Sky + only playing in stereo via optical on my AV amp!

I've just realised that most of my Sky channels (Except Sky1 HD!) are only being received in stereo!
What the ....! :eek:

I have my Sky HD box outputting in DD stereo via optical to my Marantz AV receiver which is set to auto.
In the past this setting would set my AV amp to playback either in Prologic II surround or DD 5.1 surround depending on the channel.
But at the moment all my channels except Sky 1 HD are only playing back in DD stereo!

Anyone know what is going on? :confused:

Please if anyone can help I would be very happy as in the past I used to receive surround on my old Sky + box with no problem, and I don't expect to have any problems with my Sky + HD upgrade.

Thanks, Bill.
