Hi, my old Samsung FHD set doesn’t pass 5.1 signals from sky etc on HDMI out the optical as 5.1 but only as 2.0. To get round this I currently run HDMI from sky, BR into tv for pictures and sound from them on optical into a switch box to feed my Sonos Playbar on optical. Do any current TVs pass 5.1 in via HDMI on all ports to 5.1 out on optical? Samsung don’t seem to, according to them, but to any other brands? Thanks
