Are you certain the amp takes audio through the HDMI feeds? I'm fairly sure my Sony DA1200ES doesn't. Maybe its a setup thing on mine, but I'm half sure I had to buy optic cables because it wouldn't! It was a while back.... so may have dreamt it! :-D

I got given a Sky HD+ box yesterday too. Not bothered to connect it yet as my Dreambox takes care of HD, but useful for the extra storage it has.

Yerp mate, i been using it all night :).

Some lower / entry models of amps dont carry HDMI Audio. This amp does. Had lovely DTS-HD pumping through last night watching a bluray :)

This one also does upconversion and 1080p upscaling.. ie: Plug a Wii in via component - it'll goto the TV from the amps HDMI socket and upscale to 1080p

Oi, cheeky minky. Entry Level indeed! Probably just a case of one of the first multi-HDMI receievers available. Thats the price for being an early adapter!

BTW, is your setup running from a server?

Just run all my movies etc from my Windows 7 PC - attached 1TB hard drive and shared over the network.

Hehe aye, nice amp u got.. Just a bit old now is all :).

Just pass everything through with optical or coaxial.. Or run the Acer Revo to ya TV, then if your TV has an optical out.. Sound to amp that way.

1TB? Dont you have many films? :w00t: I reckon my server will end up with about 8 TB on it. (Ive got about 400GB so far filled, but have about 4TB on 6TBs of drives to go over.

What formats do you use? Annoyingly, feeding my satellite receiver, it doesn't like ISOs or VIDEO_TS folders. But at least it likes MKV.

And the silly thing..... I dont even use it.... well just rarely. Once I sort out hanging the TV in a different location, I'll sort that all out though.

The Revo is in the games rook sitting above the TV on a shelf (with consoles and sat boxes), there is no 5.1 in that room, though the gaming chairs are WiFi and all thats needed for that room. The living room however, has its own HTPC (a proper machine!!) and all the gizmos. The wireing is a mess. I'm frightened to touch it tbh.
