    5.1 sound
    I have been trying out the digi sound out via optical cable to my ancient Sherwood receiver
    the Humy box is set to multi channnel sound but when I select dolby digital, the sound seems only stereo (no middle or rear channel. non digital pro logic seems ok
    am I missing something ?
    thanks in advance for any tips

    Not all programmes are 5.1 many(most) are aac 2.0 (Stereo). The box converts aac to DD for you. Record some of the BBC-HD preview loop which is all 5.1. There's a testcard with a 5.1 channel check built in.

    Ok ta ,As the telly is offset from the speakers, it sounds odd in stereo (without the centre speaker)
    I'll have an other experiment this evening
