    dolby digital through coax

    marschner

      Is it not possible to get dolby digital through the digital coax audio. I have connected the digital out through the slingbox pro hd to the digital input on my amplifier. Even though my sat receiver shows it is in 5.1 dolby i only get normal stereo to my amplifier?. I have even tried to go directly from the sat receiver to the amp and it works fine.

          Why not use toslink out from the satellite receiver to the a/v receiver, and s/pidf coaxial out from the satellite to the Slingbox? Most satellite receivers have simultaneously active outputs (at least here in the US from DirecTV & Dishnetwork).

           

          Also make sure you have Dolby Digitial set to "on" from within the Satellite receivers audio menu.

              I can do that but the problem is the delay in picture on the pc compared to the sound if I connect the receiver directly to the amplifier. The sound also have to come from the slingbox. But as mentioned it is only stereo from the s/pdif out on the slingbox??
