V+ Box surround sound Issues


Standard Member
Hi all, today I upgraded to TV XL and had my box fitted to my Sony KDL4000 and Sony HTiS 100 surround sound amp. I've tried all the HD channels and i'm only getting 2.0 stereo output to my amp. The amp and the V+ box are connected via HDMI cable, not the supplied one but a half decent one that I already had. I've been into the settings on the box but cannot find any way to get 5.1 which is what I expected.

Any ideas to help me please?

Not all the HD channels broadcast 5.1 surround and the ones that do don't do it all the time! Your best bet is BBC HD they tend to broadcast it more than most.

chuck it on BBC HD and it shoudl be in 5.1
If not then go into the settigns and switch 'HDMI audi Overide' to 'ON'

this will send 5.1 over HDMI and Optical
