Sky with Splitter HDMI not working with Dolby audio 5.1

This problem occurs with the Sky HDTV Decoder Plus SHR23 and the Splitter HDMI de 1 entrada para 4 HUIYISHUN outputs, but possibly also affects other decoders and other splitters. I just noticed the problem after installing SHR23, but it is possible that already happened before and I haven't noticed.

My setup is as follows: the HDMI output of the decoder is connected to the input of the Sky Splitter HDMI. The first output of the Splitter HDMI is connected to the Receiver Yamaha RX-A830, and the second output of the Splitter HDMI is connected to the HDMI Extender Set, It takes the image and sound of the Sky to another more distant TV (Slave Point).

The problem is that with this configuration, the Sky was getting audio in Receiver just as PCM 2.0, even when Dolby Digital was linked in Sky decoder. I realized that calling the Sky directly in the receiver this problem does not occur and he can play Dolby 5.1 and Dolby 2.0 correctly in the channels that offer audio with this encoding. The problem was not leaving only the receiver connected to the splitter.

The solution I found was quite simple, just inverted the outputs of the Splitter HDMI, passing the first HDMI Extender Set and the second in Receiver Yamaha RX-A830. Thus the audio Dolby 5.1 or Dolby 2.0 arrived correctly in receiver. Apparently the second door takes precedence in time to negotiate audio supported, ou something.

As for the slave point, He does not have a receiver. I figured that the TV could be muted because of not being able to decode the Dolby 5.1, but that didn't happen. I don't know if it is decoding the Dolby 5.1 or if the PCM audio is also being broadcast in parallel with Dolby, so that the receiver uses the Dolby and the slave point TV uses the PCM.

A suggestion: As you said it's an old client of Sky, you could ask for the cancellation, so they usually open negotiation and you could ask for an extra point to not have to use this workaround slave point and also get discounts or package best.

Tb I sign NET more than 10 years and asked to cancel a while ago, they doubled my internet to 60 MB to 120 MB and gave me a better package, and as the price was a little more than I would pay only for the internet out of the combo, I ended up accepting the proposal, even though countless useless channels on TV, in fact in addition to the open, just watch PFC and sport channels. Movies, series, etc, Despite having to pay for channels in the package, I prefer by torrent.

Formerly the NET mobile APP had a very interesting function that functioned as remote control using the wifi. It disappeared and never came back. Seeing your post, I don't doubt anything that the net has taken this product precisely not to facilitate the use of this slave point. Carriers bastards.

Friend, If u can help me, I have a unit of sky newest q your, but I've had your photo there and gave the same thing, I have a splitter with 4 hdmi outputs and he does not transmit audio 5.1 for the exits, I actually have only one output with HT 5.1 (my room), the others are normal tvs, so it makes no difference 2.0 or 5.1, good, I don't understand your solution, If you can help me and tell me what I could do to get on tv with the HT audio 5.1 I would be grateful.
Obs. The audio 5.1 only comes out on the HT if I connect the hdmi cable to the appliance direct from sky… in other words, It's not the cable, It's not the tv and not the sky, It's something of the splitter that ignores the distribution of 5.1 for the outputs I believe!
