well that explains that one, thanks.

Just need to sort out my popcorn hour problem now.
