      Lightbulb How to get two hdmi outputs from the sky+hd box with different audio settings

      Does anyone know how I can get my sky+hd box to output to two hdmis one with Dolby d output and the other with normal digital audio output? I have an hdmi splitter so have split into two hdmi outputs, but I am struggling to then convert one of the outputs to a different audio type. I have a Dolby d surround system on one output and an ordinary digital tv on the other, but can get no sound on the normal TVs when sky box output is Dolby d. I need to convert it somehow. Anyone got any clue how to do this please? I have tried buying an audio converter to attach to one of the splitter outputs - this did not work.
      Any ideas gratefully received.......

      It can't be done unless you can find a specific splitter which does it for you.

      Personally I would set the sound to stereo for HDMI and connect the optical feed to the one which has surround sound. Of course not all surround systems take optical feeds.
