How is your sky box connected to your amp? You need to use an optical cable if you want 5.1 sound as it will only send stereo sound via the HDMI.
Also what AV rciever do you have?

Yes, you will need to assign the optical input you are using to the HDMI input you are using for sky. You will also need to tell the amp to use the optical connection instead of the HDMI (often done using the input button to cycle between HDMI, digital and analgue inputs).
