HD Sound

Hello. This topic may have been covered but here goes. I have a Sky HD box connected to a Sony Amp with an optical cable. When I used to watch some HD programs, the blue light on the amp used to light up showing HD sound, but nowadays it does not light up . Can anyone help please.

RE: HD Sound

When you say HD sound, what are you referring to? Do you mean Dolby Digital 5.1? If so, programmes are definitely still broadcast in this, so you probably need to check your settings on both the Sky box and the AV receiver.

However, true HD sound (e.g. Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD Master Audio) wouldn't come from Sky - it's not broadcast in that format.

RE: HD Sound

:doh: Thanks . No settings have been altered from before. It's just that when the blue light came on the Amp on HD movies, BBC HD programmes like Jools Holland, Wildlife etc. the sound was very clear, now the light does not come on any more.
