How are you connecting to your home cinema system? Via HDMI passthrough or via Optical?
In regards to the PIN, it's an OFCOM requirement that Sky Cinema channels are PIN protected where the content is shown outside the watershed for it's rating for both live channels and recordings for Sky Cinema. It is the same for Sky's service, although the behaviour may be slightly different.

Currently with an optical cable. I've noticed when you press 'info" on the remote it doesn't even specify what sound is available. When you go to the audio on the left hand side it just says English Dolby digital. Should that be 5.1 ?

You can't. It is a restriction that has been imposed on Sky & any third party that takes their movie channels by OFCOM. It is a condition of showing movies outside of the normal watershed restrictions that PIN restrictions must be "locked on" irrespective of the setting the customer has on their box.

Hi connect optical from amp direct to tv, you are connected from tivo to tv via hdmi so it will just take a different route. If your tv doesn't optical, think about buying a slightly higher spec next time. Regards Micky
Sorted Mick , thanks mate. You may not know but worth a shot , I also have a PS4. This has an optical output but my TV only has one optical & as you suggested is now going TV to amplifier. So my PS4 is not in 5.1 as I know it should. Drives me nuts. Any ideas ?
