I have a Dish T1050 and I notice that programmes recorded in HD5.1 only show as stereo on my receiver.

 

I have the T1050 plugged into a receiver and then into the TV.

 

"The Blacklist" on TV3 showed an HD5.1 icon but the receiver stayed in stereo mode.

 

What setting should I have on the T1050 to get HD5.1?

Try using the Audio Button on your remote to check the correct Audio track is selected. On my Panasonic I can switch between Stereo and 5.1 output with the Audio button.

I had a look at this - and at the time I don't think any thing was in 5.1 but by changing the audio track and then changing to AUTO rather than uncompressed in the main menu, the indicators on the receiver did show 5.1 possible. But it looks like I have to change the audio track for for each programme rather than it being a permanent setting.
