Hi all

I have a Onkyo 607 receiver paired with a Samsung Plasma TV.  I have MySky HD and have run picture to the Receiver via HDMI and the sound to the Receiver via coax as I understand there are issues with sky transmitting 5.1 over HDMI.  The problem is I bought an HDMI powered splitter from JAYCAR so I can watch sky in another room on a new Samsung LCD but I can't get sound on the second TV consistantly.  When I first installed it I had sound perfectly on the second TV via HDMI (although I assume 2 channels only) but then after a week the sound turned off.  Then the sound came back and is now off again.  It is very bizzare and I have not been touching any settings.  Could it be a problem with the splitter or is Sky mucking round with its settings?

Many thanks

It'll probably depend on what channel you're on and what the audio is on the specific programme - you may have to disable 5.1 and possibly ACC on the MySkyHD box in order to get it to work on the 2nd TV.

(I know I have to do this on my Vu+Duo decoder if I connect it directly to the TV via HDMI without going via the amp)

Not sure what the sky issues are with 5.1 sound over hdmi. I have my skhdi box connected to an onkyo sr604 with hdmi cable and my 5.1 sound works fine.

Thanks both. When I set it up sky told me 5.1 would not work via HDMI and when I tried it they were right. That was two years back so they may have sorted that issue out now. I recall I tried changing the sky settings to stereo but that did not seem to help.
