Hi Ian.
How did you manage to get surround sound out of the audio cable?

That was the first thing I tried when 5.1 wasn't coming through hdmi. The old Vodafone tv box only passed on 5.1 via the optical cable so I thought it might be the same.

In the settings on my Vodafone tv box it recognises that I've got the optical cable connected, but I'm definately not getting 5.1 audio.

Hi Dean

 

To clarify, the 5.1 audio is only working on the Netflix app.  But it worked immediately with Dolby audio selected in the VFTV menu (Settings->more settings->audio & visual-> select dolby audio)  and when playing netflix content, arrow up to options/audio & subtitles/ select english original 5.1 - although this was selected by default I think.

 

The Netflix app is one thing that is great about the newish Vodafone TV.  We don't have a smart TV, so having the app saves sending it to our Chromecast through a phone.

I believe Vodafone is disabling this functionality on purpose as they have to pay royalty fees for enabling Dolby.

I will be calling Vodafone Support and asking for a refund and reporting them for breach of contract. Vodafone website stated that it works till it was highlighted in this thread and then they changed the wording. I logged a call 12 months ago.
