      Darts in UHD / DOLBY ATMOS

      Yesterday I was watching in UHD and listening in Dolby ATMOS but today can't get ATMOS for some reason. I've also noticed the Sky sports darts UHD logo on the top corner is not showing today - anyone else experiencing this?

      Re: Darts in UHD / DOLBY ATMOS

      Live World Championship Darts will be broadcast on Sky UHD1 as follows:

      Thu 13 Dec 1830-2300
      Fri 14 Dec 1230-1630
      Fri 14 Dec 1900-2300

      And because of Football, on Sky UHD2 as follows:

      Sat 15 Dec 1230-1630
      Sat 15 Dec 1900-2300
      Sun 16 Dec 1230-1630
      Sun 16 Dec 1900-2300

      So it's because football was showing instead on Saturday lunchtime and both Premier League matches on the afternoon of Sunday 16th. Guess it's too much trouble for Sky to switch the darts back to Sky UHD2 after the Premier league matches have ended?

      Re: Darts in UHD / DOLBY ATMOS

      Hi again lincoln. You just click on the red button on the channel you are watching and it automatically picks up the UHD feed if there is one available. However behind the scenes Sky point the red button feeds to 2 different transponders for UHD. (SID 9000) is UHD1 and (SID 9002) is UHD2

      You can actually tune into those feeds manually by going into your Sky Q Settings

      11.758 H SR 29500 FEC 8/9 DVB-S2 QPSK is UHD1

      12.324 V SR 29500 FEC 8/9 DVB-S2 QPSK is UHD2
