Hi AVS Forum,
I'm trumpet, and this is my first time to do some serious work on my TV and Home Theater setup. As Thanksgiving gifts me and my dad bought Panasonic TC-L42ET5 as living room TV and Panasonic SC-BTT190 as home theater system. In addition I have a PS2 and a Wii with the intent of adding PS3 (and maybe Wii U lol). I need some help setting these things up.
My understanding is that SC-BTT190 does not have HDMI input, so that means it cannot do HD Audio for TV and externally connected device. I also believe that HDMI ARC from the TV does not pass 5.1 audio through. So does the TV pass 5.1 audio (Dolby Digital and DTS) when using TOSLINK for OTA?
Will TOSLINK pass Stereo audio when TV is using component input (for PS2 and Wii)?
Finally, will TOSLINK pass 5.1 audio when TV is using HDMI input (PC, PS3, etc)?
