Hi,


Hoping somebody can help me get surround sound working on ATV3.


I have a new ATV3 hooked up to a Sony BDV-N590 receiver system (via HDMI) which is then connected to a Sony Bravia KDL-HX850 TV (both new models). However I cannot get 5.1 sound from the ATV - only 2.0. I am trying to play movies downloaded from iTunes which are supposed to be 5.1.


I have played with the settings on both the ATV and the receiver but cannot see any obvious issue. Dolby Output in ATV settings is set to On but this makes no difference. 5.1 works fine with blu rays and from the connected PS3 so I am thinking the issue must be with the ATV?


Any ideas would be gratefully received - many thanks in advance!

It could also depend on what material was downloaded from

iTunes. Some content is not 5.1.

Thanks for the advice. @CubicleCrusher: Dolby digital is set to 'On', yes. Will give the optical cable a try and see if that solves it, hadn't thought of that. @grasshoppers: the films i'm trying say they have 5.1, will try some others though just in case...
