Why can't I get the DD from the movies on TV? I have connect the BT VIsion via HDMI to the KDL W4000 then from it back to the Amp via Optical cable BUT no DD just Pro Logic. Thanks for any advice.
I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure they're not broadcast with a DD soundtrack. So it's plain old stereo I'm afraid.I have my BT Vision connected straight to my A/V amp via HDMI, and it's still the same. I think you only get a proper audio track if you rent HD films via PPV.
Hi-Fi: Arcam A85, P85, CD192. B&W 602S3, PV1, Grado SR125, Atlas Titan, Hyper 2.0.
A/V: Sony KDL-V40A12U, BDP-S760, Humax Youview, Onkyo TX-SR875, B&W MT30 7.1, QED HDMI-P, S.A XT
The only way you will get DD from broadcasts to you TV is from Sky Virgin Cable etc. Through Sky + or HD box its HDMI Component Optical and Coaxial
ÿI guessed that might be the case. Anyway thanks very much for the info.
It won't get you surround, but you might get better sound from the BT Vision box if you connected its digital output direct to your amp, rather than going through the TV. It might even give a cleaner signal for the Pro-Logic processing to work on.
And as for surround, BT says:"At the moment BT Vision only supplies stereo sound. However, we are continually working to improve our audio technology, and hope in the future to support more advanced features like surround sound."

That old chestnut.
We live in hope as that may make me leave Virgin...if they don't do it first, of course.
