I have purchased an Onkyo TX-SR309 and would like to get it set up with Sky+HD and XBox with Dolby Digital Surround Sound.

Can this be done through HDMI or do I need other cables to get surround sound?

That's what I have read about Sky. What about the Xbox? Will that work through the HDMI to provide DD?

Hi

I have an xbox360 and an onkyo 606. You do get DD5.1 through the HDMI cable.

Sorry to hijack the thread but I need to ask a similar question...

I am getting my first AVR in a few weeks (Yamaha 3020, Pioneer LX86 or Denon 4520).

I have a Dreambox 800HD SE which I will connect to the AVR via HDMI.

Do I need optical or Coaxial as well for 5.1 sound? What about the picture then... is it still passed through HDMI?

Thanks

Thanks man :)

Also just to confirm... DD5.1 is the max the Dreambox can do correct?
