I have purchased a ble ray dvd home cinema system bdv-e280 from amazon.co.uk. I have connected my sky+hd box and tv to the system via standard HDMI cables and also connected the sky+hd box to the system via a digital optical cable.

However I cant get the 5.1 surround sound along with the picture as the sound comes via the hdmi cable and is oly 2 channel. According to the manual European models have the option to select seperate sources for picture and audio but mines doesnt seem to have the option.

Help!

Welcome to Agoraquest!  There may be a sky+hd box setting that determines whether or not the digital optical output is active.  There probably is also a setting that determines whether or not the HDMI output includes Dolby Digital 5.1.  Check with your provider if you can't figure it out for yourself.

Thanks for replying jehill.

The sky+ box does indeed transmit beautiful surround sound but I can only get it by setting the home theatre to 'TV' and it doesnt show any picture. If I select 'HDMI' i get the picture but the sound is only two channel.

I am trying to find a way of getting the bdv-e280 to show the picture from HDMI and the sound from digital optical. According to the manual the european models should be able to do this but mines doesnt seem to have the capability.

Cheers
