Any comment on d2H Movies Picture Quality?I’ve Home Theatre which accepts only Optical Audio Input as Aux I/P, d2H offers Co-axial O/p for 5.1 Ch Audio O/p. So I connect TV and HD Satellite Box with HDMI Cable and take out Optical Audio O/p of TV to my Home Theatre. It was perfectly fine till I was using Tata Sky HD.Now for some of the HD Channels, I get a low volume whistle from my rear HT speakers while the actual content of the Sound (for rear speakers) is absent. Sometimes, same is also true for d2H movies channels.My question is whether at first place, all the HD channels have 5.1 Ch. Sound. Next, whether d2H movie channels are HD or upscaled?Is there a solution to this problem?

D2h HD supports 5.1 ch sound. I have experienced it myself. I have been watching HD channels since long time, and have observed that depending upon channel provider, u get 5.1 ch sound. Now Travel XP doesnt seem to have 5.1 ch audio. But Star HD channels, and recent addition Colors HD surely have.U can get illusioned twice, may be thrice, but not always. So i m not under illusion for sure.Now, coming to ur question......may be ur connection is not done properly. Just try to tighten up some loose contacts esp between ur STB & the speaker set. If it doesnt solve, i think u just drop a mail to CC, to take up ur issue. When the engineer comes, dont let him close ur complaint, until u get sound to ur satisfaction.
