sky hd - Sound over HDMI


Active Member
I hope so! It is the stupidest thing. I don't have optical input on my receiver and everything is by HDMI, and so I only get stereo sound. Maybe it is because they can barely get 2-chan sound to synch and so they figure 5 channels is just impossible?

An amp without optical input, blimey I know HDMI is the in thing but that's penny pinching to the ninth degree:)

No issues with sync and the lack of 5.1 on HDMI has been from day1 not just over the recent firmware issues that have plagued certain models of SKY+HD.
