Hi All,
Can someone tell me how to receive the audio for the PBS channels on FTA AMC3? I can get the video just fine but no sound.

Many thanks for your help.

Thanks to everyone for the quick response. We are planning to upgrade to HD and will make sure to get the right capability to decode the PBS channels.

I would assume it was brought up in one or the other of those threads, but . . .
I do believe all the FTA hi def receivers will decode the AC3 and put it out the RCA audio leads.
It seems a common feature mentioned in all the reviews I've read.
... or you can take out digital audio on its own RCA or optical connector.

Recently I found a little speaker set for PC, has a digital input for AC3. It works!

I use BA-735s for PCM (uncompressed) digital sound from a coax digital output, but they won't work on Dolby Digital (compressed) signals. If you tune to an AC-3-only channel, all you'll get is high-pitched shrieking. They don't seem to have an onboard Dolby Digital decoder.
