Hello everyone, i just bought a 5.1 surround sound system, and connected it to my tv with an Optical Cable but the TV outputs only stereo sound. What can i do? I already set the TV to output to "external speakers" and set the digital audio to "PCM" but still i can't get 5.1 surround.
(FYI the surround system is a Sony HT-S20R
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok, Just FYI, after many days of research i found out that the problem is that Samsung doesn't pass through 5.1 audio from HDMI to Toslink. Pretty bad functionality but ok
That is a pretty bummer!!!
Nowhere in the manual that is even mentioned! I wasn't assuming that something so insignificant could be considered as a cost reduction "feature"...
At least, now, we can put this matter to rest. I was quite intrigued!
Shame you can't get the setup to fully experience due to this.
Have a great day!
