Yes, so we have the same SW.
I do not understand your problem with Audio in DD+.
This is I think the same case as for the SX88 (no Plus).
The TV must also be DD + (is your TV old?).
When I got the SX8 HD ONE beta tester,
that's the first thing I tried, with the Multistreams in T2MI.
For now something that really does not work:
these are the programmed recordings
and partly the EPG on some programs.

Have a good day:)

Thanks, fairly new Sony TV. I will have to check to see if this is DD+ compatible.

If it is new enough (mine is a Sony Bravia of 2014) it should work without problem.
Have you tried with another HDMI cable, and also on another SONY HDMI socket , mine has 4 HDMI , and a socket it does not work ?

Yes tried another HDMI lead. It is a Sony Bravia KDL-32R403C model. I see AC3 support through HDMI 1 only via ARC, but no mention of plus in the spec. I seem to have the latest firmware installed.

Yes considering this Sony is only 2 years old, I'm not impressed. My sons 'Star Wars' Toshiba TV had no problem...May The Force be With You!!

A C-band test at the 18 ° west position.
Very difficult with 1.20m the SX8 HD ONE still manages to find a frequency.
This frequency is only 3.7 dB and has no reserve above the linc margin.18°0W_1803270947_4016_V.jpg18 west Blindscan C Band.jpg

The information given by the SX8 HD One is really complete.
For the feeds ads it's really ideal.

some examples:
you will notice that it does not have problems for near frequencies with the same SR.12546V.jpg12549V.jpg12564V.jpg12567V.jpg12570V.jpg

It's a machine for feeds for sure, sensitive tuner, quick bootup, easy simple menu, I like this one, ideal for me and 5000 channels is enough storage.
