      Sound @ Dolby D!!

      Hi
      New to forums so go easy.... just got sky HD and hooked it all up fine. I have a problem with the sound out put (settings>sound>digital audio output) when I set this to DOLBY D the sound drops out completely. I have optical cable from Amstrad box HD to my Bluray HT kit 5:1 (Panasonic BT 100) all the sound works fine when set to "normal" but I am unsure if its 5:1???
      please help........ I have also checked the programme is transmitting DD

      When the Sky box is set to Dolby D, you will get Dolby 5.1 when transmitted, and when there's no DD 5.1, the Sky box gives a stereo output. If your Panasonic kit gives no sound with a DD 5.1 input, it may be something in the setup causing it, or you could have a faulty Panasonic box. You should also try the output from the Sky box on another DD decoder, if you can beg, borrow or steal one (or if you have another one in the house).

      cheers, I checked the program was transmitted (DD sign) and not a peep!!. However when set to normal I think it is 5:1 (later with Jools Holland) as it sounds fantastic!!! could be a quirk with the HT kit perhaps....... I will keep trying

      thanks anyways
