    BROADCASTING BLACK HAWK DOWN WITH NO DIALOGUE!!!:mad:

    Can you believe how incompetent these people are:confused:
    There's every other channel, but no dialogue...I thought it was just the 5.1 stream. So I checked the stereo stream through scart as well and there's no speech there either.
    They've been banging their gums about this premier all week and on the night couldn't get it right...just when I thought they were getting it right too...:rolleyes: :(

    got sound through the scart no problem, but typical of sky to muck it up for amp users.

    Maybe it's 'cos my Sky+ box is sey to Dolby Digital...it's the DD track that gets downmixed to stereo...maybe it was just missing on the DD stream...:confused:

    Came in from the cinema last night, switched the film on..had dialogue on both showings (Premier 1 & 2), but was not mixed in DD, only PLII was showing on my amp..switched to Premier 3 to watch another film and Dolby Digital powered up on my amp.

    This sort of problem does not happen that often though. The thing is no one writes about the merits of anything, just the bad.

    That's spot on. I consider my Sky+ box the most important part of my av equipment and is the only part I could not do without...I have ever only had 1 failed recording...and I brought my box on December 1st 2001.
