Surround sound only playing 2channel

Help

I have a surround system that has multiple inputs (ps4, chromecast and v6) 

I only get 5.1 from the PlayStation and nothing else. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have tried hdmi and optical cable to get 5.1 but nothing works

Re: Surround sound only playing 2channel

Hello

I have found this post - https://community.playstation.com/content/pdc/us/en_US/pdc-communities/support/Consoles-Peripherals.... and this one where there is a solution https://en.community.sonos.com/setting-up-sonos-228990/my-experience-getting-5-1-from-the-ps4-676547...

It looks like reading the post that it is an issue with the PS4.

The V6's audio setting must be Dolby Digital and you'll need to select a source which outputs 5.1, note that many don't including some HD channels and YouTube.
