Checked the in-game volume ?

Menu > Options > Sound/ Audio

Start > Options > Sound/ Audio

yep done all that, it works fine for video and the boot up logo but to get sound in a game i have to switch the xbox to stereo, but it was working fine for the past few months on 5.1.

Have you tried switching the sound options (on the Xbox) from "Dolby Digital" to "Stereo" and back again? Apparently there is a bit of a handshaking issue between The console and some 5.1 systems on occasion.

sorted it now, looks like one of my little monkeys completely reprogrammed my denon surround system, never mind, thanks for the help anyway.
