I have my MySkyHDi set up to one TV with hdmi via an AMP with SPDIF and the other TV directly with hdmi.  For some reason the audio via hdmi has stopped working.
I have tried direct hdmi connections and rebooting the the MySky (both soft and hard reboots).  The configuration of the box has not been changed between working and not working.  I have delved into the setup menu of the box and don't see anything that has changed.

Has anyone else struck this?

Problem solved. The mute button must have got pressed at some stage. I didn't realise that it didn't mute the SPDIF output as well.Embarassed

I never use the mysky remote volume controls so it didn't even enter my head.

Now to put everything back the way it was.....Yell

Edit:  Thanks for the heads up bcourtney.  I had just discovered the mute trap and was formulating my embarassed second post when you posted.

Still, better to post and appear stupid  than to not ask and watch in silence...

I have always ued the SPDIF as the AC3 sound does not go through the HDMI cable, so no Dolby Digital display on my AMP, really need it on CSI

(though I think it was CSI Miami that blew my Sub)
