Help & settings

Settings

audio

dolby digital

If a channel is broadcasting a 5.1 feed this setting gives me 5.1 via hdmi connected to my sound bar but should also be good for optical to.

A TOSLINK cable between the V6 and amp will carry 5.1 audio.

Re: How to set my audio settings to 5.1

How is this all connect up?  Does the V6 audio go via the tv?

Al ot of tv's will do 5.1 output if from their own tuner or apps - but will not pass-thru 5.1 audio when it is from a HDMI source.

Via an optical cable to a surround system I play the V6 through the same system so basically all audio comes through that

The only guaranteed way to get 5.1 audio is from the V6 to your amp. Should you swap your amp for an AVR, then V6 ---> AVR ---> TV by HDMI cables will work so long as you don't run into HDCP 2.2 problems.

Re: How to set my audio settings to 5.1

If I can get 5.1 from my tv via an optical cable to a surround system then in simple terms why will 5.1 not work from a V6 box via an optical cable to my surround system, all my audio either from tv or V6 goes through the optical cable its only 5.1 from the V6 that I cant get

I misunderstood you. You ought to get 5.1 from the V6 to the amp, can't explain why this doesn't work unless the TOSLINK is faulty.
