I have a DM500HD connected via HDMI to a Sony DN1050 amp. I watch FTA French TV
on Eutelsat 5.0W [on 11591 V 20000 QPSK]. Up till April all was OK.
Since then I get both Video and Audio on France 3, but Video only for
France 2 and France 4. In the Information menu, Service, PIDs, the Sound PID
shows N/A for Fr2 and Fr4, and 0x00e6 for Fr3.
I have found this note:
Eutelsat 5 West A (5°W), 2016-04-05

and this thread:
which says the problem is with Dolby 5.1 encoded sound (which ties in with
the Fr2/Fr3/Fr4 effect), and mentions AC3 downmix (OFF) and HDMI cables.
With some German boradcats on 19.2E I see a Dolby 2.0 sound channel.
But my problem seems to be that I get no Sound PID for Fr2, right back in the
Tuner, rather than in the subsequent audio format decoding.
Do I need a more modern DB ?
