Dolby digital ex is better, stop whinging.
No signature worth mentioning...
Mmmm - an explaination of the various and many Dolby surround formats would have been interesting maybe?

iv'e never had this come up before on sky,just dolby digital.
so dolby digital ex is better than pcm.....??
on a google search it said dd ex was an older version,was just wondering that's all
No, DD uses lossy compression. LPCM is uncompressed audio.
No, who mentioned pcm? DD ex is better than DD.
This stuff's ten years old, google it!
Forgive my ignorance but I think GSB was less interested in Dolby technology but more with the Sky signal and how his receiver interprets the various surround formats.
But I know nuffin'.
Was blank - now works fine
