does the bbc one coverage carry dolby digital 5.1 on freesat?
Panasonic 42VT30 Plasma, Denon AVR 3310, Opp BD93, MA Radius 225HD left/centre/right, MA Radius 90HD surrounds, RSw12 sub, Harmony 1100 remote, Project RPM5 Turntable
It is certainly capable of carrying a 5.1 signal where apporpriate (not all content is broadcast in surround sound). Not all Freesst kit is capable of decoding the signal, however, as we've covered off in the past.

thanks Clare, on my Panasonic VT30, i get Dolby 5.1 from BBC HD (when they show repeats of the F1) but only 2.0 when they show the race live on BBC1 HD...
