Dolby Digital on Freeview HD?

Why can't I get DD sound from my setup? I have a Sony KDL-40EX503 TV (Freeview HD) connected via optical digital cable to a Yamaha DSP-AX1 AV amp, which does not have any HDMI sockets.Until recently I was receiving DD sound via my Humax Foxsat (Freesat PVR) connected to the same amp with the same optical digital cable, (SPDIF from the Humax to optical digital on the amp), but unfortunately, nearby large trees have gradually blocked the signal to my dish, and so now I only have access to Freeview. Could the answer be in the age of the Sony TV, which I purchased new in May, 2010? If so can this be resolved without my having to buy new stuff? I have been considering a Humax DTR-T1000 (YouView) if necessary. Would this give me Dolby Digital sound when connected via optical digital cable to my existing Yamaha AV amp?
