No dolby surround sound using HDMI/optical conections through TV

When I connect my Satellite TV receiver directly to my audio amplifier using the optical cable, and to the TV using HDMI, I have dolby surround sound but the audio is out of sync with the picture. When I connect the Satellite TV receiver to the TV using HDMI and then the TV to my audio amplifier using the optical cable the dolby surround sound does not work (but I do have sound). What is wrong and how can I fix the issue?

Hi TVjo- have you set the digital output to "dolby digital" in the TV menu? It is probably set to LPCM (Linear PCM) which is 2 channels only.
