Just set up my new lcd tv, excellent picture via expressvu dish but no sound. I've tried the optical port as well as the analog rca connectors and am using the hdmi connector in port 1. Nothing. With nothing connected to the tv and the volume cranked up to 90 I don't even hear any hissing noises from the internal speakers?

trade your TV or Sound bar to something that is compatible. IE Make it work, No optical port find a sound bar that works with RCA, Make certin you have RCA audio outputs on your tv, if you want the sound bar than New TV
I can't speak on whether or not the apple tv has such a setting but the Bluray players does. You go into the bluray player's settings and change the audio output.Your choices should be 2 ch possibly hdmi, bitstream, pcm, and auto. Try hdmi, 2 ch, and pcm because if you have it on auto you might not get sound via an hdmi cable and it's probably not bitstream but try bitstream if none of the others work.
This is how AUDIO works in HDMI setup, you can select the source to send the digital audio along with the digital video through HDMI, the receiving end HDMI sound setup must be set to receive the digital audio through HDMI. Otherwise the audio may be sent and received through analog audio ports (Red (Right channel) and White (Left channel) RCA jacks) in stead. Most of the new TV and DVD player use auto detection.
So please check the HDMI audio setup to see how the audio signals are set to be processed.
you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead
Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.
Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.
The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.
One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.
OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.
NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.
Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up
