    Hi Guys,

    Just in the process of setting up my SKY HD box and note in the settings there is only an option to select DD over optical. Is this the case or does it automatically have 5.1 over HDMI?

    Cheers

    You cannot get 5.1 over HDMI with Sky HD.

    Thanks, how will it work then if I connect to the receiver via HDMI for picture and also connect an optical?

    Also don't seem to have channel 4 or channel 5 via sky, any ideas?

    Thanks again
