Sony amp and Sky HD


Standard Member
Dear All

Can anyone suggest a suitable connection setup for my 2400ES amp and new Sky+ HD box?

I have bought a cambridge coaxial cable so I can plug the Sky box straight into my amp, but so far (maybe based on what shows I've been trying on Sky) I haven't been able to get the surround sound effect on live broadcasts.

Sky only broadcasts Dolby Digital on some channels... mainly Sky movies etc. and sometimes sky1 but only for certain programs.... think E4 sometimes too

I use an optical cable on my sky+ box to the receiver, but if your skyHD box has coaxial out then that should be OK
