I bought a Q70R (product page in Swedish ) over the holidays, and I have a 5.1 surround sound speaker system that I wish to connect to this. The speaker system is connected to the TV using optical cable.
I can get the TV to output sound to the speaker, but I can't input anything other than Stereo sound to the TV (which of course means that my 5.1 system recieves a 2.0 signal).
I have tried this with both my PlayStation 4 and my computer. They both say that my TV only accepts stereo input.
This might be a TV settings issue, but I can't find any settings for this. User 'SjorsK' argues here that I should go into my TV's settings and set "Audio Format" to Bitstream, but I only have the option to change "Digital output Audio Format" to PCM or Dolby Digital.
Samsung support has been useless so far.

Thank you, but I am not sure what you mean. Are you asking if I can select my surround speakers from Settings > Sound > Sound Ouput > Bluetooth Speaker List?
My surround speakers do not have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth capabilities.
Hi Andrew, you seem to have some experience in this area. My problem is that I have configured surround sound over wifi 2.4GHz to MS550 sound barthe and pair Samsung AKG VL speakers. TV completes configuration and passes test with output to AKGs, but no output when in operational mode. I am using SmartThings App and the TV.
