Surround sound to work with sky+

Is it possible to watch sky tv using the surround sound on my Sony DAV S300?
Will an optical cable work between the dvd player and Sky+ box to enable this sound function?

    Am I best connecting the two with a optical cable? To be honest I'm not even sure if the DVD player supports an optical cable.

    If it has optical input then it will give surround sound. you can connect normal RCA red-white audio cable in dvd player input to get surround sound in Amp Menu options.

Hi, I have bought a Sony Dav s550 Surround Sound System. When I tried to set it up all I got was a picture on the tv but no sound. I checked the fibre optic lead even bought a new one but still no sound...


Check to see if your sky box has an output for fiber optic cable, if it does then go to the box configuration and make sure its enabled. Also is possible to transfer sound through HDMI so if your sky box has an output make sure audio is enabled.
If the box does not have the fiber optic out or HDMI then you will have to go old style with regular red and white audio cables and connect them to your home theater system. If you want audio for both TV and surround system you can use Adaptor Splitter 1 Male to 2 Female Audio AV
and get two of them, one for the reds and one for the whites that will be connected to your sky box, i hope it all makes sense and helps.

The first two links you've probalbly seen before, they show conncections and connectors. I looked at pictures of your system and it would appear that the only input for video and audio is RCA. I think it has s-video for video only(s-video slightly better). The third link is the only way I can see to get what you are asking. It is an HDMI to RCA adaptor. You would use an HDMI cable out from your set top box to the adaptor then, RCA cables to your DAV-S300. It's the only way I can see. Hope this helps.

A stereo 2 phono lead input from a sky box will have dolby pro logic surround info on it (when its a surround programme of course)

The Sony should then process this and give sound on the centre and rears too.

The DAVS300 does'nt have an optic/coax digital input so you can't have dolby digital from an external source- only from its own DVD player

Hissing and Humming when trying to use the speakers for the tv


The sony manual tells you how to connect to a TV however most of us now watch TV connected to a SKY box. The Scart lead needs to be connected to the Sky box for the sound to work correctly. Ignore the Manual and connect the Scart lead from the DVD Unit directly into you're sky box. It works fine.

How do i connect to sky hd and sony kdl 40w 4710 and dav-is10 i have hdmi from skyhd to tv and hdmi from home cinema to tv what else is required as i cant get surround sound from tv


you need a Optical audio cable, run this from the back of your Sky HD box to the Surround sound. Not all Broadcast are transmitted in DD so press your i button on the sky remote and you will see this on the yellow bar above the program information if it is..

Might be worth running a set of White and Red audio cable from the HD box to the Surround sound as well that way you can just mute your telly and have the lot coming through the surround sound system.

Hope this clears things up for you

No suround when watching tv with sky + box,


You will need a DVD player with an optical output, as the sky engineer said. A Co-axial S/PDIF output could also work if your surround sound has that input, however not all units transmit surround encoded sound through the Co-Axial output. Only option really is to upgrade if that doesn't work
