Re: V6 Sound

Optical only supports Dolby & DTS, so nothing more than 5.1, but if your using HDMI then there really is no need for optical, that will transfer the audio.

Re: V6 Sound

If I recall correctly, the only thing it won't support is Dolby Atmos over optical.

Re: V6 Sound

Thanks boomish my amp is good but a bit pre HDMI so I am reliant on digital connections, ether from amp to virgin box or to tv, which work, obviously I have my box to tv connected via HDMI. So I am hoping that that a V6 box will work for audio the same way. Regards all that are helping Micky

Re: V6 Sound

Fortunately, my TV can pass the 5.1 signal through to my AV surround receiver from my old TiVo via HDMI as the much discussed problem arose with it's digital audio output https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-Media-TiVo-service/No-sound-on-recordings-and-after-paus...

So, has the V6 avoided that?

Re: V6 Sound

There should be no optical audio issues with the V6, and as far as I know any issues with optical out have been fixed on the older TiVo as well as part of the recent update.

Re: V6 Sound

I have a V6 connected to a Bose sound system. I found that the HDMI was not passing any surround sound at all only 2.0 I then connected the optical output and instantly got 5.1

Re: V6 Sound

In the audio settings for dolby digital on the tivo there are two options, select the one thats not PCM and you should now have 5.1
