Sky puts out new music channel and only sound comes out my center speaker. All other music channels use all speakers with same set up.

Whats the point of mono music channel, get better sound off fm radio.

Gave it a couple of days just to see if just the program that was on, but always mono.

How do you have your amp configured? Stereo channels should only come out of the LF+RF speakers, not
"all" speakers.

Optical cable from my sky to reciever. Mysky set to dolby.

Left and right lights light up on reciever with prologic, but sound only comes out center speaker.

With other sky music channels, same set up, and prologic with left and right lights on, sound comes out all speakers, all i'm doing is changing the sky channel and sound from mtv hits is just one speaker verses all speakers on other music channels, so must be the channel.

I'm enjoying the new channel... seems to be good quality... but I'm wondering about picture quality. Does it look a little grainy to you guys?

mtv hits is stereo and bitrate seems to be low could be something like 544x576 25fps mpeg2 2500kbps audio mp2 192kb

MTV Hits is definitely in stereo, not mono.

You clearly have your setup incorrectly configured, as you shouldn't have sound coming out of all speakers on stereo channels unless you're applying some form of sound processing.

Channel 60.

Just to finish off (i hope) if change sound mode to stero get sound left, right speakers as others mentioned should be.

If have sound mode surround, then only centre speaker, where as other music channels including mtv classic do get surround sound on surround mode.
